Everyone grabbed a block and headed to the trail for as many rounds as possible of the following:
- 20 Burpees
- 20 V Ups
- 20 Squats with a Block
- .4 mile Run
The first round was on Q and after that everything was OYO. That said, PAX usually stick with some buddies and everyone is working out near each other.
Great job to all who did their best and bettered themselves! Congratulations to Futurama for completing 7 rounds (maybe even an AO record).
Mary: Unfortunately, we ran out of time.

Announcements: Freedom Church is in the planning phase of the Fall Men’s Hike and all are encouraged to attend. Stringbean recognized our AOQ Redo for his help during the recent HTL Go Ruck event.
The well trained soldier during war time is fastidious about training, obeying the rules and not taking shortcuts, because he knows after 8 weeks of basic training his life depends on it. He knows that training practice ends and the real game is about to begin. He is super focused and purposed in all he thinks and in all his actions. There is no room for him outside the boundaries.
The athlete, Paul says, cannot bend the rules to his liking and still expect to win. He can’t take a shortcut to get a head start on the competition or adjust things according to his comfort level. He has to compete fairly, respect the boundaries, and run hard just like everybody else for a shot at the prize. The point is, the contest is bigger than any individual athlete. An athlete’s primary quality is his respect for the rules. And when he wins legitimately, he has integrity. So he trains right, competes right, and when it’s showtime, he focuses on the victor’s crown. He dreams of being on that podium, receiving the prize for his hard work and dedication.
Now a farmer, Paul says, has to be super diligent in his season of work. He keeps showing up morning after morning, laying those hands to the plow. He doesn’t sleep in, and works late when it’s time to sow and cultivate. He endures the early wake up calls, the aching hands, the smells of fertilizer, and the sore legs from walking up and down his fields. He is diligent and determined during the critical time that makes the difference between a good harvest and a bad one. The promise of the harvest spurs him on. He doesn’t sow sparingly because he knows the result.
Moleskin: This was YHC first time to Q the Swamp Fox and I take pride in this as I usually enjoy this suck of the challenge.
We welcomed Ed Bender as an FNG by way of his older brother Futurama. Ed introduced himself as Futurama’s younger brother. He almost became “BJ” (Bobby Junior) but his older brother indicated that he enjoyed “Manscaping” by way of manicures and he then became known as Metro.
