Today's workout was fantastic.  Selection will require a ton of grip strength.  We will carry stuff, hold stuff pull, push, and everything else imaginable.  I have always been a believer in grip strength since being a wrestler.  I never use straps in lifting and do some accessory work occasionally like pinch grips holds to increase grip strength.  Your grip can never be strong enough.

This workout was grip intensive.  I rowed rather than run which made it even more intensive.  Good luck with this one if you try it.  If so, post times and comments.
