  1. Awesome photos. I wouldn’t actually want a quad that big, but the leg on that bodybuilder is impressive!

  2. Amazing photos. I have no reason to complain, ever.

  3. Thanks for sharing gents! Great pics, that make me think of what I think is my limit. I know in my head I can go further than I think I can. Its making that translate to real life that matters! Ask Todd about ESOAL

  4. It’s so awesome to see how happy those little boys are in that picture with the 3 of them! Them and their pudgy little bellies. lol.

    The world wealth calculator is pretty scary to think about. It’s amazing how much we take for granted and how truly spoiled we all are. Even the people that think they’re sacrificing or don’t have much here in the US have far more than most in this world could dream of having.

  5. Very encouraging. They make me feel so small. Thank you.

  6. Thank you so much for that. I must have stumbled across your blog (well RFI got me here) for a reason because I really needed that today!

  7. The picture of the soldier hugging his baby made me cry… being a mom messes with your hormones!
