The Thang

After the warmup, we ran to Carroll Park and did TROLLS (triceps dip, reverse lunges, OH claps, LBFCs, Lunges, Skaters). If I Q enough, I’m confident it’ll catch on. Afterward, we ran to Maple Park, and there, we did seven reps of one exercise (e.g., burpees) and then did a lap around the park. Once the lap was done, we did seven reps of another exercise and then did another lap. We repeated about five or so times and then headed back to Eagle’s Landing for some quick box cutters.


My wife and I have done quite a bit of work to our yard since we bought our house, including planting a ton of spring bulbs. When we moved in, we had a single tulip, which was kind of sad. Anyway, with spring bulbs, you have to plant them late in the fall, as they need a period in the ground when it’s cold. Because of that, you have to think ahead and plan accordingly. You can’t just throw those bad boys in the ground in March and expect them to come up. It’s also not immediate gratification – you have to wait patiently through the winter. While a good amount of the bulbs come up the next spring, some of them get eaten by squirrels, rot, etc. It’s the same thing with our goals and what we want in life – you often don’t get immediate results and it doesn’t work sometimes. In spite of that, it’s important to think ahead, plan, and invest now in what you want in the future, though it may not be guaranteed. Plant those bulbs now.
