FIVE RANDOM THOUGHTS for the morning: common sense, wounded warriors and compression clothing

This September, I completed the toughmudder course in Austin, Texas.  I can honestly say that it was the most physically demanding challenge that I’ve ever voluntarily undertaken. I chipped a tooth, I’m still sore, and to this day I’m continuing to find leftover dirt and mud in remote places on my body that I never knew existed.  This is probably an indication that I lack judgment and common sense.

Toughmudder was my first introduction to the Wounded Warrior Project.  From what I’ve read and heard, the organization is a top notch charity that really does a great job of helping those who truly deserve our help.  The organization is featured in a number of articles and videos on the web.

Also, if you’re a fan of Under Armour, you probably already know that it has a line of products dedicated to the Wounded Warrior Project.  They’re also offering this gift set for wounded veterans, and if you’re looking to make a donation you may find that this package gives you more bang-for-your-buck.  And no, I don’t get a commission if you donate or purchase anything – I just think that it’s a heck of a good cause that deserves as much awareness as possible.

Speaking of Under Armour, I really wish some folks – and you know exactly who you are – would use a little bit of discretion when purchasing and wearing compression or fitted exercise gear.

Never underestimate the motivational quality of the right song at the right time.  If you’re looking for a little bit of meaningful inspiration this weekend, you may want to check this out.
