“Guardian” WOD

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Iron Horse (Founders Park)

6 PAX stepped off at 0458, even Whoopi, for a pre bootcamp ruck.

23 PAX reported to Iron Horse for a bootcamp beatdown. It was a crisp 30 degrees but things heated up quickly.
Slaughter Starter

Imperial Walkers in cadence-ish.  Mumble chatter was a plenty because cadence was slower than the normal.

WMH – 10 count to each side

LBAC – in cadence to 15 each direction

a few weeks ago, the air medical industry was rocked by 2 fatal crashes in 24 hours. Guardian Flight – Alaska, a fixed wing aircraft, went down over water in Alaska.  Survival Flight 14 went down in the woods of southern Ohio.  Today’s workout is one put together by a friend in memory of the Guardian Flight crew; Pilot Patrick Coyle-63, Nurse Stacie Rae Morse-30 and Medic Margaret Langston-43.

  • 3 Rounds(3 crew members)
  • Step ups with coupon – 63
  • burpees – 30
  • squat thrusts – 43

Probably one of the shortest burpee trains rolled through.  Of course remarks regarding the short duration of the train were met with “that’s what she said”.  Wouldn’t expect less from these guys

No time for MARY today


Twilight – possibly facing some career changes.  Prayers for wisdom and guidance

Penn-Segal’s friend Spencer – wife filed for divorce yesterday.  they have 3 kids

A lot of sickness going around. Pray for good health


As I mentioned earlier there were 2 fatal accidents recently.  Regarding the flight in Ohio, NTSB preliminary reports suggests they may have encountered weather that contributed to the crash.  These events have provided the opportunity within our industry and program to revisit and review our safety measures.  As the Site Safety Officer for our base, it is my responsibility to ensure that everyone is being safe so that we all go home to our families.  I am thankful to work for a company that places safety very high on the list of priorities. Because of recent events, we have warned crews about becoming complacent.  Complacency is not just an issue at work, but in every aspect of our lives.  Whether it’s your job, your marriage, your fitness, your diet we must never let ourselves become complacent. We are at war every day with evil that is looking for the opportunity to attack us in a moment of weakness.  Take some time to evaluate yourself and identify your areas of weakness.  Put in place safe guards.  Establish accountability with someone.  Do what you have to do to protect yourself, your partner and your kids.  You’re not alone.  We are here for you.

“The moment you start reducing expectations you risk introducing complacency.”

“Complaceny: being overly satisfied or comfortable with an existing situation or condition; often while unaware of some potential danger or hazard.”

Third Thursday of the month is this week.  8PM at Main St Pizza.  Come for some pizza, a frothy cold adult beverage and good conversation about whats going on with the guys.
