Several newbies getting their rucks adjusted before it’s time to set off.


-Goal is to get in 4 miles during the next hour.
-And do 100 burpees (as a group) along the way.
-And…let’s grab these sandbags and carry them, too.


-We got in 3 miles total.
-We finished the 100 burpees as a group.
-No sandbags were harmed during the hour.

Quote of the day:

“I never thought I’d rather do burpees over walking with a backpack.”

Deep Thoughts toward the end of our ruck:

Like our rucking today, life is a journey.

Most of the time we are carrying heavy burdens along the way.

Sometimes we carry additional burdens for a time, drop those, and pick up new ones.

We may not always be going at the pace that we want or that we thought we could go, but we keep moving forward.

And most important of all: enjoy the journey.
