– Freed To Lead (p. 86)
Our brother, RA, was all-set to lead our men through a vigorous and well-planned beatdown at The Green Room this morning. However, much to his bemusement, he was unable to turn-over his car this morning and reached out to Rancid for a last minute Audible. PAX are in-connection with him to support a resolution – thinking about RA today.
F3 Deck in-tow, and with Waddle’s expert guidance around the park, our men enjoyed a scenic mosey all around Humboldt, interspersed with highly-executed pain stations.
On mornings like this, I am so proud of our PAX who make the hard choice to band together in The Gloom. As we all know, things don’t always go the way we plan. But as my Omaha brothers Armbar and Othello have taught me…
E + R = O
(Event) + (Reaction) = (Outcome)
We can’t control the Event, but our Reaction will absolutely impact the Outcome.
Stay strong, men. Appreciate you being here today and always!
Thank you, Sky Q!
