The PAX will continue around all eight cones until Omaha was called. Also, every 3 minutes the Qic would yell out “Octagon.” When the groups heard this, they would stop wherever they were and perform 5 burpees. Once completed, the PAX would pick up wherever they left off.
The PAX made it through 3 rounds when Omaha was called at 600am. The PAX circled up on the football field and completed a post-thang.

I want to share a quote I often use with my 2.0’s and remind myself of, “Comparison is the thief of joy” by Theodore Roosevelt. When we compare ourselves to what others have, or simply how they are, we are essentially making ourselves feel inadequate. It is only inevitable as humans to give into this trap. I want you all to remember that we are all special individuals who have different talents and abilities, and when we remember this we radiate a positive attitude that becomes infectious.
Aye! Icy Hot
