Bernie Meets Murph


Low 60’s, sunny, light breeze, no humidity

A glorious morning!  It feels great to be alive and better yet to be outside to enjoy the morning.

3 PAX posted for the workout.  After strong turnouts the past few weeks, events conspired to keep the PAX away.  One had to move his daughter, a few were rumored to be out late at a drive-in movie with their families, another chose a tennis match over F3.  It is all good.

Disclaimer was loosely given.

Mosey to Basket Ball Court

Warm-a-rama: Arm Circles, Huggy Bears, Seal Jacks, Monkey Humpers, Abe Vigoda, Hillbillies, Best Stretch Ever, Calf Stretch, Zig Zag hops, High Knees

The Thang:

Next Saturday workout is at Blue Rocks Campground

Ringworm and Beaker went to Four Twelve for coffeeteria where we were joined by Ditto who was one of the PAX who chose tennis over F3 but still took time to check in on us.  It is always good to spend time with these guys.
