To celebrate Disco Ball’s 200th post I decided to bring the party to where it all began for a couple of us. We ran the trail through Electric Park up to Settler’s Park where Sparkler took my truck full of everyone’s coupons and parked. He ran the reverse route and met us near the Flag pole in Electric Park. We grabbed our coupons from the bed of the truck and took them under the OG Colosseum Amphitheater. We did a 30 min tabata workout with 80 seconds of exercise and 10 seconds of rest in between.

CoT: Forgiveness is for the person forgiving more so than the person forgiven.

“I remember Christian teachers telling me long ago that I must hate a bad man’s actions but not hate the bad man: or, as they would say, hate the sin but not the sinner. …I used to think this a silly, straw-splitting distinction: how could you hate what a man did and not hate the man? But years later it occurred to me that there was one man to whom I had been doing this all my life — namely myself. However much I might dislike my own cowardice or conceit or greed, I went on loving myself. There had never been the slightest difficulty about it. In fact the very reason why I hated the things was that I loved the man. Just because I loved myself, I was sorry to find that I was the sort of man who did those things.”

-C. S. Lewis-
