I was reminded of an important life lesson on Tuesday. The day started fine with a solid workout at the Rabbit, however, it quickly declined from there. The first challenge was getting my son set up and motivated for school despite his defiance. The challenges continued with a series of contentious and difficult meetings at work. And the day ended with some bad personal news. As I was wallowing in self-pity, I remembered that there’s nothing you or I can do to change the past. The key is to shake it off and remain optimistic and hopeful for what’s ahead even in the midst of difficult times. And there’s going to be a shit ton of difficult days ahead of us. So always put the bad behind you and move forward with hope and positivity. You’ll be happier and more successful because of it.


Bright Idea, Huffy, and Chum were engaged in some odd burpee related ritual during a portion of the warm-up.

Qs take a lot of heat from the PAX
