Pax: Beaker, Java, Tombstone, Spud, Skinner, Psycho T, Catfish, Firechicken, Mountie, Mayhem
12 brave men embraced their nature this morning to head outdoors to physically push their limits, as men were born to do. The air was cold but the fire in our hearts was warm.
Modesto old deck to warm up, though that would be a safe out of the way place to do that until Queen Bee needed to bypass 43 open parking spaces to drive to the top of the deck.

Have been curious to see if Tombstone was capable of being cold and counting at the same time, so a simple Dora was introduced, executing the reps at the bottom of the hill while your timer ran up the hill, around the bank, and back down to switch out with you.
Cycled all the way through to get the extra pushups as you boys are overwhelmingly flat chested and everyone knows that Mayweather is a titty man

Praise for the upcoming nuptials of Catfish’s son Dean. 10 days from now he’ll be able to join our ranks of bitching husbands.
As my ride through fall ball with Hot Rod concludes (undefeated) I can’t help but think it’s a great reminder of a lesson we all should live out loud. When the season began, I judged that dude and all I could see were the challenges and issues we were going to have. The city gave me a chance to get rid of him. I thank God I asked to handle it internally and see how it goes instead. Once I gave him a chance I found out that I didn’t inherit an issue, I had been given a great gift. An excellent coach who loves the game and cares about teaching it to the kids. A passionate competitor that was hard on the kids when they needed it, but also found ways to show them he cared. And most of all I got 11 kids who had the season of their lives, learned a ton about the game, made new friends, and had a lot of fun doing it.
People are different than us. They’re different than what we’re used to, expect, or even want a lot of the time. Don’t forget to not view that as a flaw, but rather an opportunity. Give everyone the benefit of the doubt, and you might find Hot Rods all around you where you least suspect them. Otherwise you might wind up against a Hot Rod, and that ain’t a place you want to find yourself. Don’t want to wake up at 0500 and go run outdoors in 20° weather? Do it anyways, you’ll be glad you did.
