Back with the Marines!

HURRY UP AND WAIT... Less than a week since I checked in and I'm headed out to what's said to be the largest multi national force training in the past three decades. Integrated Training Exercise (ITX) and Marine Warfare Exercise (MWX). Back then it was CAACs, Mojave Viper... so many acronyms, yet the mission remains the same. Train and stay ready for the upcoming fight.  It’s past 0300, still waiting to leave... gotta love the timeline when you’re with the Marines.Not gonna lie, excited but nervous at the same time.

24 hour HERO WOD

When you give it your all, you leave no room for regrets. In honor of those we lost, to those whose names we remember with these workouts, we will never forget. This past weekend, my gym held a 24 Hour Hero WOD with $1 minimum donation to complete one workout.
