I got to know Eric Ervin back in 2014 when I was doing the GORUCK Pullup Challenges. At the time he was a drill sergeant in the US Army and prior to that he'd been a US Marine. His mindset for training was absolutely perfect for me - all about challenge and pushing yourself. He's one of the nicest, most supportive people I've had the pleasure of knowing. He's been a huge help in getting my pullups up to speed.

Eric is currently deployed in Afghanistan, but true to form he's still thinking of others and constantly challenging himself. He's organized this pushup challenge to raise money for a charity getting water to Puerto Rico.

The goal is to complete 10,000 pushups in the month of November; A $5 donation gets you a patch (badge) on completion. The challenge facebook page is here.
