6 Bud Knights thinking the city was burning down with all the smoke in the air, ditched their families to get one last good workout in before they died. To honor the city, we visited an old friend and introduced ourselves to a new one.
Nice little gallop into the city down into the Green’s parking deck with a little Tiger Rag backwards bear crawl up the ramp back to College St. Neal watched. Bust out of there towards the ‘Ship because if you don’t go there at least once during a PWW workout, it’s pretty much going to suck. Half way there, ICE starts screaming behind me. I stop to see what the hell was going on. I’m not making this up. He was yelling at a squirrel. Yes – a squirrel. Finish the slow sprint to the bottom of the ‘Ship. 10x Mountain Climbers 10x Merkins 10x MC 10x Merkins. Off to the other parking deck next to Discovery Place. Up the ramps switching forwards and backwards to the top. Down the stairs, over to the ‘Ship. Up the spiral with 100 LBC’s while waiting for Tormund to kill some random bum on the street. Out of the ‘Ship to Popular and 5th. 20x dips. Then down to The Ascent parking deck. Partner wheelbarrow up the 2 ramps to the 2nd floor. And then run to the 11th floor. Dead End. 50x flutters. Down the stairs to main lobby of the Ascent. Like MAIN lobby. Quick shout out to Hillary’s bellhop from Nantucket and then back to the Y. Just another 5.2 miles.
Wallace the Bellhop: born in 1997, Wallace was born into the proud family tradition of waiting hand in foot for the entire Bortz family dynasty. Starting with Hillary’s dog WeWe who lives in Natucket in the summer and St. Tropez in the winter, Wallace trims WeWe’s nails and feeds her Pup-a-roni’s Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. Wednesday’s and Friday’s, Wallace washes Hillary’s 7 BMW’s with only 1 shammy. What about Monday’s?? Come to find out, Wallace works as the bellhop at the new Ascent Apartment building in uptown. Who knew?
