500 years ago today, Martin Luther sparked the Protestant Reformation with the writing and posting of his 95 Theses and altered the course of world history. I’m pretty confident this why we have Halloween and kids dress up and get candy from strangers, right?
When he did it, I’m sure a part of Luther was wondering, “you know what, I wonder if this will inspire people 500 years from now to do a workout in my name…” And to that, I’ll say: it did.
Maybe that’s not the case, but this was a momentous occasion in Protestant history and QIC wanted to make sure we all could remember that 500 years ago was Martin Luther’s release of his 95 Theses. So in remembrance of this hallowed day in history and on a chilly 38 degree Halloween morning, 21 men embarked on a workout in Luther’s name.
PAX: Frugal Macdoogal (QIC), Cathy, Venus, PreVac, Off Shore, Umbrella, Brother at Law, Big Bang, Cowboy, Binary, Funyuns, Donuts, Big Stick, Yard Sale, Floppy Disk, PSL, Bagger Vance, Edible Arrangements, Ludwig, CAPSLOCK, Dupree
Quick Disclaimer then straight in to mosey up the hill to flagpole parking lot in front of the main building in the Ag Center (probably not the formal name for the building).
Partner up. Partner One runs the loop down to the front gate and back up, almost 500 yards while Partner Two begins the MARTIN LUTHER workout, 95 reps of each exercise before moving to the next one. When Partner One returns, he picks up the workout while Partner Two runs the loop.
