I'm Thinking Of A Number Between One And A Million.
Can You Guess What It Is? Many Of Us Walk Around With A
Dollar Amount In Our Heads - An Amount That, If We Had It,
Would Make Us Feel Prosperous, Secure, And Successful.
It May Flucuate Week To Week Or Year To Year. It May
Be Uncounscious Or It May Be Thought Out, As In The Case
Of Comedian Jim Carrey Who, Before Came Famous, Buried
His Father With A Check For Ten Million Dollars As A
Promise To Himself And A Tribute To His Dad. There Is
Nothing At All Wrong With The Dollar Amount You Have
In Your Mind. Making Plans, Relishing Future Success &
Working Toward A Goal Are All Worthy And Exciting
Endeavors. But, We Have To Be Careful Of Welding Our
Whole Existence To That Monetary Goal. We Have To Keep
In Mind That We Are Not On This Earth To Give Our
Money A Great Life Piling Up In The Bank; The Money
Is Here To Help Us Live Better & Help Those Around Us.
If We Can Keep That Reminder With Us Every Time We
Imagine Our Future Fortunes, The Amounts We Actually
Have And The Ones We Imagine We Might Have One Day
Can Change, But The Feeling Of Prosperity And
Contentment Will Be The Same, And That's What Counts.
"No Man's Fortune Can Be An End Worthy Of His Being"

Did You Know That In The United States More People Go
Home For Thanksgiving Than For Christmas? And Yet,
No Presents Are Exchanged. It Is Simply A Time To Return
Home And Share A Meal, Conversation, Time With Close
Family. Family And Friends Are Often Such An Accepted
Part Of Our Lives That We Forget To Give Thanks For
Them, Their Support, Annoying Habbits And Sometimes
Unsolicited Interference & Advice. Finding Ways To
Value & Appreciate These Relationships And Learn
To Interact Appropriately With Others Are Important
Elements In Becoming A Functioning Human Being
While Living A Satisfyingn And Successful Life In The
Big Wide World Away From Home & Familiar
Surroundings. Many Of Us Compare Ourselves To
Others. We May See Other People Luxurious Homes,
Wonderful Clothes, Regular Holidays To Exotic
Locations, And Much More. But Those People May
Well Wish They Spent Less Time At Work & More
Time Together As A Family. Being Appreciative Of
What We Have Grounds Us And Reminds Us What
The Important Things Really Are.
Happy Thanksgiving 2013 #Blessings

When Most People Think Of Randalls They Think Groceries.
I Think of a man I met named David Randall. I had the
privilege of meeting David at Brazosport CrossFit sometime
early this year. I couldn't tell you how the training session started,
but I can tell you David was my partner during a team WOD
as we competed against the owners. When we began to
lock the gym I noticed there weren't any vehicles in the parking
lot, so I asked David if he needed a ride. "No thank you", he replied.
He was only in town for a few days before he went back
off shore again. He said he was staying in a hotel not too far &
he would be fine jogging back. Although David didn't share too
much about his life I connected with the sense of just
"Traveling Through". I recieved a message from David
earlier today & would like to share it. Congrats on your
new PR of snatch brother & stay blessed as you continue on
your journey. #UGL #MoreThanABrand #Community #Family
hey brotha. You need to know that your last video post, to me, was awesome. Because I believe one should tell others when they have made a difference... Here I go. Thank for your coaching me that one time we WODED. You went over the squat snatch with me. Well today I PR 205 for three unbroken. Thank you.

We All Know There Are Only 24 Hours In A Day
And 7 Days In A Week. I Feel Like Myself & Everyone Involved
With The 2012 Texas Crossfit Shootout Spent About 25 Hours
A Day And 8 Days A Week To Make Sure This Event
Was Ran As Close To Perfect As You Can Get. I Knew
That This Event Would Not Only Give Me A Chance To
Bring People Together, But Allow People To Experience A Brief
Moment Of What My Life Consist Of On A Day-2-Day Basis.
I'm Thankful For Everyone Who Made This Event Possible
And I Greatly Appreciate All The Support From The CrossFit
