Thank you and congratulations to all of the participants and runners of the 5k-It was a huge success and great to be a part of. Many had Pr’s and everyone finished strong! That was an outstanding race-well organized and a great atmosphere, I am sure we will be back next year.
Complete as many rounds in twenty minutes as you can of:
4 Handstand Push-ups
8 2-Pood Kettlebell swings
Tim dropped a line from Afghanistan and I wanted to share it with everyone…
Just wanted to send a quick note to say hello. I’ve been at work for 2 weeks now and have settled into it for the most part. I’m working as a fire inspector and investigator. I work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s gone by very quickly so far because I’m really busy which is a good thing! In addition to all of the inspections (between 400 and 500 a month), I conduct weekly fire safety briefings to all new comers, and fire warden training classes for various unit representatives. There’s a lot of report writing, which sucks, but most of the time I’m out running around the base. It’s nice to have the freedom to roam around.
Most of the guys at the station workout in the afternoons. A few of them do CrossFit which makes me happy, of course. We have limited equipment, but it’s enough to get buy. I’m slowly adjusting to the altitude (about 5,000 ft)…and I thought CrossFit was hard before!??!
I’m at a big base (Bagram Airfield) and it’s cool to see and be a part of what’s going on in this part of the world (I love seeing all the special ops guys!). There are people here, military and civilian, from many, many countries. It’s kind of funny to see all of the stupid s**t that people do that cause fires. For example, in the short amount of time that I’ve been there there’s been fires started by welding, a space heater, cigarettes, and burn pits located too close to open fuel storage! The biggest fire involved a large passenger bus. The driver was the only person on board, and didn’t get hurt, but the bus was a total loss. Gotta love that faulty wiring!
I can’t get on facebook when I’m at work (what the hell, right?) and my blackberry connection is hit and miss. I’ll try to post updates when I can, but email seems to work much better, as I can use my work laptop.
I hope everyone is doing well.
