Friday MOTIVATION for my friends on the East Coast

If ya wake up in the morning and it's cold, nasty and raining, DON'T look out the window and go, "Ah man, I'm staying in bed, it's to bad out." Open your eyes, listen for the rain and the wind, find it, jump out of bed, hit the floor for 20 clap push-ups, jump up and throw on your running clothes and add an extra scoop of coffee to your morning cup. What you have here is an opportunity. Yes, an opportunity to only get stronger. You don't get stronger continually training in perfect conditions. You get stronger and tougher by training in adverse conditions, like cold, wind and rain. Use this opportunity. Don't let it pass you by. Know this. Somewhere much colder, hotter, windier, nastier, there is someone out there with a FIRE in there gut that has been up since 4 AM pushing the envelope knowing that most people won't brave the conditions. Be that person! "ADVERSITY BUILDS CHARACTER!" Oh, and gives ya big brass metaphorical cajones! Enjoy!

My new Atlas Stones

After lunch yesterday, my neighbor Kevin and I headed out to my garage to work on some more man-style strength training toys - Atlas Stones! It's amazing the amount of joy one can have creating a large egg shaped rock. I wonder if this is how a proud rooster feels?! We made quite a mess but had fun while doing it. We did get plenty of stares from the neighbors. Probably because my 500lb tires were sitting out too. I'm sure they've got to wonder what the hell I'm up to!;-)
Anyway, checked on my large rock children this morning and it looks like they'll be ready for debut this Friday! I can't wait. Ah, to hold them in my arms as they rip the flesh from my forearms! Just can't wait!haha..I've even attached a photo for ya. There will be more to come!
If you have any questions about getting some of your own, let me know. I'll be glad to help. Have fun!
