Après-Crossfit

Hey Athletes, Superheroes, Heroine, and SuperVillians…

So a reporter interviewed a successful entrepreneur named Joel Seanoa and the reporter asked Joel, who were your role models growing up, or who were the superheroes you looked up to as a kid?  Joel shot the reporter a crooked look and said, “My parents were my role models.  My parents told me not to believe in the superheroes I saw on TV.  My parents always said Create your own Superhero!”

I hate just to stop
Referring to Shmexas
But I have some news
ShGuadalajara

Next week is the birthday
This humble narrator
Will be turning 30
So come celebrator

I will be at the gym
After coaching gymnastics
In time for a drink
And other such antics

So come if you will
And skip if you won’t
This guy will enjoy it
Even if you don’t

Two more parts,

If I give you advice,
Like “keep your abs tight”
I do it to care
And to keep you upright

“Head through your arms”
And “please hit the hips”
Are words that will help you
Just take them like tips

“It looks kinda heavy”
“You should probably scale”
Are things that I say
So that you don’t fail

Please listen to me
I know what I’m saying
But if you oppose,
For your back I’ll be praying

Part 3 tomorrow,

The girl from Shmexas…

Gather around everyone for a little story.  I will call this one “The girl from Shmexas who was better at CrossFit than me”…

Keep your chest up
Your shoulder blades back
Lift with your legs
No spine out of whack

Scale if you need to
Rx if you can
But I care if you push it
To look like “the man”

If your form is atrocious
Or did not check your ego
Just take a step back
And relax mi amigo

Don’t need to impress me
I’m here just to help you
But if you know better
Don’t let me upset you

Stay tuned for more,

Called it…

Today is Sunday…BOOM!  All you suckers pay up!  No news for today except that I will not be posting any birthday reminders of any kind!!!  In fact, I will randomly construct a sentence to deviate from any mental reminders that a special day is almost upon us:

“Only 12 and 11 days remain until the greatest day of the year”

That can be almost anything,
