DEA-Chicago tribute to USAF M/Sgt Maltz

Below is a recent message from a good friend of ours from the US Drug Enforcement Administration. This is another opportunity to keep the memories of those who have sacrificed themselves for our freedoms here in the United States. The event is less than 3 weeks away, so get training. LH

On Friday March 21, 2008 the DEA Chicago Division Office will hold this event at the same venue as we did last year which will be Marquette Park located at southeast corner of 67th Street and Kedzie Ave, Chicago, IL. We will begin at 2:00 p.m. This workout is challenging and is very similar to workouts found from CrossFit. This type of workout is very popular with Special Operations soldiers, SWAT teams, EMS, Fire, and First Responders. It's not how about the person who can run 10 miles without breaking a sweat but can't do a pull up or the guy that can bench 400 lbs but can't run a city block without sucking wind. If you don't normally do this type of work out, I encourage you to try it. You won't be disappointed! If you have friends from other law enforcement agencies, pass this along to them also. Plenty of parking available within park. Although this can be thought of as a competition, it's truly about pushing oneself and the pride knowing you simply participated in remembering one America's finest, Master Sergeant Michael Maltz. If you are interested please respond via email. (Email blocked. Respond with a comment to this blog. LH)
