A Year of Sandstorm

12 PAX w/ 1 FNG emerged in the humid gloom for a morning that called for our 6 week fitness test which meant Sandstorm was about to hit the PAX, HARD. There’s always a few (mostly those who don’t pay attention on Twitter) who are completely blindsided by the announcement that Sandstorm is getting ready to hit. Nevertheless, they fought the urge to retreat back to the car and pushed through with us.

It’s been right around a year now that Reefer and YHC began plotting the idea of unleashing Sandstorm on the PAX and safe to say that Sandstorm has been a success (whether we like it or not). Keeps us accountable to ourselves to not let us fall in a rut and be complacent, always trying to better ourselves.
