The BackBlast:

A beautiful morning at Adventure Park.  A good time to remember what this day was all about.

At promptly 7:00 a.m., Ripken started with the 5CP and sent the Pax off on a mozy.  His foot is ailing so he met them at the playground.

We did 4-5 warm-up exercises in cadence and Jimmy Dean led us through some bad back stretches.  Good for the soul and the back.  We then joined in a Switzer.  During the standup announcements, the workout was announced and then we started with the Star Spangled Banner.

Each Pax did the Murph OYO (Run a mile, 100 pull ups, 200 Merkins, 300 squats and run another mile).  Many modified, but worked through it.  Several guys picked up the six.

At the end, we again formed a Switzer to which several announced fallen friends and family members.  We played Taps and held a moment of silence in their honor.

Announcements for Beach Day 6/18, VMA volunteer days in June led by Brutus, Pack meals for starving kids with Wilson TBD, Wildpax Nov 17-19 and signups for Ragnar Dec 1-3.  There will be a rucking team lead by Mr. Clean and a running team led by Fireball.

Praises for Bing’s procedure, Sugar’s house, Hammerhead no surgery.  Prayers for Drake’s friend with breast cancer, Olympus’ world wide trip, Ripken’s foot, and other’s not remembered.

Thanks again to those that gave all.  You are gone, but not forgotten.

Ripken out!
