The BackBlast:

8 PAX braved the muggy conditions of Independence Day morning to start their day. Runners got in 5. Good mumblechatter at coffeeteria afterwards.

One topic briefly discussed prior to the counterama and namerama was the idea of independence, given it was July 4th. Independence insofar as to what we can or cannot control in our lives. Appreciation for the little that we can control, whether it’s showing up for each other in the gloom, or being a HIM to our families, or just focusing on being 1% better every day. Because there’s a lot of $hit in this world that’s out of our control, and we gotta be ok to deal with that and accept that and work with that. Appreciating what we can control will help prepare us better for tougher moments.

Many thoughts go out to @Ned Ryerson’s mom and her recent diagnosis, and he and his family. We are here for you, brother, and will help you get thru this.
