  1. In honor of you Sgt. Major Patton!
    Not what I was expecting for a Tuesday workout…great programming Eric!

    1. Thanks Shane, but I have to give Joe credit for this one.

      I invite anybody that “couldn’t make it in” this morning and had to cancel at the last minute to come in any time between now and 3 PM to give it a shot.

  2. Jerry: 22:32
    A lot of fun racing with Kevin and Matt. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t hang on that last lap. Perfect day to do this WOD outside. Also, I’m not sure if the smell of Tasty Burger helps my run or hinders it.

    1. i HATE that. between tasty burger and burger king, the smells of cooking food are not ideal while running. especially when you have to pass them both multiple times in one work out!

  3. I don’t usually come in on Fridays, so this was my first Hero workout. I was psyched to do one, particularly as I am a member of the military (NG) myself.

    It would be cool to see a Hero mid-week more often!

    In your memory SGM,
    Jerry: 26:06 – thrilled to do mile 1 in 7:22!

  4. 29:24. I’m so tempted to put the “Rx”, but I’ll refrain.

    More importantly, a 13 second “85% mile” PR on the first one. I haven’t run a mile for time in too long, and I really feel like I should now to see how fast it would be if I pushed it.
