9 Pax posted at the Kohl’s parking lot with I believe 7 having done the Bear less than 48 hrs prior. The reason? To get better, and to honor one of the most significant events in history, D-Day 6-6/1944
Run to El Dorado
However you choose to do it
6 Rounds of 60 Reps (25 Merkins, 25 WW2 Situps and 10 Burpees)
1944 steps which is 19 full trips up Stairway to Heaven plus 31 additional steps
at 6:07 Run Back to Parking lot
– @Gnarly Goat led the #Chippendale charge departing sans shirt by the end the count was at 4
– I believe there were a few who completed the full count but special recognition who put in OT complete all reps, inspiring.
– As I said, I knew this would be very challenging, wouldn’t have it any other way to pay tribute to the beyond Giants who looked death in the face and said told it to step aside. The threat was very real, but those brave men rose to the occasion.
– Everyone know @Primetime he cannot be ignored, he insists he is not a runner, we all know this to be a lie. But in case he doesn’t believe that anyone can be a strong runner there are 3 Pax who were there today who have radically changed their running performance. @Kato @Colonel Mustard and @Gordo you 3 men have worked hard to become strong runners and now you are true forces to be reckoned with
-Special thanks to our Isotope brothers who made the trip, it is now way easier with 485, if you can figure out the signs.
Here is the letter General Eisenhower sent troops before the offensive
Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely. But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory! I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking. SIGNED: Dwight D. Eisenhower
