On our way to the Warm-a-rama/Pre-thang, I mentioned that I am not a professional,  so modify if needed.

Announcements/Prayer Requests:  Asked for prayers for Gump and safe travel for all of those who were attending the CWS.  Animal House asked for prayers for his co-worker Dan, who was in the hospital with some health issues.

COT:  The workout today was broken into a few numbers, 52 and 54.  These have some meaning to me on my 1 year F3 Anniversary.  On Fathers day, June 21, 2020, I made a promise to myself to lose weight.  Just 1 pound a week for 52 weeks.  I hit my goal weight of 200lbs and lost a few more.  My anniversary Q is a bit late due to a family vacation, but before I jumped on a plane I weighed 198 lbs.  With my 37lb suitcase, I didn’t even weigh what I believed was my peak weight.  I had attempted to better myself before, but it was a big rollercoaster.  Lose a bunch, get burned out, put weight back on. But my goal was simple, 1lb every week for a year.  The goal was achieved because of so many PAX that offered support through texts, phone calls or conversations during pre-runs or during workouts.  I wanted to send a special shout out to the following PAX, (in no particular order) Lucky Charms, Huffy, Safe Ride, Toad Stool, Swinger, Wait Time, Brazilian, Jean Claude, Firewalker, Knobs, Gunner.  They welcomed me to F3 with open arms, sending texts of encouragement, all while pushing me outside my comfort zone.  To the rest of the F3 Omaha PAX, your stories, personalities and amazing work ethic continue to inspire me and continue to hold me accountable.
