Friday Run Club! Hitting the streets for a partner mission. 1 tortoise and 1 hare will team up for a 3 to 5 mile run while also completing a series of merkins, squats and side straddle hops.


11/13/20 Backblast: 7 PAX showed for some partner “Tortoise and the Hare” around South Oak Park on a brisk 32 degree morning at the Wreck Center. 

PAX: Flay, Malort, Rossy, Cowboy Mouth, Baywatch, Alliance and FVI (Q).

Warm-Up: SMS (20 Squats, 20 Merkins, 20 Side Straddle Hops)

The Thang Run Club:

Partner-up – one tortoise (slow runner), one hare (fast runner). All PAX are made aware of the run course. 

The hare takes off quickly while the tortoise follows the same path. The hare touches landmark #1 (corner of Oak Park Ave. and Jackson Blvd./Fox Park) and heads back the same path to meet his tortoise. When the partners meet they perform SMS in cadence  (20 Squats, 20 Merkins, 20 Side Straddle Hops). 

The hare releases again and runs quickly to landmark #2 (Longfellow School Mini Track), tortoise follows down the same path. Hare runs loops around the track until tortoise arrives. Upon arrival the partners perform another SMS (20 Squats, 20 Merkins, 20 Side Straddle Hops.

The hare releases once again and runs to home base (Wreck Center), tortoise follows. Once the hare hits home, he goes back the same path to get the tortoise. When they meet, another SMS is performed. 

All hare/tortoise partners go backwards down the same run path until all groups meet up. No man left behind. Once united, the PAX run together back to home base (Wreck Center).

Cool down:
