COT: Remembrances of Greg Alia from TNT
– What an emotional, and powerful morning. YHC may have left out some reps or stops we had along the way in the backblast, but in terms of the workout this thing was full-go out the gate and the Hammer Pax gave a tremendous effort throughout. We covered at least 3 miles with pain stations along the way, and the running pace in between was fast.
– Many thanks to Turtle for prompting us to do something special this morning with so much on hearts and minds for the tragic killing of a local police officer in the line of duty, and for his wife and young son who are now left behind.
– Thanks to Chaser and Misfire who stayed with and motivated some of our newer guys to finish the workout, and finish strong. Great work men.
– Thanks to WOLO ABC 25 for coming out and adding significance to our effort to honor Greg and his family. A cameraman followed the Pax’s every move on camera by car, and gave Turtle the opportunity to speak on our behalf afterward. Look out for coverage tonight on ABC.
