You never cease to amaze me with your indomitable spirit and strength, both mental and physical. Keep pushing the limits and breaking new ground as you enter into a new year of life! Thank you for being my hardcore workout buddy, and more than anything else, a dear friend.


It was only fitting that we perform a "Filthy Fifty" today to commemorate this wonderful lady's 50th birthday. People scaled as necessary, and so we saw a whole spectrum of variations, ranging from "Totally Thirty-Five" to "Shitty Seventy" (yes, yours truly can testify as to the appropriateness of the latter title).
