Two stations were set up, one on the North side of the building and one by the playground. We performed 1 exercise at each station and moved to the next, advancing through exercises each time we returned to a station. We got about 1.5 miles in and plenty of reps.

Omaha was called at 6:07 and we mosied back to the shovel flags for 3 rounds of American Hammers Rancid Style.

COT: I explained to the PAX my reservations and concerns that scared me away from CSAUPs in the past. I almost didn’t attend the last CSAUP because I had all but talked myself out of it. About a week prior I decided, even if I had to walk the whole thing, I was going to knock out a CSAUP. It was tough, but I made it. I told the PAX I was disappointed in myself for not attending past CSAUPs when my nerves got the best of me. I have missed too many events and opportunities in the past because I would have been out of my comfort zone. I reminded everyone to not let you hold yourself back. You can complete any task you attempt, but fail any task you don’t try.

Khakis took us out in prayer.
