Columbus Day/Indigenous Persons Day is a bit of a controversial holiday, so why not celebrate with a bit of a controversial beatdown? 13 PAX braved the gloom for a trip down recent memory lane of the IronPAX challenge. Yes, IronPAX is controversial. Why shouldn’t the PAX just do it all together? Why does it have to be a competition? Why aren’t some of the PAX not going all the way down on their coupon squats? To YHC, it is actually a great event worthy of reminiscence. It is an opportunity to push oneself as hard as possible. It’s a chance to become better than the day prior. And it’s another great day in the gloom with fellow PAX.

COT: This past weekend, YHC had the opportunity to serve as a cadre member for GTE 32 in Virginia Beach. It was an opportunity for PAX to push beyond their known limits, ultimately placing themselves into a position where they discovered that they could accomplish far more than they ever thought they could. There is an energy amongst the PAX, and it is an incredible thing to experience first hand. YHC believes the Holy Spirit is involved, but whatever your faith journey, it is truly incredible to witness. It reminded YHC of a quote: “Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible be found in us.” — Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times (Shambhala Classics)
