Oscar Mike at The Oracle: Pain
9.19.2020 0600 Weather: 56° clear skies
PAX: Nightcrawler, Wentworth, Safe Ride
As we stepped off YHC gave a quick introduction and disclaimer to the well seasoned PAX that had joined him and reminded them of the pre-blast promise of low miles and high pain. YHC informed them that the short hike was going to be their warm-o-rama, so get loose.
The intended beatdown location was the first open grassy area on the trail, but Birman already had a lit cone set staking his claim to the ground, YHC adjusted fire and we trekked on to the next open spot, “DAMN, ANOTHER CONE, BIRDMAN?!”, I guess the bootcamp was using the whole trail system. Fortunately, this green space was large enough for both groups, so we settled in for the Thang.

YHC’s current buzzword has been swirling all around lately, starting with GrowRuck and being further drilled in by IronPAX, other men’s COTs and mentioned by DREDD in Q-source postings even this week.
The word is Duribility.
I believe this is one of the main reasons why, in F3, we choose to do hard things.
It is an important component of preparedness, and preparedness is vital to virtuous leadership. Virtuous Leadership is steady and consistent even in times of difficulty. We can prepare for the unexpected by doing difficult and dirty and demanding things regularly, by choice, so when it happens in real life we are ready.
Be ready, be prepared, be durible. Aye.
