Bumped (#FigurativelySpeaking #SocialDistancing) into Single Barrel last evening. He stated that he just got back from doing solo workout at Ten Oaks Middle School. He told YHC that it is tough for him to work out by himself. YHC agreed whole heartedly. We discussed how good intentions sometimes get dashed when there is no #accountability.

As we talked I let him know that if he ever wanted to workout to just let me know. I also mentioned that I would be at BombSquad this morning at regular time (6:00 am) if we wanted to join me.

Single Barrel sent me a text later that night letting me know that he would be at BombSquad, too. No one else reached out via Slack or text, so I was curious if any other PAX may randomly show up in the Gloom.

Got up little late this a.m. but knew Single Barrel would be waiting for me, so I hustled out the door; had about 5 minutes to get to AO, which should be plenty of time! As I rounded the turn on Carolina Forest Blvd, I could see one truck in the CFCC parking lot. As I came closer, the trucks headlights came on and whoever the PAX was (mostlikely Single Barrel) started to pull out! I quickly pulled into the lot and flashed my highbeams to halt my fellow PAX’s exit. The time was 6 a.m., YHC was “on time” but also late. We both parked and YHC & Single Barrel stepped out into the gloom ready to go!

We thanked each other for the #acountability and this is what happened.

Moleskin: T-claps to Single Barrel for reaching out to YHC and keeping me accountable. If you are struggling with accountability (like we all do from time to time) remember that you are not the only one. Reach out to a fellow PAX and phone a friend. Live 3rd and help that struggling brother out . . . you may be helping not only one but many. This is not limited to workouts only, and the struggles & pressures may worsen over the next couple of weeks. Now is time to Lock Shields and Sharpen Iron!!

 

Aye!
