AGB — Always Gettin Betta

9 Real Pax showed up this morning ready to join my first beatdown. Being my first Q, YHC definitely did not want to disappoint my fellow PAX, and was hoping they would enjoy the workout, as well as not enjoy the workout! (I once heard another wise and profound PAX say if you make the workout suck they will like it). I played mostly Hard Rock music throughout my Q, much to the chagrin of my fellow University of Kentucky alumnus, Papa Smurf. Perhaps this part sucked the most for him! The weather was perfect this morning at Sunshine Park, paving the way to a great workout with no elemental obstacles. At the warm up, and throughout my Q, the message of the day was proclaimed — AGB! (Always Gettin Betta)

Returned to the message AGB.  Always Gettin Betta. Urged the Pax, and YHC to always get better at everything we do.  Always Get Better at being a husband, being a father, being a son, being a brother.  Always Get Better at being a boss, being an employee, at posting, at Q ing.  AGB at being spiritual, being a neighbor, working out. AGB at watching what you eat — Chik Fil A over McDonalds.  AGB with finances, etc, etc, etc.  AGB at life.  It all starts with our workouts at 0530.  Once you start getting better at one thing, it will carry over into ALL aspects of your life.  Aye?

Count O Rama, Name O Rama, Announcements, Prayer Requests, the Lord’s Prayer

Other notes:  Lots of mumblechatter was heard during the boxing relay.  Iron Maiden’s “the number of the beast” was played during the beast.  Sandcrab allowed the PAX to slack on their pushup forms because it was my VQ.
