The BackBlast:

Four met early for an EC Ruck and were cautiously optimistic about the street conditions due to an overnight rain and slightly freezing temps. We took a detour to scout a potential workout site although YHC (your humble correspondent) was spinning wheels thinking of a modified workout in case running in the streets proved to be too treacherous. As we headed back to the AO, puddles became present as the street surface warmed up, so no changed plans …. this is a leadership value in the group = how do you adapt (if needed) when 14 other men are in your care? You have to adapt; fortunately today it was not necessary.

Weather – low 30’s. Fantastic

  • Closing comments

I know some guys are going through some personal stuffs. I know some guys are struggling with isolation (me) and I know all the guys are hit by the C19 issues that bombard and impact us on a daily basis, plus we just came out of a polar vortex and saw some pretty extreme temps … but we stuck together through that!!

“The struggle of a butterfly to emerge from its cocoon forces fluid from its body into its wings and prepares itself to fly upon exit. Just the same, the struggles in our lives strengthen us to tackle future challenges. Keep it up. This season is preparing you for something else.” says ItalianJob from F3FortMill …. we can struggle alone or we can get stronger together. I choose “b” and am grateful for the men who do the work at my side. Encourage the pax to pull along a fellow brother and get the work done side by side.
