Spoke a bit about accountability. A couple items to remember (one bible verse and one quote):

Proverbs 27:17: Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

“Being held accountable feels like an attack if you’re not ready to acknowledge how your choices and actions impact not only yourself, but others” – anonymous

Challenged PAX to be open-minded and always welcome criticism and accountability. It is the only way to truly get better and in turn, make others around us better.


Lots of good MC as always at The Battery!

More discussion surrounding cadence/no cadence on the forward fold. Cadence works great when certain people attend the beatdown. No cadence works great after you have just run up The Battery hill and need a moment to catch your breath!

Deep Dish continues to enjoy pain; His ten count consisted of “0” during the beatdown. He’s an animal! On that note, I have still yet to get Abercrombie to take his vest off. That’s got to be like: Abercrombie’s vest: 5 and Blackout: 0 at this point….
