Sweet, thoughtful Ned. He knew Coach would arrive at the Barn too late to set up the morning workout since he had to work at the hospital until 7 AM. So Ned came an hour early and helped put out all the toys. Except that doing this with Ned is like trying to plant a garden with a puppy helping you. Thanks to Franks’ intervention, there were no major confrontations.
New people: Josh S does “Maniac” workouts at his hometown in Steamboat Springs. Didn’t Teddy Bundy used to live there? Josh was brought by Lance who only shows up when he wants something and never brings his sister Renee’ anymore. Josh has been in town constructing the climbing walls at the exciting new CLIMB NASHVILLE facility on Charlotte. That Josh must be making a TON of money. Anthony works at Summit Hospital and was lured here by Smoothie. Anthony appears to be primarily a weightlifter and would benefit by our all-round approach to fitness. I worked on him to return. Carolyn recently went through the life changing experience of breast cancer. A former Bucksgym member, Coach made her re-do the waiver ‘cause it’s been so long since she was here. I don’t know why she stayed away—-maybe she didn’t want to be here when she was a baldy—-but now she has thick pretty hair, so she has no excuse. Carolyn brought friend Kesaih who worked enthusiastically and fit in well. Both girls could benefit from our strength-building friendship.
Led by our friend, neighbor and co-worker Kevin, many of you contributed to a memorial at Scale’s School in honor of our boy Jonah. The Little Baseball Player statue that his classmates put there 23 years ago was showing it’s age, so Kevin made it his project to replace it with a beautiful bench. I know I was expected to make some sort of thank-you speech this morning, but even after all these years I still get that frog in my throat. My tougher bride usually bails me out on such occasions, but she teared up too. We are so fortunate to have such sweet friendships at the Barn. I wonder if anybody would call the cops if an old couple is seen sharing a bottle of wine on that bench?
"The 32’s" was last done at LHCF almost exactly 1 year ago. Check the archives, see if you were here, see if your fitness has grown.
Topper spontaneously avowed that lithesome fiancee Karen (yoga-pants) will come next Saturday and lead the stretchy-flexy session. He usually comes to the 1st class. Come early if you expect to find a parking spot. Overflow is at the Arboretum Park.
And lastly, as I was turning off the music, lights, and fans this morning, there was an elderly man wearing only shoes and black underwear, still cranking out “The 32’s”. Dripping with sweat, he looked like he had lost 15 lbs today. I think it was Lew doing his 5th round.
See you in the AM at 0800.
