In the 4th installment of the franchise, and the first to take place on the 4th of July and not during the Christmas season, some terrorist group creates chaos by messing with communications, transportation and electricity. I tried to prepare our group of nine for those circumstances. We moseyed to the front of the school for some warmups on SSH, IW, DQ, Merkins, Plank Jacks and LBCs. We then went around the fence at the bus loop and took on the hill between schools. Like the movie (and life), this hill has its ups and downs. We did 11’s of…

11 West End Gentlemen and 2 Southsiders set off after decisions were made by the Q and others to forego the gloves. An uneven prime number threw off plans for triple checks or Dora.

Nine movie fans were super happy to take part in another Die Hard morning at Heartbreak. We started with a review of Die Hard and Die Hard 2.
