Save the date
This is what I am swimming in for the tri .. it’s only 1/4 mile but wet cammie pants are really freaking heavy. All geared up for the run back home.. The run for the tri is only 3 miles , this is what I am doing it in ‘cept with boots (which I had to take a little break from due to blisters … but still ran the 1/2 mile there and back And, yes, I found a swimsuit with blood stripes and, no, I haven’t mastered that “Marine” face yet (I tried in the last one but just can’t get it ) .. but a few more days of running in these freakin BDU’s in 90 degree weather …and I may just get it
Save the date Aug 2nd 0730 Ft Desoto , St Petersburg, Fl (but I will be finishing around 9:15 ish ).. and spread the word .. I am trying to round up as many Marines, Past, Present and Future as I can to come out , represent and provide some moto for that last 3 miles in 20 pounds of gear. Please spread the word to any recruiters, Marines and former Marines who you might know _ Thanks . I will have put in over 100 hours of training for this, gone through countless blisters and left quite a bunch of puke on the sand training for this bad boy… To honor our Marines (past and present), all of their sacrifices and all that You/they stand for … to raise awareness and.. hopefully a little bit of money.
I will be doing the 1/4 mile swim in cammies, the 10 mile bike ride in either a 30 pound ruck or an MTV (if I can find one )and my 12 pound ruck & boots and, the final 3 mile run in BDU’s, boots, helmet & 12 pound ruck. Compared to what our Heroes endure every day, this is really nothing but it’s all this 40 year old civilian pansy can manage in between sending out 60 – 80 boxes a month to our heroes forward deployed
