“Teams do not go physically flat, they go mentally stale.”
I Divided the camp into teams, 3 people to a team.
Each person completes 1/4 run and begins designated exercise, contributing to the total rep count of 120 reps. for each exercise.
The team that completes the circuit first wins the round.
• Round 1: 1/4 mile trail run with – 120 t-stabilization’s and 120 inchworms.
• Round 2: 1/4 mile trail run – 120 side step lateral raise and 120 jumping lunges.
6:00-6:45am it was tie between

“If you must play, decide upon three things at the start: the rules of the game, the stakes, and the quitting time.”
– Chinese proverb
To crank up the intensity a bit I split the camp up into groups of 3. In the past we’ve done this routine with groups of 4-5.
Each team has a deck of cards; each suit has a designated exercise and must be repeated for the number shown on the card.
Each person on the team draws a card from the deck and does the exercise on their own.
It is an individual effort, but members chip away at the deck as a team.
• Diamonds = 1/4 mile Run
• Hearts = Boot Strapper
• Clubs = Hip Lifts
• Spades = Bench Dips
• Joker = 1st Joker everything is doubled 2nd Joker everthing goes back to normal count
• Ace = 11
• Face cards = 10
• Threw out the 2, 3, and 4 cards
9:30am-10:15am Camp Time17 minutes
6:00am-6:45am Camp Time 19.36
7:00am-7:45am Camp Time 17.06
Anxious Kids Ready to Run
Olivia Baker 1st Place
The Sunday October. 21st 2007 Maplewood In Motion 5k Run and Kids Fun Run is an event of the Department of Recreation and Cultural Affairs, put on with the volunteer assistance of Maplewood in Motion. The race was a huge success promoting a day of fitness and fresh air for the whole family. I had a great time helping out with the warm up and stretches for the Kids Fun Run. I want to congratulate everyone for a job well done. The big story of the day was the incredible finish of 11 year old Olivia Baker of South Orange, NJ who came in 1st place in the women’s division with a time of 21.50 and the 4th place finish in the women’s division of 11 year old Imani Coleman of South Orange, NJ with a time of 22:33.
