    Thanks for being my partner Shane. Well I got to sign the wall this morning too. Thanks for the final push guys I really wanted to finish this one. Have a great weekend everyone

    1. I think you owe Shane one for cleaning up after you ๐Ÿ™‚
      Great job on finishing. No wonder you got the sign the wall.

  3. QOD…I have two that I love. The first one is on my email signature for work, and the second one has been on my bulletin board in my home office for at least 10 years. Both quotes make me think deeply and provide perspective for me.

    My work one: “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.” – Mother Teresa

    I read Confucius in University, and he says the same thing. Like a pebble thrown on the water, the pebble is the family, and the rings are what result from ensuring that we love and protect those in our own homes first, and that this will take care of society.

    The second one is from Abraham Lincoln: “The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep’s throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act…Plainly the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a fair definition of liberty.”

    I like this one too, because we need to consider all perspectives, but even in so doing, we cannot always please everyone. We can only do our very best.

    Sorry for the long read…

    Don’t really have one but Jackie’s were pretty good!

    Row 10k with a partner – Cam
    Switch every 1000m


    I think we need to work on our transitions to get our time down OR we could work on rowing….;)

    Thanks Kevin, another fun one!

    1. you guys were machines. I was trying to catch you Transitions needed to be smoother. I thought I had the wrong setting in the beginning. Also I’m checking your wheel next time. I felt like degrasse trying to catch bolt (2 strokes for every one)

    2. Also awesome row. Del ” oldest rookie of the year ” candidate which could also be a nomination for MVP. And there is cardio CAM….just epic in general. A power house that turns any weakness into a strength That was a formadable team Hard to catch.

  5. Group Mob

    Row 10k with a partner โ€“ Del aka Micheal Phelps of rowing,
    Switch every 1000m


    I was hoping this WOD would be recovery, but no matter how I reminded Del that it’s Friday, my breaks seemed to get shorter every god damn round. haha! Del, you’re a machine!

    I could go on for days with these:

    “I am until I perceive otherwise” – Saul Stacey Williams
    That quote has always stuck with me. it reminds me that I don’t have to be the person I was before, I can always change.

    This one isn’t a quote in the traditional sense but I do like what it means.
    “S = K log W” -Ludwig Boltzmann
    it means there is a tendency to move from order to disorder and it increases as time passes.

  6. I’ve always liked this quote by Robert Kennedy: “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” I also have a bookmark that has quote by Eleanor Roosevelt that I love: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

  7. QOD: Heeee!!! One of my favourite things ever!!!

    – “It is never too late to be what you might have been” ~George Eliot

    – “The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.” ~Ferdinand Foch

    – “Only those things are beautiful which are inspired by madness and written by reason.” ~Andre Gide

    – “There are no beautiful surfaces without a terrible depth.” ~Frederich Nietzsche

    So, so many favourites.
