Renewal

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

On a glorious Tuesday morning (aka Run Day), I was warmly greeted by all the Pax arriving at Davis Park… In reality, it was Airbags and me… And we ran…long (5.2 miles) and fast (sub 9:30) pace. Not bad for two old ‘Respecters’…   BOM NR/CR (easy to do)/ Prayers We discussed the renewal of […]

Push On…

YHC greeted 5 eager men on a not unpleasantly cool DP morning. They were counting on a ‘run day’. As it turned out, this was mostly true… YHC posed the question: How do we become the best version of ourselves? (and not of someone else, by comparison). YHC reminded them that sometimes (as he is […]

Waiting…

In the warm gloom of Sunshine Park, YHC greeted 16 men, eager for a Saturday beatdown. As it turns out, he would not disappoint…based on the post workout mumblechatter. As some of the pax know, YHC has had some time on my hands lately. Mostly waiting. Waiting for things out of his hands. Things beyond […]

ARE YOU IN???

Welcoming themorning’s downpour as nothing more than a ‘cooling mist’, 10 brave souls united under the Badlands flag. General dispersions were cast in the direction of the collective fartsackers who clearly feared that excess moisture from the skies might cause their makeup to run… Special props to Terminator, who brought his brother from ATL, and […]

On Wings Like Eagles…

Another delightful run day in the Badlands! 8 pax joined YHC in the nippy 45 degree air, eager (not so much…) to mosey. YHC posed this important question in the warm up: What will you do when (not if) you face a crushing loss or defeat? YHC took the opportunity to dedicate this workout to […]

MOVE ON!

YHC greeted 15 (mostly) smiling faces in the warmish Poseidon gloom, eager to begin the weekend and end the year on a positive note. With this sentiment, YHC reminded that Pax that the past is behind us; that we’ve all done things we wished we hadn’t last year, or missed on things we should have […]

A Leader…On The Fly

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

Five cheerful faces greeted YHC in the pre-dawn, 45 degree gloom. Though eager to get moving (and thus warm), the Pax listen to YHC blather on about leadership and stuff (blah, blah, blah). He explained that on our 4 mile Tuesday jaunt, each man must be a leader… on the fly. Each man will choose […]

We lost our 41st president last week. George H.W. Bush. In 1990, Bush spearheaded the creation of the 1000 Points of Light Foundation, the goal of which was to promote private, non-governmental solutions to social problems. There are 18 street lights in Davis Park, We will visit each one in his honor; we will do […]
