  1. Thank you for the opportunity to lead this morning.  I’ve noticed more chatter about hurt calves and pulled hamstrings, so I thought it would be nice to bring some flexibility exercises to Warrior One.  I encourage you to complete a daily stretching routine to prevent injuries
  2. The concepts of Mindfulness  and moving with intention come from a book on meditation I’ve been reading lately.  I thought it may be nice to incorporate that into this workout.
  3. Happy Hour tonight at 7:00 PM (@Flanagan’s)
  4. Please remember to support our community outreach efforts.  We are collecting Men’s Shoes (washed and tied together) for F3 Nation (@BBQ is our Shoe Q), as well as Soup for the Harrisburg Food Pantry (See @Solo Cup or @Schedule C)

Peace,

Solo Cup

    Good job, Solo Cup! Thanks for leading. I was really able to concentrate on my breath today and it felt great.

    @SoloCup- looked like another classic, hate I missed it! If @SSMinnow didn’t need someone to anchor the back of the line I’d have been there!!
