Happy Birthday Croc! Wait, where is Croc…?

23 Jan 2019

Q: Priorities

Rumor is it was the anniversary of Croc’s birth on the big ball. Was he here to confirm? No. Were others there to help celebrate? Yes. Seven in fact. Welcome FNG Cooncat! Apparently it’s the state pet of Maine. Don’t tell me you came to Bash at the Beach this morning and didn’t learn anything!!

YHC was a little nervous that it might just be limited numbers this morning due to the extreme weather. The ole temperature thermometer (on my new Apple Watch…) said it dipped down to 40 degrees this morning but to my surprise, we were 7 strong to play around in the sand. Delighted in the turnout, I texted Dreamliner about our great workout. His response:

“That’s so cool. Very happy to hear you all are really growing. 

That said. You are complaining about 40 🤦‍♂️”

Well, the morning turned out to be beautiful despite being a little crisp. Here’s how it went down…

The Thang:

Catch me if you can – Lunges in the sand version – We started with 1 pax carrying two jugs lunge walking toward the pier. When caught, the pax carrying the jugs does 5 burpees and sprints to catch the jugs again. With 7 pax, the jugs never moved forward since there was always a line of pax waiting to take over. So an audible was called to have 2 pax lunging at a time carrying 1 jug overhead. Brutal.

Once we hit the pier, we split up into 3 groups. 1 group doing wall sits, 1 doing box jump, and 1 sprinting around 50 yards with the jugs and back. Once the jugs made it back to the pier, rotate. Each 3 rotations, we swapped groups.

Last, we had to get the jugs back to the flags. So we all lunge walked back passing the jugs in a line as necessary.


YHC happened to watch Hoosiers yesterday. Apparently I’m the only fan of 80s sports movies…

“If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential, to be the best you can be, I don’t care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, in my book we’re going to be winners.” – Norman Dale

If we’re giving our best, truly our best, to our jobs, our marriage, our family, our concentrica, then it doesn’t matter what the score is, we’ll be winners.
