COR/NOR:

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

-Save the date Jan 6. This Saturday workout will be a team building CSAUP (completely stupid and utterly pointless event) event…you DON’T want to miss it.

-We need a few more peeps for the P200. This would fill out Team 5 and provide alternates that we know we will need.

COT:

MOLESKINE:

Birthdays don’t excite me anymore. I signed up for the Q with selfish interests in mind, proving things to myself. Chumbucket commented about my birthday online and then some really GREAT things happened.

-The older guys have to show up early to stretch. I’m lying on the ground when Cubby walks up and declares that he would still be sleeping but didn’t want to skip my birthday Q.

-Bartman strolls in with a HBD greeting and a fist bump.

-Chumbucket rolls up with a grin and a HBD greeting.

-Dwight tries to be cool and stretch but ends up throwing a HBD to me.

-Dabo arrives and swears that he intended to wear his silkies in homage to my birthday but, he couldn’t find them (we all know that they ended up in his wife’s panty drawer; maybe they stuck together in the dryer…who knows).

-Urkel lights up the shovel tree and shows me my ornament. He’s an AMAZING guy!

-Many other PAX wish me HBD.

-On the mosey back from the post office, we’re passing our brothers who are training for this weekend’s Kiawah marathon and I get HBD greetings from them.

-During our Indian Bear Crawl, there was an impromptu round of singing, ‘Happy Birthday, Dear Squid.” I’m not going to lie, I teared up.

-I said that this Q had a selfish intent. I’ve not been able to keep my legs up/moving for more than 30 reps of Flutters in a long time. I’ve had a goal of doing so for my birthday number. This morning, the PAX pushed me and I counted cadence and completed 48!

I’ve managed to string a few challenging years together, back to back. This morning was the PERFECT way to start off a year that holds great things. I’m thankful for a lot of things in my life. This group tops the list.

INVITE AND CONTINUE TO EH the men around you. If you wonder if someone is a fit, you are overthinking it. INVITE THEM, they will figure it out, or they won’t. Many guys NEED this. Some want it and are searching but MANY GUYS NEED this. Give it to them. It costs you nothing and may be priceless to them.

It’s an honor to associate with you men but, having the opportunity to lead such a group takes me beyond words.

Squid, OUT!
