YHC had been making it known all week that Friday at RAM was my birthday Q. I got my first surprise to see Mr. Arrow himself, Fuse, pre-running with Powder. Wasn’t sure he even knew where to meet on Fridays. Anyways, even with the threat of snow, 15 strong PAX eventually rolled in for some running and moving.
Thang: No Warmup, shotgun start. First stop at Hamptom Height CC for 36 Merkins, 36 LBC’s, 36 Squats. We then turned right on 21st Ave NE and stopped at 13th ST NE for 36 Hand Release Merkins, 36 Mountain Climbers, and 10 Star Jumps (modified from the planned 36!). At this point we got pretty spread out, but met up again at the Rec off Highland for 12 Burpees and 12 Broad Jump Burpees. After one more stop for an additional 12 Burpees to get to 36, we ended up at the flag with 3.6 miles. There were a few minutes left so we had time for Kapowski to call out 20 IC American Hammers and Flamer to force us do to 8 IC Flamers.
WOD: From 2 Corinthians 8:9, Jesus was rich but became poor to save us from our sins. The Christmas story really is a riches-to-rags story when we think off all He left in heaven to come to a lowly manger and live among us.
All for now, prayers for all of you who have kids going nuts with the snow!
