The Hill

Fast Ruck

Four Pax gathered for a Saturday Ruck. Since there was no scheduled Q, the Site Q decided to lead a fast ruck to get 4 miles in an hour. The group got 4.13 miles in at a 16:07 pace so finished in 66 minutes. Great job men!

Lots of good discussion ranging from medicine and health care to guns, and went for coffee afterward. It was a pleasure!!

Mumble Chatter was low probably due to the VQ slightly overdoing it on the workout. Q was forced to improvise adapt and overcome and reduce some of the counts to the approval of the Pax.
