Hey team! We made it through Jeep Fest and seeing our place in the background of a number of pictures was really surreal. Each and every one of you have been an integral part of creating The Standard’s experience, so thanks for being great human beings, challenging yourselves, and encouraging your friends to do the same. It was a reflective humbling weekend for me in that way.
It’s also been a really hard season for a number of our friends. Some of you know what I’m talking about and many of you are likely insulated from it, but suffice it to say there are significant struggles happening inside our walls. For instance, Angie had a major procedure this week in Ann Arbor where they removed a 3lb mass and 4 herniated discs from her neck. She’s in great spirits, but the recovery process will be intense. These are opportunities to come alongside our friends and show that we care and have their best interests in mind, so if you’d like to know more of what’s going on, please talk to me (Ben). If you’d like to contribute a few dollars, I’ll have a place to do that at the entry area’s shelves or you can venmo me (@thestandardtoledo). If you’d like to write a card, you can do that as well, just put it in the box on the shelves. Everyone goes through tough experiences in life, we practice doing that on a small scale each day, but sometimes you absolutely need people. Let’s be those people.
NO ON-SITE SATURDAY CLASS THIS 8/14!!
We’re going to take our fitness outside the gym and over to Eastern Community YMCA! We’ll be working through a fun 4-teammate partner WOD using their outdoor pool before it closes for the season. Get your friends together now and plan to attend! No open gym, no gym, just that workout over in Oregon. It’s going to be a fun time. Oh… if you can’t swim, no worries, as always, we have a substitution that makes sure everyone gets to play. 🙂
