YHC prayed us out and reminded us the real meaning of the Christmas season and to continue hopeful as we approach 2021.

YHC literally arrived with bells on and a Christmas hits list for the workout.  While not up to the level of Icebox’s Christmas hits list, YHC threw in some old school soul classics along with a few Latin carols to spice things up, which included the workout theme song: Run, Run Rudolph!  With a PAX vote, we agreed to extend the workout to an hour and with that we were off.  As we rounded the turn at Hillcrest and completed the jump squats, Pepper was visited by the ghost of Christmas poo and made a bee line to 7 Eleven for his first-round matchup with Mr. Hankey.  Once at the foot of the Christmas tree, we commenced YHC’s Rudolph exercises and were nearly run over at one point.  There was random talk until YHC rolled out Little Merkin Boy, which sounded too easy with a single merkin for every pa rum pump pum pum so YHC called for two.  It sucked!  Then AlrightAlright piped up about the pretzel crunch YHC had planned equating it to an Uptown crunch, so YHC audibled to a pretzel stick, which added to the suck and will be rolled out again in the future.  At this point, Pepper went to round two with Mr. Hankey and missed the round of hurpees, so YHC and AA graciously agreed to complete another 20 with him before we all began to mosey to Burleson to catch the Second Choicers before they finished their peppermint lattes.  YHC had them join in a few extra Jingle exercises before Pepper, AA and me ran it back to La Mad with two minutes to spare!
