Santa has arrived at First Watch!


Santa Claus, with a freshly trimmed mustache (less beard), and five of his nine tiny reindeer, took the sleigh for a ride around River Road Hills. 5am and the rain hit at the same time which meant “Let’s Mosey!”

Mosey to the front of the church for:


Dead-Man Hang (take it easy, Splinter!), Reach for the rain clouds, DQ’s, Helicopters, (Eye)ranian Soldiers, Inverted Scorpion Kicks, Suzanne Somers Left, Heels to Heaven, Suzanne Somers Right.

Let’s Mosey!
Stop off at Gaymont and River for:

Traveling Lindsays:

Carolina Dry Docks and LBC’s

Stop at Gaymont and University and begin:

Traveling 11’s:

Merkins and Box Cutters

Stop in front of YHC’s decorated and lit house for a:

Triple Check:

Bench Press with the Big Bertha Blocks, Curls with the smaller blocks, timer runs up to Rose Hill and Ralston and back. Three rounds, of course.

Staying in front of YHC’s house, partner up with each partner completing 2 rounds of 15 PROPER PLT’S! (Throw legs to the left, center, right and repeat)

Staying with same partner, complete 10 Boo-Yah Merkins

Travel back to the Shovel Flag via Ralston and River stopping several times for Squats, Jump Squats and Lt. Dans.

Back at Shovel Flag, circle up and complete a Burpee Shuffle


Numbers, Names, Announcements and YHC took us out!

Announcements (See Slack, obviously)


SZN of GVN has begun at First Watch! Those who know, know! YHC foresees Miatas and Kidneys as future gifts to the pax. Light numbers this morning only meant more goodies for the ones who posted.

Ronnie never got his back wet, somehow, and Handshake wonders if YHC ever really works 🙂

In a couple weeks, be on the lookout for Santa in a Miata.

YHC enjoys kicking off the SZN of GVN for the second or third(?) year in a row! Spreading Christmas cheer has always been a favorite of YHC’s, ever since a little boy. This is definitely the best time of the year, but let’s be mindful of those who have a lot of stress or bad memories/lost loved ones during this season.

Way to work this morning, fellas!
