“Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattainable. However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable.” ~Phillip Stanhope

His PT test is tough and prepares our men and women in uniform for duty if called upon. This weekend Jason challenged himself to be prepared for ANYTHING. This weekend had a theme – “Life Happens” – Jason and others like yourself who are reading this have had life happen to you. We ought to use life as a way to encourage ourselves to overcome tremendous physical challenges. Jason accomplished that this weekend by running 50,000 meters (31 MIles) with 8,000 feet of elevation! Great work Jason!
