These are some of my best friends, but also my extended family. Dave Shephard and Annie Olson are closer to me than my actual siblings. They’re both extremely giving with their time and energy, but some of the most interesting people I’ve had the opportunity to meet in my adult life. I remember doing this workout with these guys last summer and it kicked my ass. Dave always pushed me to go past the point of “If I quit here I’m okay with that”. He’s wicked smart and is busy getting an MBA at Harvard Business School, but I can’t wait until he comes back in a year and a half.
And Annie…. A whole other level of special person. I’m lucky to call her my friend.
