Without a mind reminding it of its limits, the body discovers new sources of energy.
-Daniele Bolelli, On The Warrior’s Path
Thursday: because my work schedule is schizophrenic, I was wide awake at 4:30 am and decided to go to Seattle and see what crazy people look like. That is, people crazy enough to go to the 0600 class.
At first, the only crazy people in evidence were the blue belt cop and myself. Later, eight more crazy people trickled in, including Steve (so this is where he’s been hiding!) and Pat the Great Panda.
I spent a solid hour rolling with the blue belt cop, who is medium-sized but ALL muscle- seriously, it felt like rolling with a granite statue.
I wanted to roll with Steve, but after that, I was too tired. And getting really hungry.
