The Pax got down and dirty at SPEARHEAD! Halfway through the routine, Q got all AL Bundy on the Pax and in a scene reminiscent of old high school football glory days, zeroed in on the 5 man sled. Somehow I don’t remember it being that hard in high school and props to Bob The Builder, who looked over and jokingly said “I might puke” (guess when we played ball, the football gear was a lot lighter than a ruck sack). The team gutted out the pain and pushed that sled up and down the football field. Good thing there wasn’t a resource officer there because after looking at the path made in the dew, you would have thought we’d been up all night drinking…wasn’t quite straight.

Outstanding effort all around from the group. Being a small group doesn’t allow us any room to hide or cheat reps and I was impressed! We had a newbie to the GR training, Gullah, who didn’t disappoint. He crushed it out there like an old pro while wearing a 30-35lb vest and didn’t miss a beat. For a moment, he looked like John Rambo during the Tunnel of Love as grass and mud covered his arms and legs.
Nice to see Big League Chew, Culkin and BTB out there as they were some of the 707, so needless-to-say I had a lot of living up to do being Q. Those guys took a massive beat down 3 weeks ago and if you were in the 707, T-Claps all around.
Shot out to Culkin, who was sprinting with a 55lb KB almost leaving the Pax behind in the Indian run, and Sweetness for engineering up a modified Ruck Sack that could have passed inspection from a cadre.
Nice work gentleman and a pleasure getting to lead the routine today. As always, SPEARHEAD isn’t just geared for GORUCK people. It is an intense F3 style routine with a Ruck Sack thrown in and a few Ruck specific workouts to help prepare our brave F3’ers for an upcoming GORUCK challenge.
