Wow, this month has flown by and I have been extremely busy.
Here is the catchup post:
The Hurricane Irma swept through the Florida Keys and damaged lots of my friends homes. Our stuff was ok for the most part but I was anxious to get down there and help. Residents were not allowed in past MM73 so we decided to take a 36 Yellowfin with triple 350's from Tampa to Duck Key to investigate and mitigate damage. When we got there, it was pretty bad. Flooding and wind damage were evident all over the island. However, Duck Key was definitely not the hardest hit. We cleaned up 2 houses and helped about 20 neighbors. This included 12+ hours of work on each one for 2 days. It is incredible what you can do with 6 guys, some tools and 12 hours of hard ass labor. No one stopped, we pulled out everything wet, all furniture, cut out the dry wall, pulled up floors, created a giant trash pile and got these two houses dry and on their way back to normal. No workouts needed on these days.
As soon as I got back we hit a few good ones then I had to attend the Wonders of Wildlife Grand Opening in Springfield, MO. This was an awesome experience and I got to hear 2 former Presidents speak, Kevin Costner, and a bunch of country stars sing some songs. There were the top NASCAR drivers, Bull Riders, Hunting and Fishing Legends. I was seeing all my tv heroes everywhere I looked. While on TV myself, I am a fan of all the sports and all the shows as much as anyone else. I consider myself a student of the outdoor industry so I know who everyone is and I make it my business to watch the stuff they do. It was cool to be included as a Legend myself and to be among such a talented group of people.
The museum is really an incredible place and you should go visit.
While there, I hit a Hinshaw workout in the parking lot of the Springfield Superplex 11 movie theatre that looked like this
Run 200 @ 1:04
Run 200 @ :49
Do 8 200's on first set, 6 200s on 2nd set, 4 200s on 3rd set and 2 200s on final setI liked the workout and my calf is feeling great since the switch to Hoka shoes.
On another note, I have been following Selection on Facebook. Patrick St Charles and Adam Levitt did very well and Jonathan Hurtado was among the final 2. This is the most dificult civilian event in the world and to see these guys in it was amazing. Great job!
Reggie runs the Ironman tomorrow. Good luck!
