Tuesday Attitude: Perspective
This is a poster in our house. It’s taken from Carl Sagan’s address at Cornell University based on a famous picture taken by Voyager 1 in 1990. (Pale Blue Dot book)
But perspective is a funny thing, because perspective is all, well, perspective. Indeed, at times, Tiny Insignificance can humble us. Then Grand, Meaningful Purpose can overwhelm us. Definitely. The performances and vibe of Hero Week, no doubt, had a powerful effect on this roller coaster of perspective.
On that note, here are the Hero Week Shout-Outs. First, every single person that attended any of the workouts put on outstanding performances, beyond their normal routine, and true to the spirit of HW…so congratulations and thank you to everyone.
Best Beginner Effort: Shannon…she was burnt out on Wed, but dug deep.
Best Teen Spirit: Jack D…totally motivated to finish…what were we doing at 13?
Rock Solid Award: Gretchen…quiet confidence and exquisite form…just getting it done!
Proof is in the Pudding: Axl…to go at his intensity level for 8 days is impressive. The big man can move.
The Energizer Bunny Award: Kate G…consistently ready, willing, able, and moving! Keeps going, and going…
What did I get myself into Award: Jan Dob…least usual suspect…huge performances…back to Shake Weights?
Best WOD: Pags — Barbarian…he’s a machine, but even that proved to be a brutal solo effort.
Spirit of Hero Week: DJ…the entire tone of HW was changed on Wed at the Barbarian when she started with the weight vest. Always motivating and firing others up.
If you completed all 8 WODs, please pick up your bag on the gym table. Shirts will be in later.
See you for Summer HW!
