Even more, we stand in awe of the company of people who showed up this weekend to move something and hit a PR. The true value of a pilgrimage is measured by the effort and sacrifice required. Westside isn't some stale Hall of Fame or dusty museum. We would like to commend all those who showed up to help demonstrate that to the world.
It started Friday morning with this big guy who couldn't fit a wristband. Right after him was this high school kid; it didn't stop there, we had 21 PR's Friday. It was incredible, every hour's group had at least one person trying for a lifetime best lift. Saturday was even better, we ended up with 27 PR's. There were even four more on Sunday from some people who just couldn't leave without getting one. People of every size and shape came here to make their best effort. We are thankful to have been here to see it.
But it wasn't just the effort in the gym we appreciate and value. So many people came from so far away. It is humbling to be the focus of so many positive thoughts and good feelings. Many of our visitors this weekend were just glad to be here. It is a privilege to host someone at a place which is so special to them. We would like to thank all of you for coming.
