The Thang

We split into two groups (Rabbits and Rhinos) for an overly complicated run up Elmwood Avenue in OP. Rhinos ran 2 blocks north, then stopped to do 50 merkins. Rabbits ran 3 blocks north, then 1 block back to meet up with the Rhinos. Then the groups repeated the pattern, but switched roles so Rabbits ran 2 blocks north and stopped to exercise while Rhinos ran 3 and back 1. We continued in this way until Greenfield St. before turning around and following the same pattern back to the Wreck Center.

Stopping-point exercises included:

  • Merkins
  • Big boys
  • Plank jacks
  • Bobby Hurleys
  • Mountain climbers
  • Sidestraddle hops
  • Squats


When you’re feeling stuck or dissatisfied, try changing something up. Doesn’t have to be anything huge; take your family someplace new, work somewhere different for a while, deviate from the usual routine. Sometimes you need to shake things up, and even a small change can make a difference.
