“Build-a-date”

Seeing as we were present on a date where each digit was divisible by 7, the PAX performed seven rounds of increasing reps where the second and third digits were multiplied by the first until we arrived at today’s date. 7-28-21.

Since the previous day was Mountie’s birthday, both Brisket & Mountie were now 42. This was a great excuse to break down 42 into its factors and multiply up to 42 with some reps. Inbetween reps, the Q revealed some facts about 42!

First Round
First digit: Burpees
Second digit: StepUps

Second Round
First digit: Burpees
Second digit: Dips

A marathon course is 42 kilometres long. Well, 42,195 kilometres, to be precise. This exact distance was first introduced at the 1908 Olympics in London. By adding 195 metres, the race finished right in front of the Royal Box. It was never changed after that.
Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play Major League Baseball, had the jersey with the number 42. In 1997, MLB retired his uniform number, 42, across all major league teams; he was the first pro athlete in any sport to be so honored.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (the ninth and final(?) Star Wars movie) was released in 2019, 42 years after the 1977 original Star Wars film.

The Q was close to leaving for vacation and was not looking forward to the lack of workout locations downrange. Expressed gratitude for having the opportunity to get stronger with the HIMs of F3Princeton!
