Every Dog Has His Day

The other day, I saw a tee shirt on a fellow member of CrossFit that boldly stated “Run Faster Than A Lifter, Lift More Than A Runner” (or something to that effect).

Time was………

Here’s a random one: can we be nostalgic for a time that we never knew? I would argue that this is a completely possible scenario, one that I am guilty of engaging in from time to time.
