Remembering our Hero’s

Since we were one day before September 11th, I thought we could remember that day and the hero’s that made the ultimate sacrifice to save others.
Weather was a humid 70 degrees.
5 Men showed up to get better. We started with our prayer, then mosied to the soccer field.
We circled up and did the following in cadence.
25 ssh
10 windmills
15 ttt
20 little baby arm circles
We then ran a lap on the sidewalk around the main fields.

The 9/11attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.
To remember the 2,996 who died we did:
2 pendulum legs, 9 squats, 9 two count mountain climbers, 6 plank saws. Plank for the 6

Run a lap

9/11 is the single deadliest terrorist attack in human history and the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed, respectively.
To remember the hero’s we did:
3 burpees, 4 Carolina dry docks, 3 burpees, then 72 overhead claps

Run a lap
Next was a couple of exercises to simulate what the firefighters might have done to save those in need. There were two lines on the soccer field. We all lined up on the first line. All pax started with BBSUPS except the “firefighter” who had to drag all the pax to the other line. Once in their “safe place” the rescued pax planked until the rest of their friends were “saved”. We rotated this until all pax did their firefighter duties.
When the next firefighter started the exercise changed to the following:
American hammer
Flutter kicks
Hello dolly
Iron cross’
Boat canoe

Run a lap

For the last simulation, all Pax lined up on the sideline and we practiced our low crawl to avoid smoke inhalation by crawling under the tunnel of love. This lasted until we crawled the length of the field.

One last lap to finish at the shed.
For the last minute, we all did 10 straight leg bicycle leg raises on our 6.
Unspoken prayers
