Great to be back at Sparta this morning. It’s been way too long. We sold our house ~0.5miles away from Sedgefield Middle this spring and took on the task of renovating an old house near South Park mall. In the meantime we lived in a rental out in Sherwood Forest and I spent the past 4mo or so hanging with the Cotswold crew. Was nice to meet some new people, but so great to be back with the Sparta crew. Sparta was my favorite work out for the better part of the past 4 years and this morning reminded me why. Not sure if it’s b/c it’s on Friday and everyone is just happier with the weekend on the horizon or that this group of men has been so consistent for so long we can have intimate conversations. The chatter this morning was off the charts as it often is at Sparta. Unfortunately, most of it happened during mary and I was trying to keep cadence so I didn’t catch much of it. Sounded like some really deep conversation which included calamine lotion and doobie’s balls… not really sure how that conversation got started but it sounded like some important stuff. Other thing that makes Sparta so great is the surroundings. There are so many options. Tons of hills, parking decks, parks, a track, the Sparta wall all easily within striking distance. I decided to go for a few of my favorites that I’ve missed so dearly… Waverly hill, Mega Deck and Dead Presidents hill. Got them all in the allotted time despite several doubters. Love being back at Sparta and I’m fired up to be a regular again.
