Thang 1

  • Number off 1/2 and divide into 2 groups
  • Each team has 2 boxes – one at each end of field
  • Starting at one end of field (empty box), teams will jog to the opposite end and select one tile from the box (lovingly prepared by my daughters), then sprint back to the beginning.
  • On each tile is a letter, and on back is a set of exercises the team must complete together.
  • Once completed, put that tile in the team’s empty box and collectively run back down the field for the next tile.
  • Repeat until your team has collected all the tiles and completed all the exercises.
  • After the last exercise, team sprints back down the field, and brings the now-empty box back to the beginning where they can open the envelope and use the letters they’ve collected to solve the riddle contained inside.
  • First team to correctly solve the riddle wins the game.
    • Exercises:
      • 20 Burpees
      • 20 Bonnie Blairs (2 is 1)
      • 25 Mountain Climbers (2 is 1)

“I’ve always thought the sound that you make is just the tip of the iceberg, like the person that you see physically is just the tip of the iceberg as well.” ~Yo-Yo Ma

The iceberg metaphor is a little cliched perhaps, but I think it’s also an important reminder that so much of what we see of someone, especially, perhaps, of those of us here (where maybe we have a relationship built on a limited activity like working out together), is such a small part of who someone actually is. To explore the iceberg of yourself is to really look beneath the surface of your life into what hidden forces shape the way you approach the world and navigate relationships. I would challenge you to take some time to slow down enough to feel and acknowledge what’s going on inside of you so that you might be more authentic and vulnerable with those around you. Also get to know your fellow PAX on a deeper level!
