Nine HIM showed up in the gloom to post and pay tribute to all of the people impacted by the events of 09/11/2001. Two mosey lines were formed throughout the workout to pay respect to the twin towers. Exercises were done in single counts of 9 then 11.
Moseyed over to the far parking lot to by the entrance to warm up:
1. 9 & 11 single count side straddle hops
2. 9 & 11 single count wind mills
3. 9 & 11 single count squats
4. 9 & 11 single count hillbilly walkers
5. 9 & 11 single count donkey kicks
6. 9 & 11 single count dancing bears
Moseyed off the school grounds to a parking lot up the hill.
1. 9 & 11 single count big boy sit ups in pairs.
2. Bear crawled across the parking lot
3. Curb planked our way back
4. Lunges across the parking lot
5. Bear crawled back
Moseyed further up the hill to see four cones setup for a workout called “Field of Dreams”. Mentioned what is more American than baseball, and Long Shanks responded football (I think I have to agree with that).
Field of Dreams – Split up into two groups. One person ran from cone to cone while the rest of the group uniformly did the same exercise. When everyone in the group had their turn at running, the exercise was switched.
– 1st Base – Burpees
– 2nd Base – Flutters
– 3rd Base – Squats
– Home Plate – Side Straddle Hops
Brought everyone in to talk about the events of 9-11.
– I think it is safe to say that all of us remember exactly where we were that morning. What we were doing. Who we were with. My own personal experience with 9-11 was taking one of the last path trains into the towers after the first plane struck the building. As myself and thousands of other people were running out of the building, one of the things that I will never forget is witnessing all of the first responders running in (fireman, policeman, EMT). What kind of courage and sacrifice that must have taken. I challenged everyone to pay that sacrifice forward in their own lives.
Moseyed back down the hill back towards the Colosseum. We stopped at the bottom of the hill and spoke about that day in more detail.
Moseyed further up the hill towards the school for some more burpees (it is September).
– 9 big boy sit ups
– 9 burpees
– 11 big boy sit ups

Moseyed over to the wall
– 9 count around the horn for some wall sits

Moseyed back to COT for some prayers and praises.
