Last night I played dodgeball with a 6 foot 3, 308 pound NFL defensive tackle.

Notice I said "with" not "against". I'm not that stupid. We put all the 7 and 8 year olds on the other team and me and Antwan Lake handed it to 'em. Well, ok to be honest the kids actually beat us a couple of times.

My first shift at the gym was a lot of fun. I shadowed a kids' cardio class and a weight lifting class that I'll be teaching soon. The gym is still relatively new (they opened in January, but had their grand opening this past Saturday) so the classes are small. Which is nice for me just starting out. I'll be able to work with a small group of kids and adjust as the class size grows. Which it hopefully will or this will be a short-lived position.

After the classes we had 45 minutes of dodgeball, which the kids just love. And even though we don't have to play, most of the staff joined in including Antwan who owns the gym along with his fiance.

I'm really looking forward to teaching the classes and already started coming up with ideas last night for games and activities I could use. I'm still looking for something else to get more hours, but this should be a lot of fun for a few hours a week!

Does Antwan's fiance know that Antwan owns him? That sounds like a messed up relationship.

PS, I thought you were doing like exercise video games? Was the weight lifting class on Wii? I bet it's a lot easier than real weight lifting.

That sounds so fun!

Last night I had a dream that I had a dog. A big, ugly dog. It wasn't a nightmare so that leads me to only one conclusion: I need more Kona pictures.
