    The blisters on my thumbs from this morning's workout are starting to look like a 6th finger on each hand.

    Thanks Sensei. Haha. you dont have to worry about the tickets. i have to work on saturday night so i can not attend the fight. so i will just know in my own mind that those tickets should of been mine. haha. hopefully you will get the tickets because that was a good plan.

    Wheew…..saved yourself there Zach….I just called Vitto and Pauly off. lol. What time you doing the WOD tomorrow? It'll be good to push each other.

  4. Sensei says:

    Zach, Just so you know. I've employed a couple of "hired goons" to take pool cues to your knees so that I don't have competition for tomorrows WOD and getting those fight tickets. Nothing personal brother….just has to be done HA HA! 🙂

    To all, don't think that I'll be able to make it in today…it's been a hectic week at the Nix house hold. I wanted to first say thanks to Tony, Casey, Darren, Josh, Jules, and ThunderLips. Best Gym I've ever been to (no shit, duh) and it's ya'll that make it happen every day (almost). I've never regreted one min of training at the gym. To all the others, you know who you are…if there was ever a gym that was a team, this is it. Its been awesome and I'll miss it. Maybe I'll be back next summer, maybe I won't, never know, but I finally know what the hell I'm doing in physical training and diet. Thanks to Crossfit Wilmington.
    Semper Fi, NIX.
