Can't thank @woolybully61 enough for preparing these photos for us.
During the We Will Remember Ruck today we were honored to wear pictures of these Candian Heroes, like Jody's big brother John Wolford, on our rucks. It really helped to put everything into perspective. We did not "suffer" today. Despite what I wrote earlier, we did not "fight" through anything.
Our goal this morning was to try to honour those who actually fought. Those who actually suffered for our freedom.
Heading out for a ruck may not be your style, and that's fine. But please, take some time this weekend to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for your freedom.
Due to pretty rough weather conditions, we weren't able to head out for our second 21km lap at the We Will Remember Ruck this morning. The wind and snow made for a pretty slick course with poor visibility. Not a great combination for rucking on highways. So proud of everyone for crushing that first lap, though. We all fought through and had a great morning rucking to remember.
Our next free group ruck is this Monday, Nov. 12th at 9 am.
This ruck is a GORUCK Service Ruck, and Travis Manion Foundation Operation Legacy project.
We will meet in front of the Legislative Building, then head out, picking up trash and trying to clean up Wascana Park as we ruck around the lake. Conviction Ruck Club members who registered for this ruck through the @travismanionfoundation will earn their free t-shirt and GORUCK patch!
While it's too late to officially register as a participant and guarantee your swag, I do have an extra couple shirts if you're interested in joining!
I was blown away by the kindness of our Spartan SGX athletes last Friday. During our awards night they presented me with this great certificate and trophy in addition to a very thoughtful gift and card. Reading everyone's messages was awesome, and a reminder as to why I do what I do.
Thanks so much to everyone, not just for the wonderful gift, but for the opportunity to work with such amazing people.
