The Weekly Dose of Awesome

It's pretty cool when a couple works out together. I like to call them Power Couples. They motivate each other, and keep each other accountable. This Dose of Awesome's wife has already been an Awesome, and it's high time we complete the set, because this dude is the other side of the totally awesome coin. 

Marc C is a positive guy. I've never heard him once complain about the WOD - he just gets stuck in. You know how some people just really like working out? Not just because it makes them look & feel better, not just to be strong & healthy, but because they physically enjoy it? I get the impression he is that kind of person - and yet I don't hate him ;) His positive attitude and willingness to tackle anything has seen him make steady progress in class.

Marc's the first out the door for the warmup run, and is always supportive to his fellow athletes. He and Michelle were there cheering on the competitors at the Ultimate Lift Off - though I neglected to ask why he wasn't competing himself, I'm sure he had a good reason. Perhaps taking notes for 2015 ULO domination?

Michelle, you better watch out! Marc's got the eye of the tiger!
