5 for Friends 12/1/19

Quote: “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” Winston Churchill, a feeling as the days get shorter; it is often a simple reminder to know what view am I looking at the world. 

Currently reading: Extracted by R.R Haywood What can I say other than I love time travel! Because it often rides so close to being just another story, except for the science fantasy McGuffin, which can save or destroy everything that matters to the characters. A team-up story of three capable and brave in fictional British history who are extracted out of the timeline to prevent their deaths and hopefully prevent an even worst disaster. 

Article worth a read:  What I learned from my first powerlifting meet Lifehacker’s Health editor, over the last year, has become one of my favorite creators to read weekly. With this article and has been refreshing to see and be reminded of the beginner mindset and why this mindset is especially valid, as I come closer to another event and training with absolute beginners. 

Small Purchase: There is not much that comes to mind as a small purchase that has been worth sharing. With it being Thanksgiving, I am just going to note that after all the family gatherings, the most valuable investment in my week was heading up to Coolstuff Games with a friend and jumping into a 3 vs 3 Throne of Eldraine Draft. $12 that paid for 3.5hours of fun and catching up with one of my best mates.  

What am I working on:  The countdown continues as I’m delving into another Mud Run, and getting ready for the slog. So the work out of the day to ensure I am getting the explosive work in.
