Saturday 180512 – Jack

From Brian: Oh hey guys, zup?

So Dan and I are hanging up the spurs on the management of PCF, but you guys are in good hands, because a) all of our full time coaches and staff are staying in place and b) our former intern good friend Andrew Killion of District CrossFit is taking over ownership responsibilities.

Now what, praytell, are “ownership responsibilities” you might ask?

Well Wolf, thank you for asking that question, it’s great to be here in Iowa — GO HAWKEYES!.

[Ahem]….“Owner responsibilities” as I understand them are:

1) Bring tequila to parties.
2) Repeat as necessary.

And while all of you know me as modest to the point of distraction, I have to say I crushed that shit for almost 10 years [envision me with determined thumb point with slight underbite/squint here].

Now in talking to Andrew during this transition, it seems there are other things that I may have wanted to do to run a “successful business”. What he doesn’t understand is that while running a “successful business” is great, would that get you the occasional free sample at Lyon Hall? No sir, as I understand the way that system works it was only I that could get a small pour of beer from the tap to try before paying full price for a pint – so joke’s on you there buddy with your “responsible business practices” or “taking care of your staff and customers”.

Anyway, so thanks for the memories, shout out to Dan for not killing me. Thx to Gretchen, Colin and LJ for putting up with my inane and too frequent “meetings”/trying out my new standup material. Thx to Liz, Jen, RJP for all the backend support that was underpaid and underappreciated. Thx to all the coaches we’ve had over the years who are too many to mention and who are probably confused by the whole idea of “leadership” now as it shouldn’t usually involve that much drinking.

Anyway, FITNESS!! #hashtag
