“Have 3 beers” (KK wod-date 3.7.2)

If you are following our programming you know that today we ran hill sprints. Specifically, the “Franklin Hill Mashup.” The interesting thing about programming, coaching and leading a community of people onto the hill 3-4 times a cycle (in my view not enough…) is that there is often a general conflict between the irrefutable POSITIVE […]

Bigger than ego
