Rest Exercises included Merkins; BWS; Alt. Shoulder Taps; No-Cheat Merkins; Sandbag Pass and Burpee; Chicken Peckers.

MARY: Flutter Kicks; Merkins; BWS; Alt. Shoulder Taps; LBCs.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Merry Christmas. Sign up for GrowRuck. Signing up is the hardest part.

COT: When Washington crossed the Delaware, nothing went according to plan. Only 1/3 of his force managed the crossing. They arrived 4 hours late. Skirmishers diminished the element of surprise. And no troops were positioned to cut off the Hessian’s escape route. The Continentals attacked anyway, taking advantage of terrible weather, and ultimately killing or capturing the entire Hessian force. This holiday season, when nothing is going according to your plans, press forward anyway. It’s the path to victory.
