Workout was inspired by the thought of us men burning out at times. We need to push ourselves so we can better understand where we burn out individually. Once we reach that point, it’s time to ask for help. Hearing about a local Marine committing suicide and leaving a family behind is something we need to do our best to prevent. Gave each PAX member a paper with my cell phone number and the suicide prevention hotline number if they ever feel the need for help.


My favorite twitter follow lately has been @LittleDebbie.

Their tweet on 10/16/19: “You can’t GIVE if you’re on EMPTY. Take care of yourself first so that you can take care of others.”

Plus, Christmas Tree cakes have arrived in stores!


Wasn’t really listening as I was handing out the paper with my contact info, but I’m sure they said something about something and something about convergence on 11/16 (surely they did).
