CoT: My first post was 7/17/20. Opening day of the Colosseum in its original location. FNG’s that day were: Me, Disco Ball, Better Call Saul, Ron Swanson & Bone Spur. Dilly Dilly was Q. After the BC I talked to Dilly Dilly and explained that I wouldn’t be able to stick around forever. I leave for work at 5:30am and the only reason I was able to get there was because I was laid off due to COVID-19. I posted on and off for a few months but never really got hooked. I liked the idea…I just never wanted to fall in love with something I knew was temporary. Months went by and I was still out of a job. That led me to open my own Remodeling company and a lot of stress & laziness kept me out of the gloom.

Gopher reached out to me during Reindeer games and I was fully on board with the team. I was set. Monday morning Run Club @ the Colosseum (Spirit was Q) I was set. Fully into it, ready to post a ton & help my team. I was cooking during RC way out in front of the group. I misunderstood Spirit’s direction and ran into Mather’s Woods where I rolled my ankle really bad. I limped about a quarter of a mile back with Gopher & Den Mother had to pick me up in his car to bring me back to the flags. For the first time I really wanted to be there and it was taken from me. I pushed myself back early and posted as much as humanly possible with a bum leg. At the awards zoom meeting Gopher said it best… “I’d hate to say it, but I wish Bob Villa got hurt sooner”.
Fast forward a little to Disco Ball’s 100th post. I was completing a 6 pack that day and found out there was a way to track how many posts you’ve done. That morning I quickly reached out to Sparkler to find out where I was. If Disco Ball was at 100… I wonder if I am at 75 or 80.

53

53 is a number that I am reminded of every time I’m having a hard day in the gloom. 53 is always looking at me.

Disco ball is faster, stronger & more mentally tough than me. Is it any wonder?!? He basically was posting DOUBLE what I was! Of course he’s doing better.

53 is my failure looking at me right in the face.

My biggest enemy is me, & even I can’t stop me now. One day I’ll have to go back to work. But, that’s not today & it’s not tomorrow. So, tomorrow will be my 101st post. Let’s keep accelerating!
