#MFTF welcomes all levels of fitness and motivation. We have had #MFTF attendees go 5 miles at a slow leisurely walking pace; and we’ve had #MFTFers go 28 miles with 75lb packs — running the entire time!
Everyone has a personal summit and nobody will judge your effort. And the best news is that #MFTF is not about YOU. #MFTF is about THEM…the Gold Star family members who deserve to know that their fellow citizens recognize their loss and will always be grateful.
What to Bring?
This can get tricky depending on whether or not you are doing the pack version of the event.
I recommend that you review the following post on gear, but you should also reach out to your local team leader for more information.
After serving as a Captain in the United States Marine Corps, Dr. Gray earned an MBA and a PhD in finance from the University of Chicago where he studied under Nobel Prize Winner Eugene Fama. Next, Wes took an academic job in his wife’s hometown of Philadelphia and worked as a finance professor at Drexel University. Dr. Gray’s interest in bridging the research gap between academia and industry led him to found Alpha Architect, an asset management firm dedicated to an impact mission of empowering investors through education.
