Below is a little goodbye to everyone from Coach Derek D.
As most of you don’t know(because 95% of what comes out of my mouth is idiotic nonsense) I’m making the move to San Diego and I leave on Tuesday 9/25. If anyone is in the bay area look me up firstname.lastname@example.org!
That being said, I wanted to say bye to some of the best workout partners I’ve ever had. All of you have changed the way I view fitness and working out. It was a pleasure coaching and learning with all of you. On Friday I’m having a little going away shindig at Kangaroo and Kiwi in Ballard. I should be there around 9:30 or 10 so everyone should come have a beer or 7 with me if you can make it. If not I will hold a grudge that will make Maximus Decimus Meridius roll over in his grave….. I kid, I kid. I would have liked to have been in everyday this last week but was struck with a neck kink injury(from drying my hair...seriously) by karma after giving Marcos crap. Going to be in Monday evening for one final workout so hope to see you all!
A few personal notes to add just in case I don’t see a few of you:
DK – liking froyo doesn’t mean you’re washed up
Joey – Yes I know you’re older than me and still smoke me every workout, but thanks for the reminders
Scott W – no straight male should have such a perfectly manicured beard
Andrew – Please ignore the above invite (I hold inclusion grudges)
Matt G – It’s not fun talking smack when your intended target only replies with smirks and performance
Kevin G – please notify me if you find a solution to the excessive sit-up butt rash
Beth – summersaults are dumb, but glitter is fun
Val – If I ever get married you can count on me calling you to help me find my wedding ring when (not if) I lose it
Ron O – I’d like to assure you that persecuting the aesthetically pleasing is a type of racism
That about does it. I love you all. It’s not good bye….. It’s I’ll see ya later.
