Mosey to the pavilion for some Side Straddle Hops, Weed Pickers, Windmills, Hillbillies & Arm Circles. You’re right, Ha-Ha…they were actually Imperial Walkers.

@NachoLibre led the Mosey back to the flag for a minute of Mary. Great job pushing yourselves on the reps, Gents.


Heartfelt gratitude for all of those who gave their lives serving this great country.

Reminder of Alpharetta Murph workouts on Monday; three locations. Happy Memorial Day weekend, all.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Thanks to Ha-Ha for the coffee & bagels.

YHC Brought the Truth Nugget…Andy Stanley did a message on Sunday at NPCC called 5 Rules for the Road. It’s a great listen. But it reminded me of a book he wrote years ago called The Principle of the Path: How to get from where you are to where you want to be. It’s a phenomenal little book but one of the many takeaways is this…

Direction, not intention, determines your destination. We can’t get to Florida going north no matter how badly we intend to get there. Said another way…Discipline, not desire, ultimately determines where we end up. So congrats on having discipline in the area of exercise today. But take a look at the other areas of your life and make sure you are on the right path. Don’t procrastinate a U-turn if one is needed.


In the words of Imagine Dragons…”Whatever it takes. Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins. I do whatever it takes. Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains. Whatever it takes. Yeah, take me to the top I’m ready for Whatever it takes. Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins, I do what it takes!”
