    “Grand Tour” – The PAX moseyed between various notable locations around the AO, stopping for pain station depending on the terrain available:

    Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.

    John 14:1
    • Believe ≠ mere intellectual assent (“I believe in ghosts”).
    • Believe = TRUST = active thing built on a relationship, experience, and intentional engagement.
    • Believe in God/Jesus = TRUST in God/Jesus.


    • The original intention was to do a full round / grand tour of the AO, but YHC was informed by several PAX arriving from a different direction that the Park Ranger was already parked in preparation to preclude our perpetration of impermissible park interloping.
    • Welcome to FNG Bryan aka Market who evaded much less flattering grocery-related nicknames.
    • One PAX had some weapons-grade flatulence early on. Someone requested he “lay down some cover fire” later on in the beatdown.
    • Musket introduced a welcome reminder that many of our problems would be solved by just losing some weight.
    • Approximately 2 miles put in for Quad P.


    • The Quad P monthly challenge for February is 1 mile per day. See the link below for full details.
    • Two New AOs recently started up:
      • Boardwalk – Fridays, 6pm @ Hillier Ignite Park in VB; run/ruck focused.
      • Blackwater – Fridays, 5:30am @ Western Branch HIGH School; reruns of old Iron Pax Challenge workouts.
