When partners complete lap around school and reach the start line, PAX will pair up with a new partner for the next lap. PAX should never make two laps in a row with the same partner. PAX AMRAP curls with coupon if waiting on a new partner.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:13

Yesterday was the 5th anniversary of the terrorist attack on Chattanooga that claimed the lives of 1 Navy sailor and 4 Marines of mine and Nordictrack’s old unit: Mike Battery. There were many memories and tributes yesterday but what I choose to remember about that horrible day is that all five of those men died either shielding others (including civilians in the park) from the terrorist or actively engaging the terrorist with a large firepower disadvantage. All five gave their lives for other Marines and sailors, for other community members, for other humans.

The ultimate sacrifice made by those five men showed true courage and selflessness. Ultimate examples of what it means to Live Third.

Blindside closed us out by leading us in prayer.


No playlist today as we were doing laps around the school.

FNG-Pork Chop is Hambone’s 2.0. We had him questioning our sanity by 0545.

Burrito. That’s it. That’s the comment.

Backfire’s work van has a backup beeper that I bet you could have heard from #Parliament. It’s hilariously loud.

We actually got NordicTrack to go to Hardee’s for coffeeteria! It was a Festivus Miracle!


Daddurday/2.0 Day at #The-Battery canceled–there will be a normal workout there on 7/25 instead.

2.0 Day at #Landfill still on for 7/25
