Out Of The Night That Covers Me  (Invictus)
William Ernest Henley  (1849-1903)

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
   Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

    lunch time WODers, I am usually back here no later than 11:30, so those of you who would like to get in earlier than 12 you are welcome to. I usually have the gym open by 5:45-5:50 in the mornings, if enough people are interested and want it, I am willing to get here as early as 5:30. I just need the feedback. Thanks. -Mike K

    Sorry to be a used car salesman, but I wanted to share this link just in case anybody is looking. My Buckhead “vacation home” is finally on the market (I live in Midtown).

    Yes, those lucky trainers assigned to the evening shift tonight do not get to go cry at the movie

    Can I just show up to the gym tonight to meet for the Invictus viewing? I haven’t signed up because I have been out of town. Have the tickets already been purchased? Is it too late for me? Help.

    first 20 get to go, last I saw there were only 5 signed up. I would suggest getting to the gym at 5.

    P.S I’m really enjoying the awkward posing in this picture…especially the placement of the hands on the shoulders.

    Leaving the office in just a few and VERY excited to shed a few tears in this movie.
    Three things: First, next Monday, we will begin a 100 day skill building challenge. It has to be something you’re not good at. For me, it’s a lot of things, but I randomly chose ring dips because I want my muscle up BAD. For you, it could HSPU or pullups if you’re having trouble stringing them together. The more people that participate, the more fun this will be. More details and rules to follow, but start giving it some thought. It does require commitment, ROB, so I’m guessing that some of you will be reticent. Don’t worry, there will be lots of moral support.
    Second, and much in the same regard, NYE is more fun the more people you know and are partying with. I bought two tix to the event Jonathan suggested today. Sign up now, while the tix are still a good price. Worth it! And, be sure to use his promotion code “JONATHAN” when you check out.

    Third, Friday we will be having the gym social hour at my house again because it’s chilly in the gym and because I need major help drinking the lifetime supply of beer that is currently in my fridge. Thanks for bringing all of that!!
    See you soon,
    MoMo

    21-15-9 HSPU,WTD. pullups. run 400M between in middle of each round: 14:51 was pissed because the dam vest kept slapping me in the back, so stringing multiple kipping pullups together sucked. I used 50lb, but wish I had lightened up significantly and just done strict pullups so i could have pushed harder. Lesson learned-put less weight on back of the vest!
    Any body that wants to do fran say, this weekend let me know, i’d like some company.
