Early 0530 start on thanksgiving morning. Who would be there? 12 HIM, that is who!



Quick disclaimer and a mosey around the loop back to the flag and some SSH and Weed Pickers.

That’s enough.

The Thang:

Stu allowed me to steal the Q this morning. I had a Thanksgiving themed workout list, a trunk full of girlfriends, 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses.  Hit it.

Partner up. One exercise per song. One partner runs while the other does the exercise. Swap and continue until a new song.

The playlist was inspired by a conversation with Stu one morning and we were talking about Styx. So a 70 high school playlist was born.



The Hodor – Hold coupon in front of you, squat and touch coupon to ground, stand while extending overhead, extend to behind head, hold and squat, return coupon to front hold = 1

Nurls for the Girls? (yeah, lame)




Grip, Rip, Roll Sitting up on your six, set coupon by your side. Grip the coupon. Pick it up and place it on the other side of your body. Now place your hands on top of the coupon, roll into a plank on top of the block, then roll to sitting on other side.


We made it through Nurls before time was up.

We have so much to be thankful for. As dysfunctional as our country seems to be, it is still the best place to live. Do you part to make it better!
