    Burpee Bingo: At any point between here and Mary, someone can call BINGO, and the whole group must drop for 1 burpee. Rules:

    1. The BINGO must be enthusiastic
    2. The same person cannot say BINGO twice in a row.
    3. The whole group must be within earshot when you say it.

    IDITEROD – All PAX stop at every speed bump for 5 HR Merkins, 5 WWIIs and 5 Squats. Then mosey to the next speed bump. Continue around the building. At each corner, circle back to the six and continue from there, unless you are the six. Second round: 5 CDDs, 5 Lunges (single count), 5 Jump Squats at each speed bump.

    One lap mosey around the building. 

    Mosey back to flags.

    Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.

    Isaiah 30:18
    • God is merciful and just. He has expectations for us, but he gives grace.
    • To wait does not mean we do nothing, it means we don’t move on to what we think is best when things aren’t going our way.


    • Title comes from a genuine inquiry YHC had to the pax via text post-workout: “What are the warning signs for hypothermia? Because everything from my knees to my nipples was red when I got undressed…”
    • While there was not much snow on the surfaces where exercises were performed, there had been snow that turned to slush. That was genuinely worse.
    • Many curses (under and over breath) at each instance of HR Merkins and WWIIs
    • Some mumble chatter about the wisdom of buying into AMC or Gamestop stock at the moment.
    • A reasonable number of BINGOs were called. YHC would put it at a rough estimate of 15-20.
    • COT comes from YHC’s youngest 2.0’s name, Milo (=merciful) Justice.
