YHC prayed us out.

It was YHC’s 44th birthday and PAX seemed to be in high spirits (although YHC believes this to be the result of sorority rush activities rather than YHC’s planned beat down). YHC put together a greatest hits playlist from 1976, which must seem like ancient history to most of the PAX (@Sally)! We commenced birthday burpees in the parking garage.  To give the PAX a reprieve from 44 straight burpees, YHC had PAX backward run up the ramps in between sets of 11 and seeing that YHC looks forward to at least another 44 years, we did another 44 burpees back down the ramps.  However, this is where things got dicey as YHC’s wish for another 44 years almost ended before it began.  As YHC descended a ramp on a bear crawl, a late-arrival for class or rush made her acquaintance with YHC with the bumper of her car!  Fortunately, she braked and I narrowly avoided becoming her new hood ornament.  Unfortunately, YHC managed to sprain his wrist in the process so happy birthday to me!  The drama receded throughout the rest of the workout with random mumble chatter about the choice of songs in YHC’s Spirit of ’76 playlist, spattering of sleet and general dissatisfaction with the pain YHC brought today.
