Over the River and Through the Woods


38 degrees with a breeze

5 PAX posted for a romp through the woods.  We started a few minutes late as we waited for Teardrop to pull in (no surprise he was running a bit late; something about bodily functions).  We started the warm-a-rama and by the time we finished Pilates rolled in (at least these guys are consistent).

Warm-a-rama: Arm Circles, Sun Gods, Huggy Bears, Abe Vigoda, Grass Pickers, Slow to Fast Mountain Climbers, Calf Stretch, Hamstring Stretch

Day’s Thought: 4th Week of Advent – Joy

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid!  Listen carefully, for I proclaim to you good news that brings great joy to all the people: Today your Savior is born in the city of David.  He is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11

Off we went on our trail run.  The disclaimer was given as we approached the bridge over the Schuylkill River.

We ran the Schuylkill River Trail to the parking lot by the Bartram Trail and then back again (~ 2.25 miles).  Along the way we did Dips, Nur, Lunge Walk, Burpees, Merkins, Squats, Bonnie Blairs, Step Ups, Pyramid Merkins, ATMs, Carolina Dry Docks, and maybe some other stuff.  We had some good mumblechatter as we enjoyed our scenic romp along the river.

The song goes: “Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house we go… Over the river and through the woods oh how the wind does blow. It stings the toes and bites the nose as over the ground we go…”  However, even though it was cool this morning, we didn’t have the stinging or biting sensations; that will no doubt come over the next few months.

We made it back to the shovel flag shortly after 8:00.  No time for Mary.

COT: Thanks for the Christmas season.  Prayers for those without family at this time.  Prayers for upcoming Christmas Eve services.

Merry Christmas!
