I have appreciated the requests from former Navy and Marine buddies of mine to join them in training for triathalons, warrior dashes, Tough Mudder, half marathons, etc etc etc. No doubt they recall the Schirlings extreme former commitment to staying in superior shape.

But here is a heads up guys: MY job at the time, depended on such things. I have no desire to do that anymore. It isnt necessary to spend 6 hours in the gym and on the road every day. But I understand their desire to keep the mentality we all had in those Iraq days.

But the people who never lived that lifestyle with us........what the fuck are you doing?? Do you really feel some desire to affirm your manhood because you have never had to actually do hard things in your life? Prove that your not just some loser grocery store clerk,or pussy accountant ?? Sorry, I proved my toughness the real way, the way men in this country have been proving it for 230 years. I don't need to put on some spandex and swim in some cold bay, or ride a gay little bike to prove that I am tough.

To quote the great Kenny Powers:

 "I play real sports, not trying to be the best at exercising"
