-The pax did 20 yard partner lat pulls.  One pax was standing while the other pax was laying face down behind them holding their ankles.  The standing pax would take a step forward, and the laying down pax would then pull themselves forward by pulling on the other pax ankles.  They would do this until they got to the next cone, which was about 20 yards.  The pax then switched spots and went back to the starting line.

Leaders Message

In reality, there is, perhaps, no one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride.  Disguise it, struggle with it, beat it down, stifle it, mortify it as much as one pleases, it is still alive, and will every now and then peep out and show itself; you will see it, perhaps, often in this history; for, even if I could conceive that I had completely overcome it, I should probably be proud of my humility.

-Benjamin Franklin

Pride is something that affects us all.  If we are not humble and willing to accept the guidance and wisdom of others, we will only ever know what we know and will not grow.
