Indian Run

This somehow turned into “sprint to the front in the most inventive way possible”. 

Pause at the entrance to Scrooge.  Spirit Fingers made me think of the possibility of using some bleachers for step-ups…however, upon testing them, realized that the risks of step-ups on the cold/slick bleachers may outweigh the benefits.  Instead, a little more COP:

This was quite a cold gathering.  I thought at first that I was going to be the only one to show until other PAX trickled in.  Interestingly, each time we took a lap around Hoppa’s Yard, someone else showed up.  First, it was Bunker.  Then, it was Paycheck.  YHC contemplated intermittent Capri laps throughout the workout…who knows how many we would have ended up with by the end!  Fortunately, things warmed up as the workout progressed, for which I was thankful.  By the end, the PAX was excited to find out that we would be doing Bear Crawls and Crawl Bears.  When I Q’d on Monday, I promised no Bear Crawls, for which I kept my word.  However, today was not Monday.  Considering how cold it was, and that there was a group already starting some ramp building (great work brothers!), it wasn’t surprising to have slightly lower numbers.  Spirit Fingers pointed out that it was a Rumble take-over…we used the Rumble Flag, most of the PAX in attendance were regular Rumblers… Great work by everyone!  Thanks for letting me lead you today brothers!
