Strength, Speed, and Heart

My Fellow Lactic Loving Beasts,

I hope you can make it out to Tomball (Important Info LINK – directions/parking/heat/event timeline) to support Team Atomic.  Our team has worked hard and gone to dark places in preparation for this weekend. I am very proud of each and every one of these talented athletes; for each have made significant sacrifices and are clearly committed to representing ACF in the greatest capacity.  The rewards of watching the team grow and compete are immeasurable.  I love the message of the Nike ad below. While our team is no favorite to advance, we have passion and we love to compete. Expect the unexpected.

Work hard this weekend Team Atomic, and you never know what may become history….you never know.

~Coach Jim

    I hear ya, Speedy J. Sometimes you just gotta cuss. Not being a big cusser in the first place, it emphasizes and reveals my passion when I do.
    So, even though WE may not be the favorites this weekend, damn it, make the “favorites” EARN that shit!

    In the movie, it was the “Black Horse Jason” who won the fittest person title at the end… So you never know 🙂
    but you guys are brave enough to compete, that already earned my respect 🙂
