Once we completed Walnut bridge asked Laces out to lead us to the Market St bridge and take us back to Love Shack. During the mosey to Love Shack, QIC was starting to feel the wings and pizza from the night before luckily it stayed down. Also, learned that by yelling “FELLOWSHIP” the PAX slow down for the 6 catch up. Thanks for tip Prosciutto. Once we were within eyeshot of the Love Shack Prosciutto called for one last sprint to the finish.
Once we made it to the Love Shack we noticed that our shovel flag tipped over which comes with a 10 burpee penalty.

WOD: “Success is just being happy… God has helped me to love myself. I know who God is, and I love God.” – Herschel Walker
We are a week into the new year. Everyone has set their New Years Resolution and goals. Now take the time to define what success means to you. Success is not just being on top of the mountain or having the most money. It could be completing a marathon, a GoRuck Tough event, coming out to the Gloom. Sometimes success is in the journey and not the end result. Herschel defined success as being happy which is a great definition and he got their through loving God. If you know and love God then you have already won.
New year, new goals, you gotta define success It’s not just being on top
