Monday “Did you know…”

Selfless Loyalty has been the theme in all the comments about Pags.

Alhough we all knew he was the best athlete in the gym, we didn’t know how we knew because he carried a simple, quiet confidence. Finishing first, finishing fastest, getting his name on the whiteboard were secondary to the “experience” of Corps Fitness. In fact, to know Pags at CF is to know that the group efforts, where he could Selflessly commit his energy to a cause greater than himself, are what motivated him.
And whether Sunday Specials, Hero Weeks, Incentives, Holiday Workouts, or any other CF events, he was there, Loyal, and ready to go! Pags is a true CFer (video).

All week long you can contribute some $$┬áto the Pags Fund bucket…CF will then cut a check to the Kyle Pagerly Memorial Fund. We start off, today, at 7AM with a big 4th of July Workout!

Also, sign up for the Survive the Smoker Incentive…spots are filling fast (consider it unfinished business)!

    That picture gets me every time. Nice tribute MD. Kyle was truly the definition of selfless.

    Kyle was one of the most selfless people I ever met…and his death has been hard to understand…I think we all try to rationalize or intellectualize an event like this in our own way in order to find some peace to move forward…my own struggle with this has been to come to realize that his gift to us was his presence in our lives and that his impact on my life will be everlasting…I still imagine that he will walk thru the door at CF with his dark glasses and sleeveless shirt ready to attack the task at hand…and through that memory or wish I find inspiration in knowing that he came through that door with his game face on every time…if anyone epitomizes the “relentless pursuit of perfection” phrase it was Kyle…and through knowing him and suffering with him I have become a better person in some small way…my Spirit stiil aches for our loss and for his family, but I also know we are all better people for having the opportunity to have had him in our lives for just too short of a time…and that is the damnable truth of the hardest lesson of all…

    We miss you!

    Thanks CF for doing this! This picture, although I was not there for this race, speaks volumes! Jack’s shirt “Fallen NOT Forgotten” with Pags looking on……… Kyle is a true hero in every sense of the word. My life has been touched and changed by knowing him and being able to call him a friend. He will be greatly missed!

    Thanks for making that video! I loved seeing him where looks so happy, exhausted, but happy. The picture did put my heart in my throat.
