Rehearsing the WCS

“The best time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining” – JFK

A very real – and very first world – Worst Case Scenario

Pappas told me about a couple Tim Ferriss episodes worth checking out; he may be an asshole, but he’s definitely not a liar. Good stuff. The two I listened to are, How to Practice Poverty & Reduce Fears, and Groundless Fears. I was really struck by the idea of practicing for the worst-case scenario by living it, and then posing the question, “Is this the condition I feared?” I mean, it’s really fucking nuts how much of our lives are controlled not by what we want, but by what we fear.

Geronimo Trail – South Mountain in the PHX

Missed O-Lifting due to the Highland Games on Saturday! Warmed up for the sunshine + kilts by hiking a longer-ish trail early Saturday morning. Found a section of the National Trail that will be perfect training ground for Ragnar Trail McDowell Mountain. Also ran into a group of beefcakes banging out push-ups on the trail. I guess it’s never too early for the pump.

cartwheel Katie
That’s Katie (on the right). She was the only chic to successfully turn the caber on Saturday. She does a cartwheel after she turns it, and strips down to damn near nothing between events. I suspect Katie is a CrossFitter
