Andy’s Graduation and Training Updates

Reflection on the 1 Hour, 40 Minute Plank

Delivery of Product and My Ride Back from Macomb

I finished up w/clients today (Sat) and finally got on the road to Macomb to go down and see Brandon and to watch the football game.  The game started at 6pm so I could afford a little later start and perhaps squeeze in some floor work out back before I got on the road….and I did.  [...][...]

60 Hour Ride at “the Egg”… Reflection
