The Thang

-The pax walked to the base of the hill with the coupons over the head.  When one pax could no longer hold up the coupon, everyone would stop and do a burpee and then resume carrying the coupon.  The next time a pax had to sit down the coupon, everyone had to add an additional burpee and thus do 2 burpees and so forth.

-When the pax got to the the base of the hill everyone left their coupons there and went for a run along the trails.  We had a frisbee with us, so we played catch with the frisbee as we ran.  Along the way we stopped periodically to do big boy situps.  At the first stop we did 10 big boy situps, and every stop after that we added 5.  On the last stop back at the base of the hill we did 35 big boy situps.

-Back at the base of the hill we picked up our coupons and did the same thing going back to the AO as we had done to get from the AO to the base of the hill.

-Back at the AO we finished with 50 big boy situps.
