First post. What a way to wake up in the morning, eh? It’s one thing to be humbled by a situation that you never saw coming. It’s completely different to walk headlong into a situation that you *know* is going to humble you. This, I feel, is the number one reason that has kept me from facing my growing waistline and the general decline in my physical well-being.

I’m not sure where to start on my notes from the post. It’s really kind of a sweaty, out-of-breath, on the edge of puking blur. My aerobic abilities were definitely put to the test. I was diagnosed with asthma about a year and a half ago, and running has never been my strong suit anyway. Indeed, the initial lap around the AO was just about more than I could take. The squats, Merkins, et al were almost a welcome break. Almost.

Beyond that, I was simply in survival mode. Trying to figure out how far to push myself during any given exercise while knowing that I need to leave *something* in the tank for the next.

And a lot of wondering what time it was. “How far off is 6:15AM?”

Bottom line: it sucked, but 30 minutes after, I felt great. I’m wicked sore today. But it’s a good sore. Like I did something yesterday beyond staring at a computer screen or the bottom of a glass of tasty craft beer.

I would like to thank Dora for reaching out and talking me into this. And I’d really like to thank the Pax for the words of encouragement during and after the workout. I held you up more than once, fellas, but you never made me feel like I did. I appreciate that.

P.S. Let’s hear it for my 2:00PM crash yesterday! Out of nowhere… BAM! Hit a wall. HIT. A. WALL. Black coffee to the rescue!
