10 PAX braved the sub-Church temperatures in search sugar plums and the swirlly twirlly forest of gumdrops, but found a beatdown instead. We’ve got a lot of work to do in the mailroom, so let’s get this started.

DIE HARD 3
Considered by some to be the most Christmasy of all the Die Hard movies, John and Zeus must detonate a bomb by accurately measuring 4 gallons of water using ONLY a 5 gallon container and a 3 gallon container. How is it done?

PAX must solve this riddle while completing the last round. This workout ends when (and if) the riddle is solved. If not solved by the end of the round…20 burpees. Flo successfully detonated the burpee bomb with only a few merkins left.

Circle up for the count off and Name-O-Rama. No announcements or prayers because YHC forgot. But, as promised, the PAX were treated to a holiday treat that brightened even PeekABoos burpee muscles. This workout was sponsored by Six & Twenty Distillery’s Carolina Cream and made popular by Flo at the Course Corrected Bourbon Night. It is known as the MIL Night Cap at my house.

CHEERS TO 2022

Always a pleasure, See you tmmr at Course Corrected…Im talking to you Red Ryder.
