Prayers up for NnE's Stephen Ministry, for Peyton's mother who's recovering from knee surgery, for safe travels for our guests and for our PAX who may be ailing and/or MIA.
AAR: Another one that proved tougher than it looked on paper. I really liked the concept of deconstructing and then reconstructing burpees, and wished we'd had more time to complete each of the parts as a Route 66… it would have been wonderfully brutal. Will try this one again, maybe shortening WARMARAMA to either a lap or warmup exercises (but not both), or skipping MARY or doing on a Saturday when we have the full hour.
