Those that have been anxiously (or not so much) for the continuation of this piece, here you are!
On the 18th of August, shirts arrived and the badges were distributed. It did my heart good to see so many people wanting to dawn the First XV badge and I’m so glad to see everyone still wearing their shirts proudly.
On the 23rd of August we said good luck to Max Lyons as he departed for college to swim at Franklin and Marshall. Max worked so hard and I am proud to see him take his swimming to the next level at college.
On the 2nd we said good-bye to longtime client and strength camper Meredith. She came in as one of those ladies that didn’t think lifting was for her and left very much embracing the idea of picking up heavy things. I still think I can feel my ears buzzing with Meredith cursing my names as she does her own routine with what she learned at First XV.
First XV went outside with MOMS of Brookline on the 15th of September. The group was gracious enough to let me run a little workout in the park and talk a little bit about what strength training can do for them and how it can be worked into their routines.
Come back next time as we wrap things up with October to December (brr).
