The Thang:

Started off with a leisurely warm-up Ricky Bobby lap around the track, slow enough for one or two PAX to greet everyone as they ran by.

Next, we learned what it’s really like to take two steps forward, one step back.  Started at the goal line, sprint forward 20, back 10, clap Merkin, escalating to 9 clap Merkins on opposing 10 yard line.  YHC and couple others might have fumbled the clap with a few yards to go, just like another DC team does that plays on a football field.  Then, back to the start again with 20 forward, 10 back, with jump squats.

From there PAX headed over to the Arena.  AMRAP in 10 minutes (give or take) of 5 burpee box jumps, 10 Johnny dramas on the stairs, then up the stairs for 15 Aussie pullups and back around to start again.

Then, back to the Zoo for some animals.  60 yards of alternating bear crawl 10 yards, frog jump 10 yards, then 60 yards back of inch worm 10 yards, crab walk 10 yards

Mary included Flutter kicks, YTW Supermans, LBCs, Dolly

COT:  In the history of humanity, men evolved as social creatures but a “feature” of modern society is that we lock ourselves inside with our iPhones and big TV’s for a big dose of loneliness.  Good to get outside and run with a pack like our ancestors.
