US History Lesson at Crypt

11 Pax joined YHC in the gloom of Crypt for a US History lesson that included a little religion as well. Mumblechatter was non-existent. YHC isn’t sure if that is because the PAX were trying to catch their breath or keep up with the History lesson.

The Thang:

Run up and down parking lot rows. Stop at the end of each row and complete the following:

  1. SSH x 13 IC
  2. Baby Arm Circles x 13 IC
  3. Windmill x 13 IC
  4. Plank Jacks x 13 IC
  5. Squats x 13 IC
  6. Merkins x 11 IC

The 6 stops represent the number of white stripes on the American Flag. The number 13 represents the 13 original colonies. The number 11 represents Veteran’s Day, which is the 11th day of the 11th month. The total reps were 76, which represents the year 1776 – the year of Independence.

The 5 rotations were completed for the 5 branches of the military – Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, & Marines. The reps totaled 100, which represents the 100 U.S. Senators
