Halloween Throwdown

The games ran
With teams from rival boxes
Posturing at first
Young ink representing one
Older wrinkles the other
The contrasts were great
But
As the reps added up
As the jump rope lashes tallied misses on thighs
As the Burpees leveled the field
Appreciation
Replaced
Competing against
With a shared purpose
To compete with each other
Bringing out the best in the athletes
While watching the spirits
Of those enduring the wod.
The final round allowed for announcements of rank
Top competitors representing both sides
Pound for pound the event measured up
Nearly equal
Leaving wins for all
