240 Block Curls for the Girls

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Arrowhead (Indian Trail)

20 PAX (one FNG) un-assed the sack for a spectacular morning in the upper 40s and felt their arms in the end.

  • SSH IC X25
  • Merkins IC X10
  • LBAC IC X10, reverse X10, Chinooks IC X10
  • TTT IC X10
  • WMH X10 each side
  • Merkins IC X10
    Four lighted cones were placed at opposite sides and ends of the track.  Each cone had instructions for the PAX when they arrived.  Exercises included block Merkins (X10), block squats (X20), block dips (X10) and the famous block curls X30!  I will state that 30 block curls got really old.  Each man was to carry his coupon either “Cusack” style (overhead) from light to light if possible.  At the end of 4 stations, each man was to run a 1/4 mile lap. Each man completed at least 2 complete cycles.


PBS has lost a close friend and father of FIVE to a car accident.  Very sad situation.  He encouraged each of us to hug our kids and our wives, for we are not guaranteed another day.
I am leaving on 5/15 for a 5 day camping, fly-fishing trip that I have done annually for about 24 years.  It is one of the only times that was get a chance to “just be boys again.”  I encourage each of us to take an opportunity to just be a boy from time to time.  We don’t get that opportunity very often.

Remember the Memorial Day Murph is coming up.  Donatello invited all to give Boilermaker on Fridays a try.  I should say challenged everyone.
