The Thang

The Manion: named after First Lt Travis Manion, USMC, 26, who died on April 29, 2007, while conducitn combat operations in Al Anbar province, Iraq.  Lt. Manion twice exposed himself to the kill zone while under fire to rescue wounded soldiers.  A true HIM whom we remembered by performing:

  • 29 weighted squats
  • 400-meter run
  • 7 rounds

The pax were elated to hear that they completed the WOD before the end of the allotted time.  They weren’t so happy to hear that YHC did have a contingency plan.

  • Flutter kicks x20 IC
  • Guantanamo Bay


Awesome work by the pax today in crushing the Manion.  YHC spoke of being thankful for the men who served and gave the ultimate sacrifice in order that we can do what we do- be free to workout in a local park to better ourselves and in turn, service others.  We thanked and asked blessings for those that gave their lives and for their families who lost loved ones as a result of their sacrifice. 

Announcements, prayers and pledge. 

After the beatdown, the pax headed to the Memorial Wall for part 1 of the community clean-up morning. 

Thank you, men, for allowing me to lead today.
