Encouraged the pax to find and read the preblast.  Emails out every Sunday night around 830p and auto posts to Facebook and Twitter.  Props to Carebear and Prosciutto for the time they put into the preblast.  This week you’ll find a great quote from Calvin Coolidge of all people:

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgements requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience an maturity.


It’s difficult to get to know each other when we’re always pretty focused on the workout.  Today we broke a decent sweat but also made room to get to know each other a little bit better. 

Some of what I learned:  Sidekick’s high school sweetheart lives in his current neighborhood and his wife doesn’t know, work is slow for Early Bird so people must be healthy and Peanuts’ wife is sub 5 feet tall.


4/20 Goruck Tough prep workout before Landfill.  Consult rucking channel on slack
5/3 Goruck tough and light in Chattanooga
