11 PAX posted in the gloom and quickly realized that someone left the humidifier on over night. Little did they know that this would make this morning’s beat down just a little more challenging.

One of the latest chatter amongst the PAX is participating in a Murph challenge on Memorial Day. So today was going to be our third practice run. PAX were to begin the Murph, and see how far they could go, within the allotted time. The Murph Challenge goes as follows:

1 mile run (3 laps around library and park)

100 pull-ups

200 Merkins

300 squats

1 mile run

Those who could not run due to injuries performed the Murph exercises plus core exercises. Congratulations to Jumanji and Drone who finished the challenge within the allotted time.   Salute to OTC who took on the challenge with the Tribute vest.


Humidity really did present a challenge to today’s beat down, but the PAX pushed each other to get through it and get better. Just like when life throw’s us a challenge, we relied on our brothers to help get through it.

Prayers go out to Bing’s wife for career opportunity, to Bing for battling addiction, and Big Bird for work-related concerns. Prayers also going to LIFO’s family as his wife’s mother was admitted to the hospital.
