Stretched in the parking lot for a minute while Wuerffel parked his car. Then we headed for the track.

 

Ran to the track and started with high steps for 50 yards, then backwards run for 50 yards, butt-kicks for 50 yards, carioke for 50 yards face the other way and carioke for 50 yards, then jog on around the rest of the way and gather at the center of the field.
