There was a time that I can remember when I had to remove a lot of running if I had the Q at Folsom but these days the Folsom boys are bat flipping. I knew I had to dial it up a notch. Weather was perfect. Cloudy and cool. Most guys did an EC run or ruck and 6:30 time to go! Throughout the workout I decided to read quotes about loving people since it is the Easter season. Ball Joint correctly noted afterward that the quotes were taking up valuable workout time and he is 100% correct. I use the quote time to allow myself to rest.

“Lots of people love to ride with you in the limo, but you need people who will ride with you on the bus.” – Oprah Winfrey

“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get, only with what you are expecting to give.” – Katherine Hepburn (actress from before even my day)

Mosey down to the concrete pad near the dog park to previously placed Blocks. Only brought the 24 lb. ones. Sorry Westside and Wichita.

“I have decide to stick with love. Hate is too big a burden to bear.” – Martin Luther King

“I want to do good. I want the world to be better because I was here.” – Will Smith. Hmmm! Lots of discussion after that one given recent events. It was noted that just talking about loving your neighbor is not enough.

“Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good too.” – Yogi Berra. It was noted that he also said “I’d give my right arm to be ambidextrous!” and “That place is so crowded, nobody goes there anymore.”

Mosey to bottom of hill behind the dog park.
Time to let the bat flippers loose!
Triple Nickel Hill Sprint Style
5 Squats at bottom, 5 burpees at top near the sign, 5 times. Round Up and Tonka leading the way. Sister Act middle of the pack at best. Hate to see it! Hacksaw dragged me up the hill the last leg. That’s always a crowd favorite.

With all of these hard chargers, we are ahead of schedule so another round of block work.

“God teaches us to love by putting some unlovely people around us.” – Pastor Rick Warren

“Our job is not to ridicule and hate but it is to love people to Jesus.” – Pastor Hugh Whitfield

“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” – Jesus in John 15:12-13

*NMM Great to get to Q at Folsom in a coveted Saturday spot. Love to see the guys pushing so hard and still picking up the six. The Rev. Low Carb (Wichita) is embracing his new nickname and has plenty of work to do as the group seems to love sugary cereals, cinnamon sticks and biscuits. I didn’t know Tonka but he is a tough young man since he kept up with Round Up most of the morning. Seuss was throwing around the block pretty well today. Volt is not saying when his birthday is and also still hates Raisin Bran. Oompa is on IR but came to eat with us. There was some discussion about Slaw kissing and possibly dating a llama. Round Up ate 10 eggs at breakfast. “Somebody” put some used, hairy, sweaty KT tape on my mirror. The nerve.
