Mosey to the back parking lot alternating butt kicks, high knees and kareoke for a little Route 66 action.  The excercise of choice was the burpee with 5 merkins while in the thrust position.  While waiting on the 6, Al Gore then mosey to next light pole (used the 9 light poles as starting positions) Sets 1 through 6 was a mosey.  From 6 to 7 and 7 to 8 lunges. Before 9 circled up as a group for a little encouragement, read the “Man in the Glass” poem by Peter Dale Wimbrow Sr. , look it up, it’s a good one.  Timer went off after 10 sets (55 burpees 275 Merkins) on to Part 2.
