So, We Begin Again… From Scratch

Stretching the giant tree trunks… Friday (October 23) – So it’s been a while. When last we talked (or I typed and you read), I was sharing a pretty scary event with you. Thank you to those who passed on kind words after reading that little tidbit about fear. I’m fine. Well, fine as of right now. I haven’t had...

The Program

Home away from home… Monday (April 13) – You can’t have improvement if you are doing the same things over and over again. You just can’t.

While she went down to the condo gym, I did something I haven’t done in waaayyy too long, I hit the pool. Now the pool isn’t Olympic sized and...

44 For The Win

@Keilshammer after the Chipper throwing up the 44… Birthday WODs. Oi! Literally they will be the end of me. Today we were clelebrating @humphrda birthday WOD and after reading in the feed that it whooped him in the 6am class I was shaking. With countdown entering the critical phase (less than 3 days), there is still packing, pushing (of a...
