It time to start making some traditions now that Nolensville F3 has been around for over a year and made its mark on the region! So the Smyrna Crew (plus honorary member Ragdoll) picked up its high calling again, and led an amazing group of HIM in a Christmas Party to remember. Dirty Santa made his rounds again this year! LET’S PLAY!
Conditions: Just that right temp to make you think you need more layers than you really do, about 35 deg and more importantly NO wind and NOT WET.
PAX who made it: Cheezwhiz (co-Q), Ragdoll (co-Q), KermiT (co-Q), Tebow, Creeper, TV Guide, Stats, Typo +, Huggy, SexEd, Nimbus 153454663, Barney Feivel, Staples, and Little Miss Piggy (co-Q)
PreParty: YHC too busy helping Santa decorate and set up but I did see that they started at 5:15 with some Ruck Running (maybe to Defiant and back?)
Warm up: Disclaimer, random number generator (me pointing to four different PAX) gave us numbers 3,5,12,15
Circle up: IC baby arm circles x12 each, Good Mornings OYO, Toy soldiers OYO x12 each leg, Cherry Pickers IC x12
Last warm up part — run 100 yds to light pole x10 burpees and return –PAX numbered off in order of their return –number 3,5,12, 15 would be the PAX who get to open presents !
MOSEY – To the soccer field we go…As we approached the upper parking lot some PAX writhed in merriment at the sight of a sparkling tree (mainly me…the excitement level within the group was straight Grinch like, as if the Grinch has stolen not only their gifts but there marbles as well). Looks like Santa stepped it up a notch this year by adding some tinsel and decorations to the tree! And shimmering below, were some presents all aglow.
Huggy got first crack at opening a gift, only to reveal —Thang 1 was inside:
“Taboo Tannenbaum” (courtesy of Ragdoll)
Partner up on the soccer field at the first light post. PAX 1 drags PAX 2 supporting under the arms via politician style. At halfway point, stop and everyone does 50 reps of squats (touch the ground each time). Switch and finish out the length of the field. At end everyone does 50 Iron Mikes (each side is one thank the Lord!). Repeat going back to the start but with jump squats in the middle. Legs…Toast. Back to the giving tree.
TV guide selected a second box to unwrap, finding Thang 2 inside:
“Tabat – YEAH!” (courtesy of CheezWhiz)
You know it, and you love it! But this time to some crazy Christmas tunes – 2 rounds (Mosey over to playground )
Round 1 – Pull ups/under dogs
Round 2 – V ups
Mosey back to the giving tree.
SexEd got his choice of the remaining 2 presents. Inside, to no one’s surprise, was Thang 3:
“The Twelve Days of Christmas!” (courtesy of YHC)
We had such a great time seeing what our true love gave to us last year, that I invited her along again this year. And again, she must have been in a bad mood after not being able to find a parking spot at the mall for 30 minutes only to be cut off by someone taking the one she finally found and waited on patiently while the prior occupant stowed their packages in the trunk and then casually talked on the phone while fixing her hair before finally putting it in reverse and backing out. Seriously, don’t expect much good from your girl at Christmas time if she isn’t in the mood. Sooo, these gifts were the best she could come up with. We did the exercises just like you would have sang the song – yep with all the repeats.
1. 40 yd dash! , 2. knee tucks, 3. Yurpees (audible to Burpees after 3 rounds), 4. Iron Mikes, 5. Peter Parkers, 6. Flutter Kicks, 7. Hello Dollies, 8. American Hammers, 9. Alabama Prom Dates, 10. Merkins, 11. Lunges, 12. Squat Jumps
Creeper got the pleasure of opening the last present and found Thang 4:
“Reindeer Wrastlin’ ” (courtesy of KermiT)
There is no greater way for Reindeer to keep themselves in shape than to do a little wrastlin! And we all know they can get a little complacent after a year of leisure building up to the one day that they have to work so hard to accomplish the impossible task on Christmas Eve. So Partner up and get ya a little Reindeer Crawl Suicides! 10, 20, 30, and 40 yd markers. Partner resist one way and then switch for the way back. Let’s get it going cause you only have 5 minutes!
Mosey back to the vehicles
CoT: numbers/names/prayer/announcements to close
