For today's WOD we will remember those lost on 9-11-01. Firemen, police, first responders, and many others who were not in the Towers at the time of the attack subsequently lost their lives while trying to save others inside the buildings. MAJ Sam Linn organized an event last year to remember those first responders and here is what he had to say: "I am honoring the brave men of 9/11 by remembering one of their most important lessons- they were ready to meet the calling of the day. Like anyone on the front lines of life, the first responders didn't just wake up on 11 September and have the fortitude and heart to run up hundreds of flights of stairs, carry and help thousands to safety, and fight terrorists for control of an airplane. They were ready...and we can honor them by doing the same."
The challenge consists of a 2,730 fo
ot rope climb, to represent climbing the twin towers (1362 and 1368 feet, respectively). For our 15 foot ropes that is 182 rope climbs! MAJ Linn did this challenge by himself last year. Check out this amazing video.At 0530 we will meet in Hayes Gym of Arvin, do a brief warm-up and then split into teams. As a team we will do 182 rope climbs (or however many you can complete prior to having to take off).
Uniform: ACUs with boots. The boots and pants WILL save your legs. Bring gloves, tape, or chalk if needed.
Post team member names and time to complete 182 rope climbs to comments.
