Got Muscle Milk?

I made it to the pool this morning despite a personal battle with getting my tired ass out the door.  As I walked out the door I grabbed a Clif MOJO bar and a Muscle Milk so I could fuel up post workout.

I use the colder weather as my personal refrigerator and leave my Muscle Milk on my windshield to stay cold.

I like going to the YMCA.  The competition pool is kept around 81 degrees with eight lanes.  My membership also allows me to use Y facilities all around the country when I travel.  The staff and members at a Y usually have a very positive attitude which makes traveling bearable.

I also like supporting the Mission of the Y.  Don't forget it stands for Young Men's Christian Association.  And the guiding principles support this.

On the Cleveland Y website you find the following.
  • Put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
  • Develop the total person- spirit, mind and body - through character development programs that build strong kids, strong families and strong communities.
Caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are the foundational values of all YMCA programs and services.

So why did someone decide it was okay to take my Muscle Milk this morning?  That's not a very Christian act displaying honesty or respect.

I have put drinks on my windshield numerous times.  And this is the first occasion when someone has felt the need to take my drink.

I'm not mad at all.  Just dumbfounded that someone would actually do it. 


Maybe it helped them get their Game On for the day.
