Stage 14: Burpees x7, Crawl Bear Up the Stairs, Burpee, jog down – Sally won

Stage 15: Mosey/Jailbreak to parking garage – Sally won

Stage 16 – Rugby Sit Ups x20 – Icebox won

Final Stage – Bear Crawl to the top of the parking garage. PAX are granted head starts on the peloton based on the number of stages they won.

Coach K – 90 second headstart

Icebox/Sally – 30 second headstart

Pow Pow, Sweet Baby, Pepper – 10 second headstart

Coach K won by a ton.  The headstart, and the fact that he is probably the best bear crawler of the bunch led to a complete blowout.  Pow Pow had an impressive second place finish and YHC believes Sally finished third.


Yellow Jersey – Coach K

Green Jersey (most stage wins) – Icebox

White Jersey (40+ division) – Pow Pow

Courageous Rider – Sally


Thanks for playing along for a very intense workout and competition.  It was an honor to watch you all battle fatigue and compete with each other to complete this beatdown.  

Heck of a day for a new guy to show up… Mini Wheat, YHC apologizes if we weren’t the most welcoming crew this morning.  Competition and the intensity level of this workout significantly reduced the amount of friendly chatter.  If you can make it through this workout you can make it through pretty much all of them.

Mini Wheat got his name because he is from Battle Creek, Michigan, home of Kellogg’s.  We initially named him Flo because he is about to open his own State Farm agency.  We then decided that we will have other opportunities to name people after insurance commercial characters, but we probably won’t have too many opportunities to name people after Kellogg’s cereals.  Hope to see you out there again soon brother.
