Holy cow. Ok, wasn’t sure how this launch would go, but I was NOT expecting 19 PAX at our first beatdown! These ladies showed up and worked!! And had so much fun along the way!!

So, today is Popular Delusions Day. Which actually is about some psych book written in the 1800s, but it gave me a fun idea. That turned into our THANG.

First, to knock off a Bingo Box, we started out with a Deck of Death warmup. Total exercises for warmup were 42 Crunches (Hearts), 47 Squats (Spades), 25 Jumping Jacks (Clubs), and 40 Merkins (Diamonds). Then a quick lap so everyone could see the route at The River (up the stairs, around the snack shack, down the ramp, and back).


We got DELUSIONAL. Each PAX was given two cards. On one side was a “popular delusion”. On the other side was an exercise. Each person would read a card and then everyone would do the exercise. Every 3rd person, we would run a lap.

The workout got us 1.7 miles and the following Delusions and Reps:
