Sometimes in life we get to make the choices. Sometimes we have a choice, but we don’t have clear line of sight into what that choice means. Control what you can control. You can always control your effort and your attitude.

Bountiful mumblechatter. Love him or love him, you have to admit Farmer is a tenacious encourager. He encouraged literally every St. Jude virtual runner we passed (approximately 75). After Qing the first ever Farmer WOD at the Barracks this morning, I have to admit I was impressed that he brought such energy to random strangers circling the park.

Lots of 345ers this week including Gepetto and Oneder grabbing their first! Chef has so many that he has a special notch paint on his CMU.

Lochte is guaranteeing victory on December ruck miles challenge. It’s pretty clear that Zima and Upgrade don’t stand a chance of catching him.

Snookie talks like he hates running, but I know deep down inside he really loves it.

New Year’s day convergence coming up at the mothership.
