CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Word of the day is inertia.  Inertia in a physical sense is that an object will remain at a constant velocity unless acted upon by an external force.  Unfortunately that is also true when that velocity is zero.  When we went into the safer at home mode and halted workouts, I didn’t think I would struggle with workout discipline like I did.  I had a few minor physical things, but the mental battle of getting up and working hard absolutely smoked me.  The fartsack was victorious more times than not.

My velocity was basically zero, and though I wish it weren’t true I am sure I wasn’t the only one who struggled without the accountability of my brothers standing in the gloom.  So now the external force is back in my life.  My brothers, standing at the fountains at 5:30 eagerly awaiting whatever silly nonsense I’ve come up with or whatever beatdown someone else has concocted.  They’re there, acting upon me and accelerating me more than they know.

AYE!!
