I arrived at the AO 0455. Muligan (RESPECT) was heading out for a pre 10K (psychopath). I did a roundtrip 25 minute. When I got
back to the flags Candian Bacon (RESPECT x3) and Lemu (RESPECT) were embarking on a pre-run. Unfortunately there no other pre-
ruckers so I did another 25 minute ruck to be back on site at 0600.
Bobsled welcomed everyone to Bunz Town and F3 (Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith), recited the Mission Statement, Credo and 5 Core
Principals. There were no FNGs unfortunately. Bobsled reminded everyone to modify as necessary as he is not a professional.
There is a real risk of injury. There were many Pax who I had not met or worked out. The most important thing you can do in prison
is find the biggest guy and hit him right in the mouth so that’s what I did. ��

RTR or MNC to the beat.
Conditioning circuit with approx. a one minute mosey up the steps to the school and back down the ramp to point of beginning. No
scheduled rest periods. Just go hard until OMAHA. I set it up this way so if you needed a break you could just step out and fall back
in when you’re ready. We took turns leading the exercises. All Pax got a chance to lead! Outstanding job by the way. Bunch of
studs. Conditioning circuit consisted of:
20 Alt Front Lunge
20 Alt Reverse Lunge
20 Jump Squats
20 Mountain Climbers
40 Air Squats
20 Side Straddle Hops

COT: (My Story)
My beatdown playlist was all Kool & The Gang (my birth mom’s favorite band). I appreciate everyone for bearing with me through
an emotional, long winded COT. I tell my story because I want people know who I am and to let people know if they have any
trauma or struggle with mental health, they are not alone. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. I’m also an open book. Thank you so
much for allowing me to share. It’s very therapeutic.
I carried a lot of anger with me until my mid 20’s, because I thought my mom chose drugs, alcohol, and sex work instead of me. If
my own mom doesn’t love me, then who will? Nobody I thought. I became a ward of the state at age 5 and spent a couple years in
foster care where I went through many types of abuse. I was filled with rage and hate. I blamed my birth mom for everything. I let
everybody I came in contact with know my pain. I was just a troubled kid, teen and young adult.
In my mid 20’s, I was able to obtain paperwork via the Nebraska Children’s Home Society stating that my birth mom had
VOLUNTARILY given me up for adoption because she couldn’t provide what I needed as a parent. Safety, security, food, shelter, etc.
She did WHAT? She didn’t abandon me? She gave me a chance at the life I needed by letting me go? I am forever grateful for that
decision as it probably saved my life. Very selfless of her to give me a chance, even if it wasn’t with her. She gave birth to me a
second time by giving me up for adoption!
It took a lot of time, support, counseling, Faith, loyalty, and love, but through forgiveness I was able to change my attitude and my
life. I let go of a lot of my ill will and feelings of abandonment towards my birth mom. I didn’t have to carry that anger around no
more. Unfortunately, I never did get the chance to reconnect or talk to her. She was the victim of a homicide in 1982. It remains
unsolved to this day.
Thank you, mom! You saved my life. For me, Forgiveness = Freedom
