We all knew this day was coming.  8 weeks ago we “shut down” our official workouts.  It needed to be done, it was the right things to do.  However, you can’t shut down people.  You can’t shut down connections.  You can’t shut down progress.  You can’t shut down faith.  You can’t shut down family.  We persisted.  We grew.  We worked out in our small neighborhood groups.  We forged deeper friendships and appreciation for those bonds with others as we all progressed together spiritually and physically.

So today was our first day “back”.  A few simple rules.  More than 10?  No problem, split off into separate groups and separate areas.  How close can we get?  Keep 10 feet apart.

Great workout today, perfect weather as well.  We had 9 PAX so the numbers were in line and we didn’t need to split (although we were prepared and will continue to do so as long as needed).

So, did you come back today stronger spiritually, mentally, physically?  If you did, great.  If not, you came today so that’s all that matters.  Keep moving forward.  Keep progressing.  Today’s goal is always to do better than yesterday.

Looks like the numbers across our region were pretty strong today which mean one thing.  We need this.  It’s not like we didn’t already know that with our smaller virtual and grassroots workouts the past 8 weeks but it really shows on a day like today.  Let’s keep encouraging and supporting each other because together we are stronger and we are strong.

Keep up the great work everyone.  Keep up the momentum.  Keep perspective in mind this week gents, you can do this.


  • 100 PAX challenge is here. Look for a backblast but the idea is that 100 individual pax donate $100 so that we have a fund to make some impactful local donations in the very near future.
  • Waxhaw Express will be an additional offering of running specific speedwork alongside Watchtower tomorrow. Should help thin the herd as well.  Goal is to do 4-5 miles running only and consisting of short 200m and 400m interval repeats and recovery runs. DM me or Wolverine for info.
