Upon Completing 50 reps – PAX ran 20 yards (symbolic of the 20 years we spend at war), and filled in a religious symbol of there preference to signify fifty lives lost during 9/11 and the above campaigns (see white board in picture). PAX did this at own pace for the first 200 blocks, and complete the last 50 together in cadence. The Final Soul was honored with a 50 second Zap-hold.
