Ning was kind enough to write this fantastic guest post for David’s birthday:
This was written when David was away on a business trip. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. But I assure you that you won’t find any discrepancies when you meet him in person.
David is shy, quick-witted and never imposes his agenda on anyone. He is the one who always let everybody else pick first and takes whatever is leftover. (Note: Does not apply to dating.) Five months ago, he was talked into Crossfit by me, after I learned that friend of a friend puked after her first CrossFit class =D At the gym, David loves box jumps, hates pull-ups and was able to do pistols after 3 months of CrossFit.
Outside the gym, he is known to his friends as a die-hard sports fan, a music collector and a living movie encyclopedia. He is a loyal fan of Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and 76ers, but not from Philadelphia. He has both Aaron Rodgers and Arian Foster on one of his Fantasy Football teams. He plays pick-up basketball every week (ask
him about time and location if you are interested). His music collection can play 3 months nonstop, no repeat. Oh, and he makes his little sister a music CD every time he sees her.
Sure David is a sweetheart. But he is also very competitive. You will notice that he runs faster if someone is ahead of him. And you may have heard the following exchange at the end of a workout:
– Ruth: “David, how many reps did you get?”
– David: “5”
– Ruth: “Ning, how many reps did you get?”
– Ning: “9”
– David: “Oh, I actually got 10.”
So, game on, David. And happy birthday!
