Why do you spend so much time training in the gym? My answer - to enjoy the countless hours and infinite adventures life has to offer outside of the gym!
I was recently in Kauai, Hawaii with my wife Julia to celebrate the marriage of two of our own - Chris Lennertz and Shannon Madden. We went on the kayak / hike adventure trip up the Wailiea River. After being out about 5 hours that day, almost all of the others on the trip with us were talking about how sore they were and how hard it was. Funny, that thought never occurred to me - and after asking Chris and Shannon, not to them either. Training pays off in many ways - this is just one of them...
5 rounds for time:
