44 degrees, felt like 39 degrees. Of course, the “feels like” gauge could vary depending on layers. Foggy. Slightly frozen fogginess. Everything had a nice dampness to it while at the same time the air felt cool and crispy dry.

The Thang

For Christmas, YHC received a cube with a variety of exercises on it. Today, the Pax would roll, kick, toss etc.. to another Pax. Whatever the magic cube decided, well at least at the beginning, is the exercise the Pax completed. Exercises were completed the “hard way” and any Pax with Q experience led chosen exercise in cadence.

I assured anyone reading this; that, I am well aware this whole cube routine could appear to be a lazy way to plan a workout, but I assure you thought was put into it. The whole purpose of the cube portion of the workout was put there to lead into the COT.

The Pax, as long as they didn’t cheat, had zero idea what exercise would land on them. They did not know what kind of “bearer of bad news” they would have to be. They especially did not know, in the beginning, they would have to lead certain exercises in cadence.
Why this cube? The cube is random. It comes flying from an unknown direction with unknown consequences. The Pax had to adapt and lead.
Isn’t that a metaphor for life. Things come from all directions. We do not know what may arrive from that unknown direction, nor what will be asked of us.
We are left, then, with bowing up our chest, placing God’s armor upon us, and facing the unknown with courage. Our families, friends, brothers, and Nation needs us more than ever to do this.


U-Turn left at 5:18. She Shed reminded us that U-Turn did this so he could….make a U-Turn. Thankfully, on his return, he brought the flag.
Burpees — still not popular


Tuff Muff CSAUP coming in February (I think)…
