    We have a whole bunch of military and fire personnel at our box. Although I have no military background, I did spend 3 seasons with a red card battling just a handful of wildfires nearly 20 years ago (yep, older than I look). Here’s to thinking of you guys & gals, we love you. THANK YOU!

    A fitting memorial workout. I will push this one to the limit just like those guys did on all fires they went to.
    To give you all perspective Hot Shot crews are the elite crews of the forest service. They are front line FF’s used to stop some of the most challenging fires where prooerty and life damage may be high. On top of that these guys are one of the only crews who were stationed to a county fire department who stayed together and worked together year round. It would be equivalent to me and my whole 10 person station crew who I work with everytime having the same thing happen to us. It was a sad day in the fire service and makes us all realize how important family, friends and the things we do everyday really are.

    Sometimes in life we take for granite that the service men/ women be it the military, police, firemen, etc, will be there to serve us, to protect us. I am sorry it takes something like this to stop and really really appreciate what they do. So I say to all my family friends in the box
    I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. 🙂
    My prayers to the fallen ones and their families. It was a huge loss in so many ways. 🙁

    Just got home from doing this one. I must say, job well done coach. This is a grinder, just like working on a fire. Plus the 100 plus degrees and 3 days of broken sleep all made it hurt so bad. That’s the closest I have come to losing it in a long time.

    Noon crew you rocked it. Just to throw it down after we had finished and recovered for 5 min I talked Molly, Keith and IntenseSteve into doing 2 more rounds. If you want an extra mental challenge give it a try.

    Have fun everyone and listen to your body in this heat. Takes breaks and drink lots of water.

    What a huge loss, the ages were way too low on that list, my prayers go out to their families.

    This one looks a little scary for 4:30 but I’m in!

    And thanks to all of you military and fire people, you guys rock!
