Still an OTB?

5 showed up to boxtrot and got better.

PAX: Schnitzel, Worthington, AP, Dig Dug, Xbox (Q)

2 miles north on the Sammamish River Trail and back. We averaged 9:39 a mile today with mile two being our fastest: 9:26.

We circled up, counted off and did nameorama. FSBO then showed for a post run ruck to hear AP define what a Ball-of-Man is supposed to look like: one man in center with hand up, the rest of the men come in and touch the shoulder of that man or one close to them.

Great to see 5 today. This OTB is near On-the-books with its consistency. Come on out and join us.

Three FNGs on the birthday. I’m walking around shop in my workout clothes and have wrestled up another easy 6 FNGs for next week… could grow fast.

Ball-of-Man with WoW: my wife gave me a hard time last evening saying I gave her an “emotional headlock (her words)” when I told her one of my super powers was her cooking: attempting to encourage with my gratitude. We had a rough night with the kids and she was tired, so all she heard was “so you want me to cook for you every night!!!!!!” Given fatigue it overwhelmed her. The wisdom lies in my non-defensive response, even though I steamed internally. She IS absolutely appreciative of my encouragement, but because of her abnormal fatigue state, it had a negative affect. When you get an unusual response from someone, not steam like I did, but instead look at the situation to understand what might be affecting the person, causing them to react that way.

Lots of opportunity here gentlemen…come join the fun…and as always, thank you for the opportunity to lead. Peace!
