Thanks to the men of @F3Lagrange for allowing me to lead you all today…much appreciation. And thanks to @RA (F3OakPark PAX) for the inspiration (…I shamelessly stole a variation of a previous workout he Q’ed — imitation is flattering).

CLOSING COMMENT:

With so much change, challenge, divisiveness, selfishness, etc. in our country/world/society, it’s easy to get discouraged/upset with others. I am certainly guilty of it — and its increasing as I get older. Or as my wife puts it as she describes me at times…I’m getting to be too much of a “get off my lawn, angry old man” at my ripe old age of 37. I can’t argue it most of the time…and certainly not proud of it. One thing that always seems to put some positive faith in society/humanity for me is when I experience/participate/witness a random act of kindness…ideally to a stranger; though it can be for a close family member as well. I challenged all of the men of F3LaGrange (and asked for commitment) to perform one random act of kindness today/this weekend. Go out of your way to make someone else happy…big or small. It makes a different to pay it forward…for you…and for others. Thanks again, men!! Until next time…
