Northeast Tennessee

2 Mile Follow-The-Chalk Run

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Iron Horse (Founders Park)

With eight brothers gearing up for the Goliath 10K course on Sunday, I was inspired to simulate a run-heavy obstacle course as best as we could on our home turf. Plus, I hate to run, so I always schedule a lot of it when I’m on the Q.




  • Through The Tunnel (15 IC)
  • Willie Mays Hayes (15 IC)
  • Baby Arm Circles (20 IC, each direction)
  • Side Straddle Hop (51 IC)

The Thang

  • Complete as many 1/2 mile (ish) laps as you can in 35 minutes, with staggered calisthenic interruptions including: 5 Burpees, 20 Merkins, 20 Dips, 1 Fist Bump, 20 Squat Jumps, 5 Wall Jump Ups, and a 30-Second Hamstring Stretch per lap. Encouraging notes about how sexy and capable the PAX are were written on ground, along the way.


  • Flutter Kicks (100+ IC) I think the last guy collapsed around 107. Singlet is the man!

Circle Of Trust

Counterama with 20 in attendance, for a new Thursday record. Welcome FNG “Sweater Vest”



Most of the guys got in four laps (2 miles); a handful of us got in three (1 1/2 miles), but everybody worked hard and got in good work. Shout-out to Slugger and Jobs who have been bringing it since their first day. You guys inspire me. This is one of those days that I know I would have done less if I didn’t have buddies working alongside me (Thanks 2nd Amendment, Blueberry Fairy, and Keystone).
