Pax counted into groups of three.
One pax of each group began on stage doing AMRAP of the listed exercises on the stage wienke. Each exercise was AMRAPped until relieved by push runner.
A second pax of each group relocated to the cone in the middle of the stage grass field to begin doing AMRAP of each exercise listed on the wienke.
The push pax ran between the two groups, backward when eastbound, foreward when westbound.

I forgot, respectfully. Thank God He remembers.
The ode’ to mental health Sunday morning pop-up run around Lake Flanagan organized by Birdman a couple weeks ago was a great experience. High impact men shared some great stuff about their own experiences. One thing I wanted to add, still wants to be shared, so I am going to mention here. You may or may not know, that one of the primary ways depression manifests in dudes is not necessarily sadness or depressed mood, but anger. And depression, mind you, is teratable. Drugs, therapy, group therapy, meeting dudes in the gloom for exerdcise, can all have a significant effect on depression. So, if you feel like you are living in anger, getting pissed off at everything, your M, your 2.0s, your job, or even your site Q, remember that depression is treatable. You don’t have to feel that way all the time.
As I work through my own issues and try to make a better life for myslef, I have come upon some inspiration from an unexpected source. If I could remake myself, right now, it would want to be a lot more like Ted Lasso. Pax quickly indicated maybe half or fewer of them have seen the show. I don’t get in a lot of TV time, so there might be a lot more better stuff out there, but I wholeheartedly endorse watching Ted Lasso. This is a guy who gets used by someone to create a failure that would be hurtful to another person, who happens to be an asshole. So, Ted Lasso gets setup and dumped on and the shit kinda keeps piling up with unfortunate circumstances. But every time he comes back with a positive attitude. I’ll never be able to come up with the genius one-liners like him, but his positive attitude are infective. He motivates by knowing and loving people and finding out what they love and feeding them exactly that. He is a true HIM, thank you Frosty for pointing that out. So, I suggest giving that show a chance, an opportunity to do similar for you what it just may be doing for me.
