At 05:23AM, YHC and Pebbles were at our AO looking at each other thinking, “Its just going to be the two of us, I guess?” and then in another 7 minutes, Gracie, Retail and Boyant rolled in!  Hot dog, we got ourselves a workout!

Warmup :
– Arm Circles IC x20
– Abe Vigodas IC x15
– Mosey around Reeves Park (about halfway, 0.25 miles)
– Along the way we did some additional warm-ups including a “squat and punch” maneuver, not sure what Pebbles called it, pretty sure it isn’t in the Exicon!

The Thang :
Back to our starting area where each PAX picked up their favorite Coupon.

Round 1 with partners :
– 15 Manmakers and 50 mountain climbers with coupons

– then tug-of-war!  45 seconds where a partner got on each end, leaned back, and used those muscles to pull as hard as they could.

Final tug-of war for another 45 seconds before moseying back to the flag.

6MOM was more like “2 minutes of Mary,” to make sure we were good on time :

YHC mentioned how Ecclesiastes 7:8 says “Finishing is better than starting.”  Lets make sure we FINISH whatever we’ve started – at work, at home, at play, and when exercising.

Pebbles mentioned how we need to be able to forgive each other, weather its your kid, your spouse, or a stranger on the street.
