Happy Birthday Eddie

Happy Birthday our to the "lost child of atlantis", "tai lou", "young man" and great pushmore inspiration, Eddie. Today he turns #*$%, doesn't matter, what matters is he was probably driving a car while most of you were still eating your own boogers and shitting your pants.

Despite being exposed to more oxygen than most of us, he hardly shows any sign of rust. He probably kicks most of our asses all week round. Better still he does it with such humility often sporting that cheeky grin after he just smokes, or rather bubbles your ass. If you think he is a monster on land, wait till you see him in the water. There, he unleashes the strength of the ancient lost city and authority granted to him by the almighty Poseidon, god of the sea, hence the noble name bestowed upon him by us brothers, "lost child of atlantis".

I know he is accustomed to say nice things and make it seem like it was a lot of effort but I know he does it to make us feel better. Thanks eddie for those "big brotherly" comforts, I would take that consolation anytime. The thing about eddie is he is a great motivator and encourager. Even though he knows he is better than you at something he will not withhold the resources from you, rather he will ensure he pulls you up to.

That is something I think we can learn from him. Even though crossfit can be competitive sometimes, at the heart of it, we are teammates, comrades and we are family and Eddie's our big PAPA ! Thanks for being part of Pushmore. Once again Pushmore wishes you HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Have a super one oh wise one.

Mucho Love,

John-Son and John-Hans
