Well, it isn’t snowing outside (yet) but it is rainy, cold, Holiday-ish, and carol-ey every where you go… the Rittenhouse Run is NEXT WEEKEND (do you have your flair/holiday sweater/elf hat picked out?) – and one other thing should be blatantly obvious: this is the time of year when most of us need to step back and be thankful for the things we have – ESPECIALLY as we run around trying to buy more of it. Sometimes in the rush our animal friends get forgotten – check out the cause behind the really cool bin that Angie is running at the front of the gym for Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society. If you love Maddox, you’ll hop over to your local grocery store and pick up some canned dog and cat food (no dry food please!), paper towels, bleach, laundry detergent or clay cat litter (non clumping) and bring it to CFCC for Angie to pick up soon. Thanks!

Everyone needs to handstand walk!

SELF-MYOFASCIAL RELEASE: Foam Roll Upper Back, 1 minute then, Lax Ball to Shoulders, between shoulder blades, hit pecs and rear delt, use a piece of PVC plus the Lax Ball to target the Upper Traps/SCM – til 10 past.
