Intro:

Four brave PAX showed up to the final abduction of February 2021 ready for a brisk EC ruck happy to have the sun up for a change.  Go Blue!, Bunsen, and YHC received the pleasant surprise of Short Circuit pulling out his 60lb sand bag for us to take turns carrying in pairs.*  As we rolled in to the Shovel Flag we greeting the assembled PAX, circled up for the Mission and Disclaimer then went to work…

Naked Man Moleskin:

* Each time I handed that sandbag off the arm I was carrying it with had lost all feeling…

** There was a mutiny among the PAX who couldn’t handle army crawling the distance of the field

*** This looked a lot better on paper…YHC called an audible and canceled the third army crawl

**** Really proud of everyone, this was a hard workout but all men were quick to pick up the six at each stage of The Thang, great work by all

Great morning, really enjoyed and needed the fellowship after the beatdown.  It truly was a privilege’s to lead such a great group of HIMS.
