The “Betsy”

First completed Jan. 1st, 2009, this one was the brainchild of MCB.  Ideally, this should be done in the foothills of Mount Onion, in Arch Cape, OR.  But any gravel road heading up a steep hillside will do.  Oh, and it has to be raining.

Run/Hike: about 1.5 miles, up a steep hill, on a gravel road, in the rain, about 750 vertical feet in elevation.
On the Way Up Do: 100 pushups, 100 situps, 100 jumping jacks, 100 air-squats.
Run/Hike: down the hill.
We divided this one into about 7 sessions, most were 1 set of 10 each, a few were 2 sets of 10 each.  Since it was raining we actually did the situps last in a dry room at home, but depending on how badly you want to feel like a toughman, you could get your ass and back wet on the road.

Participants: John C., Matt B., Ben W.
