Moleskine:  It is always an honor to lead Pax in a workout. It stirs up something good in me and makes me a better man.

Pushing hard and mixing it up or breaking up work in to small sprints makes you not realize how much can be accomplished. We ran 3 around miles today. CHALLENGE: Translate that into life. Break things into small sprints, go hard, work hard, and then note the accomplishments when you add up the many small victories. Celebrate them.

CHALLENGE 2: Read this and bookmark the index:

CHALLENGE 3: Reach out to a Pax.



3 mile School Supply Ruck tonight at 7 from Syrup (Maple Park) to Rumble (Royall ES). Bring some school supplies. Fun fact: Ticanderogas make teachers happy or other well-made pencils (teachers enjoy sharpening those other brands as the lead is broken or they clog the sharpener).CCF033FD-8041-4CAC-AD76-B28880228CEC
