Saturday – 140621

Pre-Deployment Portraits

Canadian Forces Corporal Nicholas Bulger, 30, of Peterborough, Ontario, assigned to the 3rd Battalion of Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, based out of Edmonton, Alberta, died July 3, 2009 while on patrol in the Zhari district of Afghanistan when an improvised explosive device exploded near his vehicle. Cpl. Bulger is survived by his wife Rebeka, and daughters Brookelynn and Elizabeth.

WOD

Bulger

Ten rounds of:

Run 150 meters
7 Chest to bar pull-ups
135 pound Front squat, 7 reps
7 Handstand push-ups

Jesse – 31:44rx
Ben – 30:30, (2 x 1.5-pood KBS for Front Squats)

N.B. – It can often be easy to forget that Saturday’s Hero Workouts are more than just a long and hard WOD. Corporal Bulger was a year younger than me when he died 5 years ago, leaving a wife and two daughters behind.

Please take some time to remember, especially as the latter rounds become difficult.
