  • Banana – For his family as his mother-in-law passed away
  • Tender Spice – Praise for the change on his paperwork status (he should be getting the physical document soon)
  • Pinto – For him and his family as his niece died
  • Big Hurt – For him and his family since they have a 3 week old and the other kids have a cough (they don’t want the baby to get sick)


  • Pumpkin ruck is Thursday at Grayskull BYoP (bring your own pumpkin)
  • The Myrtle Beast is Saturday


This morning was a good bit of fun. Things got setup in time for the ruckers to start working out. We got to do the warm up with me and then they were off to the races. They made pretty good headway and soon had made it to station 2 where I checked in on them. They decided that Pill Pushes were not for them and modified it. I made sure to let them know that it would likely be getting progressively more difficult at each station. They gave some feedback afterwards that some things were not ruck friendly, so that will have to be taken into account for next year, though 2 ruckers, who coincidentally were not there, did ask for additions rather than ask for anything to be removed. Even so, I think the ruckers enjoyed it and got a good workout out of it. Unfortunately Speedwalker, Sharpie, and Pom Pom had to head out early, but hopefully they enjoyed it as well. I did get to Pom Pom and Keds who I had not seen in a while, so that was a pleasant surprise. I would like to be able to see them more frequently as well.

As for everyone else, I got to meet Urkle and his son YoYo Mama. They were in town for Urkle’s grandma’s birthday (91st?). They are from the Anderson area and they found out about the event via Twitter. I am glad they checked because otherwise they would have shown up while we were halfway through the workout and away from Scrooge itself. They powered through and well all made it out alive. Belding, Bionic, and Big Hurt lead the pack and even did some of station 8 (Hoppa’s Yard). We did modify the 2nd lap of the Trinity parking lot 4 Corners to be a kind of side shuffle instead of side bear crawls – they were nasty after those bear crawls and I don’t know who thought they would be a great idea, :).

Today the Reaper took many victims and we may have some Rip Van Winkle’s who may not be present for a little while, but will show up again for the next big event. The Reaper especially came for our knees and energy as I heard that many like me have some soreness in our knees and feel like taking a nap. Speaking of which, I should probably go and take one. So you guys have a great day. Thanks for coming on out!
