Drew's Words of Wisdom...
Perspective- Just when you think everything is going right and you have some sort of balance in the world, BOOM, life hits you with a left hook. Life hit this morning AS I WAS LEAVING THE GYM TO SELL OUR SUV. I was about to go sell our car and pay down dome debt and Jenni texts with an urgent get over here. I show up an our car is on FIRE. Through no one's fault it was just time for the car to succumb to years of great use. I had two choices panic and make matters exponentially worse, or stay calm and act on net steps. It was calming to know that Jenni and I had prepared for an event just like this. Mentally we are both strong and able to think under pressure. We got things done, dogs out of the car, belongings out, documents, etc... Insurance agents were called, claims filed (while the car was still burning) all with no panic. Panic clouds the judgment. Panic dulls the senses. Panic leads to irrationality and loss of control. WE DON'T lose control. We control the variables we can so that we can perform when we need to. LIFE gives us the uncontrollable. Might as well prepare for it.

SATURDAY SHOWDOWN -
Week 5 is Here and we've made it back to the 2000s! We'd love to see every athlete here at some point on Saturday - whether is to compete, workout, cheer, or judge.
Heat sign up will be Friday at noon via signup genius.
Remember that if you need to make an appointment with a coach to do an open workout, that you need to be ready to start the workout at that time. A 10:15 appointment means 3-2-1-Go at 10:15. Come 20 to 30 minutes earlier than that to warm up.
CryoRecovery 5 Pack Give Away - athletes can enter to win a 5 session give away from CryoRecovery. One session purchase is required. Receive a treatment before the last day of the Open to be entered into the drawing.
Thank you so much to our sponsors for making all of this possible!
