Before I get to that, I want to share a picture from the WOD for Warriors that was held on November 11th at my gym. A group of us gathered for a special workout in honor of our veterans. I dressed patriotically for the occasion.
Can you find me?? I'm on the left, in the red top, white headband, blue capris, and blue shoes. I love the awesome people I workout with!
Ok, moving on to the Thanksgiving Throwdown.
We were told to wear our favorite NFL team shirt, so I wore a Steelers shirt, and the boyfriend wore a Falcons shirt. We're both disappointed in our teams this season, but we're true fans! When we got there, we had to pick bandanas out of a bag to form the teams. The boyfriend and I ended up on different teams again, which is probably a good thing!
We had to do several different events, and points were being kept by the gym staff as we went along.
Here's some of the fun:
We all had to take turns carrying the tire all the way around the track. I had to do it too, but they happened to catch me cheering my team on instead. I swear I did more than just clap! :)
We had to push this thing BOTH WAYS across the football field. Did I forget to mention there were 2 45 pound plates on it as well? The contraption is heavy enough on its own, but they added an additional 90 pounds to it. This almost did me in, for real. My partner and I were ok making it to the end of the football field, but it was really tough making our way back across it again.
Side note: Not a big fan of how my hanging shirt makes it look like I have a huge gut. It's gravity, ok?! :)
There were several more events, but those are the only ones I found with pictures of me in them. I'm who you're here to see, right?! Honestly, I had already saved the pictures with me in them, and I'm too lazy to go back and find all the others. :)
The whole thing was very challenging, but it was a lot of fun!
Here's a group shot of all of us once it was over.
And who is that you notice on the bottom right of the group shot?? Why yes, that is the boyfriend with his prize!
Each team had to pick a single team member to toss a 30 pound medicine ball, and whoever threw it the farthest won the "Best Turkey Tosser" award.
He was so excited, and I was so proud of him!
I love when he joins me in this stuff! We both had a lot of fun, and it was an awesome workout.
