The Thang:
Each PAX carried her own variety of weight (a water bottle, a 6-month-preg-belly, 15 lbs, and 25 lbs) on a 2.16 mile ruck around downtown JC.  We stopped at King Commons and Girls Inc for exercises as listed below before heading back to our Founders home base to stretch and cool down. All exercise reps were taken on in teams of two in an attempt to complete in time.

WTC =2016 lives        2.16 mile ruck

140 Walking lunges
(Flights 11 and 175 hit the 80th and 60th floors of the towers; 140 floors combined.)
(We got back too late to finish our no surrenders at home base.)

The Skinny:
We lost so many excellent people, 20 years ago. We were all affected in unique ways, but loss often leaves me seeking excellence. Today was a good chance to reflect on losses and rejoice in the extraordinary humans in my life, today. Continue being excellent!
