The BackBlast:

Arrived at 0430…..Set out to the field with a bunch of lights, set 6 lights out at the base of the hill, and 6 more 40 yards out from the Hill…..The morning was a little chilly, but no wind, so i’d say pretty darn good for January 4th.

Once I was done setting up the area, I met 10 other PAX by the vehicles to do a 1.5 mile EC run prior to the work out.  Streets were the safest so we made our way through the neighborhood, checking out who still had their X-mas lights up.  Upon return, most other PAX had arrived and were catching up by the flags

Once 5:15am hit, I moved the PAX right away to the field to get as spread out as possible

Thank you for coming to my 40th Birthday Bash.  I apologize for using the hill, I had checked part of the hill, but failed to check all of it.  I shouldnt have used it, and I apologize for my misjudging that.  Today I turned 40, and if you would have told me on January 4th of 2020 that on my 40th birthday, I would be out in 20 degree weather, at 5:15am working out in the snow, and I wanted to do this, I would have told you that you are freakin nuts.  I would have told you that I was gonna wake up on my 40th with a hang over, because I was celebrating my last days in my 30’s.  But here I am, feeling better mentally, physically, and emotionally than I did 5, 6, 7 years ago.  I owe that to F3 and the last 6 months of busting my ass, and having you all push me to my limits.  Physically you are out here, mentally through Q-Source, and the EC Rucks/Runs, always pushing having me develop into a better person.  Sparkler the other day told me age is just a number, and it is, its a number on a piece of paper, I dont feel like I am 40, so I will drive on and get to the respect club in even better shape.  Some guys told me they had FOMO, because they were HCing else where.  I told them dont have FOMO as long as you are getting out there and getting after it, that is all that matters.

Prayer- Second Best and his family, Toby and his situation with his Pup, and all the unspoken Prayers
