Six men braved freezing temperatures at the Valley Playground at J.J. Beillo Park, where they endured the following unpleasantness:

After a brief mosey from the parking lot to the entrance to the baseball fields, YHC administered the Mission, the Core Principles, a disclaimer — everything shy of the pledge of allegiance — and we proceeded.

WOR:

SSH x 20
Imperial Walker x 10
Weed Picker x 5
Sun Gods – OYO
Exercise formerly known as Michael Phelps – OYO

Then we all grabbed coupons, choose-your-own-adventure style, moseyed away from the playground to the nearest light pole, and away we went.

THANG:

Four rounds of a four-exercise escalator.

For the first two rounds, we rifle carried between poles. For the final two rounds, we moseyed with the coupon between poles.

First Pole: 10 merkins
Second Pole: 10 merkins, 20 coupon curls
Third Pole: 10 merkins, 20 coupon curls, 30 coupon squats
Fourth Pole: 10 merkins, 20 coupon curls, 30 coupon squats, 40 overhead coupon press

After three-and-three-quarter rounds of this, YHC elected to skip the last of the overhead presses. Apologies to Sooorie.

We then ended our mile run with a short indigenous persons jaunt which ended at the playround, where we worked on pull-up form for about four minutes until it was time. Start on time, end on time.

COT:

In Murphy City tradition, we celebrated the memory of John H. Pruitt, one of 19 service members to have been awarded the medal of honor twice. Corporal Henry was a Marine who, in France during World War I, single-handedly attacked and took over two machine gun positions, killing two of the enemy. And then went on to capture 40 of he enemy in a nearby dugout. He died the next day by shellfire. He was 22-years old. Corporal Pruitt was awarded the Medal of Honor twice, three silver stars, and two purple hearts.

Prayers for our fellow PAX enduring hardships.
