Tuesday Attitude: “When all is said and done…

…more is always said than done.” -overheard at CF

**Review–just in case you missed yesterday’s blog post…submit the baked good you will provide for the Pags 5k post-race table to comments or send an email to me (Matt).  Thank you for donating your time this week to the Kyle Pagerly Memorial Fund.

Sayin’ or Doin’…know people who, on their best, day can’t get it straight? Aha, but there are shining examples of action and positive energy. And the true measure of this is how we react when life throws a trial or predicament our way. Consider this…it was 1 year ago that MikeL dismounted the Smokehouse, which caused him chest pain, which led him to consult a doctor…and we know the rest. Just doin’ man…strength, commitment, family…turning an obstacle into a triumph. Just sayin’!
Keep the faith, ML!

    The reason it is easy to be positive is from hanging around with all of you (or as Maggie says now – y’all). There are many places for inspiration in one’s life but the CF gym and family is one of the most amazing things I have ever been a part of in my life. Sincere thanks to all of you. I truly am energized by each of you and love all of you! Many great years to come!

    You live your life with such honor and integrity, ML – and it was no surprise to see you handle (and continue to handle) a very challenging ordeal in much the same way. Ultra low moments and unbelievable frustration are part & parcel of what you’ve been through, but you never let it stop you from doing what had to be done. Doing not just saying…
