Half π / COUNT

Date: 11/7

QIC: Black Hole

PAX: Black Hole, Scar, Photo Finish, Dos Equis, Brisket, Trailblazer, Dick Clark, Red Coat, Cruiser, WallE and Checkmate (FNG)

AO: The Rising

Recalling July 22nd as Pi approximation day (22/7), today (11/7) is half pi. Like 22/7, this decimal also repeats:

11/7 in decimal form

For those who don’t remember their math symbols, the bar above the numbers mean that that sequence repeats forever. So… 11/7 was responsible for the reps in today’s WO. In keeping with current events, today’s theme is the COUNT that is also continuing.

The THANG

  • 1 – Mosey – from the flag/parking lot to the bleachers and back

Grasspickers for the 6. 5 burpees for late pax.

  • 14 – Merkins, restaurant quality IC

  • 14N – Newton’s Cradle IC
  • 28T – Wide arm merkins IC

YHC couldn’t power through all 28 like Dick Clark and Cruiser, Respect! Wrap up with some deep breaths.

Strava trace: 1.14 mi

Count-o-rama, Name-o-rama.

COT: WallE commented on the state of the country after the election. Scar encouraged us to reach out to people in our lives who may be on the “other” side and build bridges. Despite many races still uncalled, the one thing that is clear is that a record number of people were motivated to vote and that can only be a good thing for democracy.

L to R: XX, Scar, Checkmate FNG, PhotoFinish, Trailblazer, Dick Clark, RedCoat, Cruiser, Brisket, WallE, BlackHole

9 HIM for coffeteria at Grover’s Mill Coffee.

Clockwise from 12 o’clock: Brisket, Checkmate FNG, Trailblazer, BlackHole, Scar, XX, Dick Clark, WallE, RedCoat

YHC intended to “draw” a quarter slice of the pie, since mathematically half π = 90 degrees. However, as the Strava trace shows, I failed. So, technically, XX was correct to have predicted that today’s theme was “half pie”.
