Or- Becoming Bulletproof
Too many of us (speaking non-mil specifically) never get close to the bottom of our well and I think that's pretty damn sad. We have no idea what we're capable of because we never dare get near our limit.
Friday’s are my sprint days. I will be transforming them into Bullet Proof Fridays!
It’s great to read this first thing in the morning. I had the honor to ruck with you John. During Assessment & Selection, and a few during The Individual Training Course ‘Class 2-12’. Bret’s class. MY EAS was in 2015 and like many, I found myself in a dark place. I had trained/served with the best so I knew what I needed to do right? One would think. It took me many years to pick up a shovel and dig my well but it doesn’t matter how long it took; it only matters that I did. I took my ruck out of retirement on Tuesday the 23rd ‘55lbs plus water’. I planned a 6 mile ruck on an unfamiliar trail here in Florida. When I found myself rucking through foot prints it dawned on me that I was the only dumb SOB out here in bf Egypt and they were my foot prints. I had gotten turned around. Long story short it took a 3 hour round trip to get back to the truck. Take away: These rucks are spiritual nutrition. Mind, body and spirit. You’re crushed after but your mind is right. It humbles you and forges you at the same time. I can also verify that you beat more than most during those timed events, and those Marines heard about it afterwards. Being the fact that you were at least twice our age and retired. That was 10-12 years ago. Glad to see you’re still crushing it Mr Dailey. You’re an inspiration and thanks for the read 🤙🏼
Great piece Ranger D! I am going to implement the hardass end of the week workout. That is not something I remember from my past life in the Platoon's, but it does make sense and I am fired up. That trip to Guam and the mission sounds epic... Be safe and send updates!
