I haven’t been out as much recently dealing with some injuries, but starting to turn the corner. Got the text from Beefsteak a few weeks ago asking if I could Q Big Monday and even though I was a little hesitant, told him I would do it. Big Monday… honestly, one of my favorite days to Q, because the guys just come ready to go. Sometimes it sucks to wake up, but you do it and it sets the tone for the rest of the week and for me, who’s been off and gotten off the routine, I needed this. So thank you Beefsteak! Showed up a little early to the AO, to set up a secret prop and get some stretching in, since I apparently need like an hour of stretching before doing anything now. Chatted with Cross Stitch and Beefsteak as the PAX started rolling in. Beefsteak mentioned that he ran into Mr. Belding at church yesterday and it sounded like he’s been off for a while but made the choice to get up out of bed and accelerate.
