Shawshank Takes on the 10K Push Up Challenge

14 Shawshank pax conquered the F3SC GORUCK Challenge so Grave Digger felt like we needed another challenge (and another patch). He used #meanmeanstride via Twitter to challenge Shawshank (any other pax) to the 10,000 Push Up Challenge in December. That’s roughly 323 per day. YHC started tackling the challenge Monday, 12/1 and realized it takes up a lot of time so decided to knock this thing out in 1 bootcamp. 24 pax posted in the gloom this AM and, indeed, knocked it out.

#Kotters Chicken Fried & Optimus. It’s been too long.
