Pax: Almost Famous, Wait Time, Vandelay, High Point, Kingsford,  Penny Marshall, Chiclets, Canadian Bacon, Tiny Dancer, Room Service, Quidditch, Mizzou, Jenny Bravo, Tom Tom, Cutting Edge, Dirty Bird, Waterboy, Venmo, Hemmi  

This morning as Tom Tom and Vandelay veered off for the 5 am pre-run, Wait Time and Chiclets cordially invited Pax for a 5 am pre-yoga session before the beat down. Brilliant Idea.  We should do more of this.  

At the 5:30 greeting a large group of men congregated on Burke Drive without knowing what was in store for them.  There was great energy this Friday morning as the breeze this morning provided some reasonable temperatures for our 45-minute sweat session.  Mission Statement, 5 Core Principles, Injury Disclaimer and “The Six” credo was stated.  No FNGs, so we got right to it.

COT- I mentioned how Miracle is my favorite movie. I did love the scene when the Coach Herb Brooks is “sprinting” them after he didn’t like their performance after a game.  Herb Brook’s leadership style while coaching this team was part of “the current time.”  Today, it may be a bit too toxic.  Virtuous Leaders have to know and use some many characteristics to guide their team and know how to effectively motive each member of the team to achieve the goal.
