Friends old and new

Workout Date:





Kitten, Cheetah (2.0), Cousin Vinny (DR from Chapel Hill!)

The Thang:

It was 60 degrees and cloudy when Cheetah and I strolled into the parking lot at the PitStop. There were a few men milling around outside. We invited them to come out for the workout. While we didn’t succeed at EH’ing any of them, I did meet a new resident named Johnny who hopes to make it out soon. Around that same time, a guy came jogging into the parking lot wearing workout clothes whom I’d never met before. It turned out he was on vacation from Chapel Hill and had run 2 miles from his hotel to work out.

At 7:29, I gave the 1-minute warning, followed by the disclaimer at 7:30. Throughout the workout, we paused several times to speak with other acquaintances who happened to walk by, including a former church member and a few long-time shelter residents I’ve been trying to EH for a while.

At 8:15 time was called.

It was really good to have Cousin Vinny at the workout and to see the connection of F3 that is spread all over the place. I have to say that if he hadn’t shown up, cheetah and I would have probably just headed back home. That’s the beauty of accountability. We show up for each other to encourage one another to post and to grow stronger and better.
