One of the best training partners I ever had was a man old enough to be my father - Bob was a Marine and a Vietnam War veteran. He never missed a training session. He never skipped a set. And he never, ever complained about training aches and pains. I think the closest thing I ever heard him say what could have been construed as a mild complaint was "I think I'll take an extra 'Aleve' tonight." I try to remember him as I hobble around, feeling sorry for myself.
This video has made the rounds in blog-land, but I thought it was nice. It gave me some new warm-fuzzies towards The Corp and even though I'm a Pride fan, the UFC as well.
