There comes a time of year (usually Thanksgiving in particular) when folks express their gratitude for one another, their health, their family, friends, and so much more. But why should we limit this to just once a year? Deep question, right? Anyways, I do want to express my sincere gratitude for everyone in this community – whether it’s right here in Los Angeles or around the country or world. Thank you for waking up early, putting in effort, smiles, encouragement, sharing support inside and outside the workouts. Thank you for providing a safe space, for accepting people for who they are, for challenging people to learn, grow, and have some fun.
I have started to think about where I’ve been in the last year. As a matter of fact I’m coming up on one year of co-leading this group in LA and it’s amazing how the time has both moved so slowly and also flown by. To all the new folks who have started to find us in Griffith and around the city, welcome! To the friends we have all made over the last few weeks, months, and years, thank you for being here. We’ve all had ups and downs and likely will continue to have ups and downs. That’s life for ya. But despite it all, this community and this tribe has been there. We’re out there every Wednesday at Griffith and Friday around the city. There are groups around the country and world out there working out and building a community. Knowing that it’s consistent and that we’ll be there no matter what, means a lot.
I mentioned this at the beginning of the month but will say it again – try to reflect each day about something that you are grateful for. We went around in a circle this morning during the burnout and I realized there are so many things that we don’t even consider but should! Anyways, food for thought and now onto the announcements, which I hyped up so much this morning (more so because of the details)
FUN STUFF (aka announcements)
Free-Range Turkey Trot – TOMORROW 8am meeting at the Autry Musem
Friday 11/23 – California Incline 6am. Tracker HERE with exact pin. Might want to use a desktop/laptop to check this out because we don’t exactly know what’s happening on mobile…
BUFFFFFS – Those neck warmer/head things that you see people wearing? Yep, it’s time to put in an order. Please fill your name out HERE and how many you would like to order. They are $5 and you can Venmo me (@kaitlin-fuelling) or give me cash at the workout. We don’t know the design and we don’t know when they are arriving. SUBMIT BY 11/26!!!
SOCIAL MEDIA (more importantly Instagram)
LAX Social Page – Check out the LAX Social Facebook Page herewhere people share free events, make announcements, and give shout outs to other tribe members outside of the workouts.
Fun Fact: Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird, not the eagle. Gobble gobble.Share via socials:
