Sometimes I’ll search for “this day in history” to find inspiration for some words of wisdom during the COT. Today I shared the story of PFC Milton Olive, the first African American man to receive the Medal of Honor in Vietnam.


Burrito agreed to show up and abandon his Signal Mountain Amigos if he could have the floor to tell jokes at some point during the workout. So thankful for him.

Rodeo determined that this workout isn’t his cup of tea about half way around the circle of burpee broad jumps

Our first FNG works for the CDC and got named Wuhan. The other, Crystal, once got stopped in the airport by security because some salt in his luggage was mistaken for crystal meth. Both pretty good ones.

Iron Butt describes my kind of workouts as meat and potatoes. Basic and simple. I like it.
