It is September so the Iron Pax Challenge is upon us. Due to varying circumstances, a few of us had to make time on a non-bootcamp day to get it done. We were rewarded with much milder weather than those that completed IPC Week 0 earlier in the week.
Here’s a background of the workout. We honored his legacy:
Capoot is a regular R.E.D. Friday workout that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Background: Dedicated to officer James Lowell Capoot, of the Vallejo Police Department, who died Nov. 17, 2011, in the line of duty while chasing after an armed man suspected of robbing a bank. The 45-year-old, who lived in Vacaville, California, joined the Vallejo Police Department in 1993 and served as a motorcycle officer, motorcycle instructor, driving instructor and SWAT officer. He received two medals of courage, including one life-saving medal, as well as many other department commendations.
Capoot is survived by his wife, Jennifer; three daughters, Jillian, Jamie and Justine; mother, Beverly Sue; brother and sister-in-law, Louie and Susie DeCarlo; and several other family members. He is preceded in death by his father, Lowell Jesse Capoot.
