INTRO: Tremor historically has low numbers on the first Wednesday of each month, because it conflicts with The Shocker. This month we wanted to try combining the two AO’s. 15 men joined the experiment.
THANG: From the top of the garage, do 25 merkins/25 LBC’s. Run to the opposite corner, do 24 merkins/24 LBC’s. Run down the stairs, 23/23. Run out of the garage and around the block, back to the garage, 22/22. Run up the stairs. That’s one round. Repeat as many rounds as possible in 45 minutes, reducing the merkins and LBC’s by one rep at each stop.

DEVO: I prefaced my devo by recognizing aloud that verses of the Bible are often, and sometimes intentionally, taken out of context when you have a specific agenda. Lately, I have been contemplating going back into business for myself after a 7 year “vacation”. While looking for a devo last night, I came across Proverbs 6:6-8. “Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.” See?! The Bible is telling me that I shouldn’t have a boss, and that I should go back into business for myself!
No, no it’s not. Space Cowboy correctly pointed out that Proverbs 6:6-8 is saying, “don’t be lazy, be like the ant.” Have you ever watched ants? They are constantly busy, intuitively doing those tasks that need to get done, without a boss making them get it done. They don’t need a wife nagging them to take the garbage out, or to fix the faucet, or cut the grass. They don’t need a boss setting expectations and deadlines. Ants just get it done. Furthermore, like smart business owners, ants store-up provisions when times are good, in anticipation of those lean months.
MOLESKIN: Observations from the back of the pack:
The Respects are tough, with Grits, Old Flame, Peg, Old D, and BTB among the front runners and lapping YHC a few times.
Defib is still a freak, with his ruck that is apparently welded to his back…lapping YHC a few times.
Waldo and Masterload, the virgins, crushed it…lapping YHC a few times.
AC/DC, Pretzel, and Splinter are my kind of people, quietly and methodically knocking it out…lapping YHC a few times.
Snap-On gives a surprisingly good smack on the ass…as he lapped YHC a few times.
Muscadine is as competitive as ever, not letting a little Merlot slow him down…as he lapped YHC a few times.
Space Cowboy is that guy who always shows up, contributes, and puts out…and he lapped YHC a few times.
