Thanks to all who braved the frigid, moist, gloom this AM for YHCs VQ at Veterans Park. It was a Veteran themed workout to honor all those that have served this great country. PAX gathered pre-dawn to try to be all they can be and do more before 9am than most do all day. They were accelerating their lives in a global force for good. They were few, and they were proud. The we’re aiming high. They worked hard so they could be always ready.
