PAX: Kay, Crankbait, Sprinkler, Blue Hen, Kaepernick, Dr. Evil, Fortran, Crawdaddy, Gilmore, Sludge, Epstein, Lucky Charm, Checkbook, FloRida, Doubtfire Kryptonite (Q)
15-and-a-half Pax gathered on a chilly but comfortable winter morning to experience a little Christmas with Kryptonite with the intent on providing a bit of pain in the park. Following a bit of verbal badgering, the Q led the PAX on a very short mosey to the basketball court to get things warmed up.

A mosey then ensued as we made our way to parking lot and hillside behind the school for the next round.
2. Kryptonite Christmas Travel (partners)
  • Round 1: Bear Crawl/Hills (P1 bear crawl to far edge of parking lot and back while P2 ran the hill); 1X each then continue running hills until Pax complete

We then all made our way back to the basketball court. The Pax were elated to know that we still had one further event before Mary.

Following the fun, we circled up for Mary.
