Clash of the Titans…

THE SCENE: Dark and Cold, but not too cold.
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
WARM-O-RAMA:

THA-THANG:
We recounted the 1981 classic movie, Clash of the Titans.  Perseus was charged with saving his beloved Andromeda from the Kraken.  First he had to trick the Gorgon sisters by stealing their eye, using his shield as a mirror to see Medusa and cutting off her head.  He used the snake filled head of Medusa to turn the Kraken to stone.

So…we started on our journey on the Powell Greenway with a Route 66.  On the way we encountered our own Gorgon adventure in the form of 9 cards of a Memory Work Out game consisting of Squats, Hand Release Merkins, LBCs, Mtn Climbers, and Burpees.  After we conquered this, we continued on the Route 66.

Our next challenge was thrust upon us when we found a dry erase board and a half deck of cards.  Hearts were burpees, Clubs were Shoulder Taps, Diamonds were Merkins, and Spades were Reverse Lunges.  We filled cards and did the # of reps that were found on the card.

After we passed this challenge, we moseyed back to the AO as time ran out on us….the Kraken will have to be defeated another day….

Temptation…it gets to all of us.  Key is to try to not not focus on the temptation…that only makes your brain think about it more. Rather, you should replace the temptation with a positive thought.  Temptation can drive your emotion, which drives your thoughts, which drives your actions, which determine who you are.
