Strong showing at #StinkHill two days before Christmas, 16 PAX (1 FNG). Plenty of mumble chatter and material for the moleskin section. The theme of the workout was Christmas Sterotypes (see video below).Here is went down at the finale of YHC’s inadvertent Virginia Beach Week (Q #3 or 3).
30 side straddle hops – In cadence (IC)
15 Don Quixote’s – IC
15 mountain climbers – IC
15 merkins – IC
Mosey to top of StinkHill and retrieve coupons (rocks).
Name Game: “Borrowed” from McGruff’s, Mentos’s, and YHC’s GoRuck event. In plank, 1st PAX announces name, 2nd PAX repeats 1st PAX name and announces his name. Continue around circle until last PAX has to remember all 16 names. If correct reciting of names, 5 merkins. If incorrect, 10 burpees. The burpees actually provided an unintended break from the plank.
Identify your and your spouse or best friend’s Christmas stereotype and the associated exercise (see below). AMRAP of 20 reps of 1st exercise at top of hill, run to lip of hill, 10 merkins, crawl bear to bottom of hill, 20 reps of 2nd exercise, bear crawl to lip, 10 merkins, run to top of hill. 12 minutes.

Circle of Trust:
Christmas story: Luke 2:1-7 (ESV) “1 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This was the first registration when[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be registered, each to his own town. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed,[b] who was with child. 6 And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.”
