Ha ha ha ha ha ha cough cough cough gagging on lunch

 

seriously?  you've done this before and you think we are going off to squat a few hundred pounds after? 

 

Ha ha ha ha ha... okay on sunday maybe...

 

Always bring your squat shoes.

 

Srsly.  This is creating a luggage issue for me.

 

shower, eat, drink. 

 

Mmmmmm..... good good plan but you forgot quick nap.

 

So I have to bring boxing gear, muay thai gear, bricks, squat shoes, a belt....

 

Good thing I'm bringing sherpa.....errrrr I mean spousal unit.

I AM going the distance

 

'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I'm still standin', I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.

hahahaha yeah I was going to suggest NOT traveling with bricks. I'd be more than happy to get some for muh nerds.

 

LOLS. Bigm.... meanwhile, I'll be passed out in my car in the parking lot of wherever it starts :P

 

Lifting! Good question.  If we lift on Sunday... I don't know. My gym is closed on Sundays (I know!). There is a branch of my gym open but it's like.. far away.  But, I wonder.... if maybe we could swing into Coffee's on visitor passes or something. It's also kinda far but it's worth a drive (or so I'm assuming).

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE there's an LA fitness near my hotel!  LOL.  Oh and I see a CF place near my hotel too.  Spousal unit will be sooooo excited. 

 

Actually we could go for a run after the ruck and call it rehab run

I AM going the distance

I'm not sure there is anywhere in Atlanta that is more than a couple blocks from a CF.

I'm training for 2 hours the day before the ruck.  LOL.  Imma gonna die. 

 

I think we should hit up the aquarium while we are in town!  Nerds + sharks = most awesome nerdiness.  Stupid touch the penguins is $55 but ain't nobody got time for that.  And because I'm this lame, I checked and there are no adult sleepovers while we are there.  stupid aquarium.

Spousal unit =~ mule?

Yes.  When I was on crutches all those times I started calling him sherpa.  He finds it endearing.... LOL.  (okay maybe not)
