The Thang

Jacob’s Ladder
The routine involves the Pax doing one exercise proceeded by a nice long mosey.  Upon returning to the starting point the Pax does two of the same exercise followed by another nice long mosey.  This continues until the Pax has completed five of the same exercise with a helluva lot of running in between each rep.  Once five reps of one exercise is completed the Pax moves to another exercise. The exercises performed:
Squat Jumps

  On June 6, 2019, 97-year-old former Army Airborne Paratrooper Tom Rice repeated what he had done as a 22-year-old man, he jumped out of a perfectly good airplane over the beaches of Normandy, France.  Tom commented that the one big difference between last weeks jump and the one he performed on the Day of Days was he wasn’t being shot at.  Tom is more of bad-ass then most of us could ever hope to be.  In addition to Tom being a young 97, this former member of the 101st Airborne Division recently had a knee replacement.  When asked about his recent surgery Tom commented that his knee was sore but “we’ll just not think about it”.  The next time your body is saying that you can’t take anything else, you’re too tired,  or you’re too old to post, ruck, or do something completely stupid and utterly pointless, think about Tom Rice, suck it up, and get it done.

BALL OF MAN: Prayers for Pax members who are traveling.


Not much smack talk this morning, just a lot of sweat angels left on the Greenway.
