Milkman woke me up at 0515 from a deep sleep and I arrived as quickly as possible at 0530. Mr. Clean stepped up and led the warmup and started his Thang until I arrived then I took over. Shout out to Clean for bailing me out. First time I have overslept when I am QIC. Hopefully, it will be my last!

Integrity is the most valuable and respected quality of leadership. Always keep your word. – Brian Tracy

The best definition i have heard for Integrity is this…it’s who you are when no one is looking.

This truth applies to so many facets of our life. It applies to the everyday choices we make. The choice to honor your wife with your thought life when temptation comes. The choice to honor your responsibility to be the best husband, father and/or spouse/ boyfriend, friend, you fill in the blank.

The choice to get up and ruck, to get up and post, to push through our workouts as hard as they may be to get better. To get stronger. We say it a lot during workouts. The only person you are cheating is yourself if you don’t do all the reps or cheat on form. Push yourself, but don’t hurt yourself.

Only you know how many reps you can do when no one is counting.

The same is true when it comes to doing the right thing on the job, not cheating on your taxes and not stretching the truth when challenged.

It all comes full circle to what i started with in the quote i read. Always Keep your word. There will be times when you cannot because of priorities with family. Be a man of integrity and let someone else know why you have to rescind an HC. Ask yourself, Who am I when no one is looking?

So I leave you with this verse from God’s Word (what I know to be the highest standard of truth.) Here’s what James had to say about integrity. He was known for sharing great wisdom.

“But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.”

‭‭James‬ ‭5:12‬ ‭ESV‬‬

I challenge you to be High Impact Men and strive to be known as Men of Integrity!



“Geek, Can I sue you when I scrape my leg Against these concrete bleachers?” To which your QIC promptly replied, “This is F3. I am not a professional. you are here on your own free will. Modify as necessary. Push yourself and don’t hurt yourself. Now, you can’t sue me. The disclaimer has officially been disclaimed!”

“Guess you have a short memory, Geek, after Moneyball’s Q at the Shot House yesterday and all the dive bombers we did.”  To that, your QIC replied, it’s only 10 during this set today. Be grateful it’s not 100!

Mr Clean was “gassed” from eating mexican last night “at that place over by print solutions. ‘Las Mara Lennys’ or something like that”

Milkman commented that when He calls me and I am asleep, He gets a long quiet pause, I answer, but quietly at first. Didn’t happen this morning, so he told the PAX, I must have been snoozing heavy.

Your QIC apologized profusely for showing up late to his own Q.

As always there were a few “That’s what she said” comments made.
