Fighting thru the gloom to focus on 2/20

Posted on

When Sweats put out the call yesterday that the Q Sheet had an opening, YHC jumped at the chance to lead the brave souls that came to #TheBigDance.  In thinking of a thematic approach to the Q Plan, the date 2/20 kept resonating.  YHC has been wanting to do a work out that was high […]

A wise man once said, “Before you criticize, you should walk a mile in their shoes…that way, by the time you are done criticizing them, you are a mile away and you’ve got their shoes.” Alarm goes off, guy quietly gets out of bed so as to not disturb his sleeping wife. He quickly gets […]

Burping the Baby

YHC welcomed his first 2.0 into the world 22 days ago — an incredible, life-changing event.

What a fitting way to spend your Valentine’s Day morning. Leave your beautiful wife laying in bed while you crawl out of the fart sack to hang out with a bunch of burly men who may or may not be wearing deodorant.  Luckily, YHC’s not married so he didn’t have to risk a female’s scorn […]
