The BackBlast:

YHC arrived early to get a feel for this AO – it was my first visit and although I’ve been here many times for kid-sporting events, I arrived early to scout from a different perspective and get my blood pumping.

Then Four met In The Gloom … well, as the sun was rising for a Kodak beatdown. Attendance was low (another AO cancelled) due to first day of school for the local elementary district, but the accelerating men at the Tundra showed up and boy, did they ever show up!

Then one pax gave some real+honest gratitude for the men that surrounded him through a recent tough event and YHC picked up that this was the best message that needed to be heard this morning. It’s been amazing how the walls and barriers come down after guys start working and struggling through something difficult together. That’s the whole point of this group because there isn’t anything someone is going through that another man hasn’t experienced. We can all support each other and build that trust whether it’s through a :45 bootcamp or a multi-hour CSAUP. Let’s keep accelerating!
