Not much is as difficult as saying goodbye to friends and family when they move away.
The gym will close after the 6:30 pm class this Friday, 11/16 so Angela & Randy can host one heck of a party and say Good Bye at the gym which has been their second home, as they start a new chapter to their lives 2,900 miles away in Florida. We know that not all of our CFE members are on Facebook and if you’re not, please mark your calendar for this Friday at 7:30 pm at the gym to stop by & wish them well.
and honestly, it sounds like we’re in for one HECK of a party! Check out their posts below:
The day is fast approaching where Angela (with Randy in tow) will be departing Washington and PCSing back to Florida. Since the remaining time here is extremely limited, we hope to get everyone together to celebrate the many friendships that we’ve made here with food, fun and fellowship not to say goodbye, but to say see ya later. We hope you can all join us!
Make sure you bring your smiles Friday night (no tears) because we’ll have Blink Foto Booth on site to snap our memories thanks to the awesome recommendation from Ken & Jaime (love you guys!) You’ll get a copy of the prints and we will too to take along with us on our travels back to FL and keep with us no matter where we go. What fun! Smile!
Party Menu Plan: Plenty of H2O, wine, and beer for our Paleo and non-Paleo eating friends. Hors d’oeuvres consisting of Bacon wrapped jalapeno chicken, Cheeseburger bacon roll, “Grub” meatballs, Chicken kabobs, Burger bite sliders, Roasted sweet potato fries, Tomato bites, Bacon wrapped asparagus, Mini bacon salad bowls, Broiled salmon bites, Bacon wrapped steak bites, assorted fresh fruits and veggies, and the list goes on and on!! Plan to get your paleo grub on with plenty of good proteins (BACON!), good fats, and good carbs. As for our non-Paleo eating friends, you’ll eat so good that you’ll leave craving Paleo!
Let us know if you’d like to see something added or have any special requests. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
Randy – A man of constant support and encouragement to all of the athletes at CFE, Randy has motivated so many with his coaching techniques, sharing a unique camaraderie with Jesse and most of all, that fast smile! We’ve had two great Paleo challenges due to Randy’s leadership and he’s continued to give nutrition advice, review food logs after the Challenges for anyone at the gym who’s wanted to make a change. We’re grateful for his wisdom and experience and for the inspiration he’s been for everyone who’s learned from him and we’re richer for having known him as a coach and friend. Randy – you will be missed!
And for the woman who stole his heart, Angela,so many words to describe you – inspirational, dedicated, insightful, fun-loving and a friendship magnet – the encouragement you have unleashed on our FB page and at the gym is like having a 10 person Cheer squad in place every time you walk in the door of the gym. Your physical transformation is incredible but it is dwarfed by your amazing & giving personality.
We know that the coming days will bring many adventures for both of you personally and professionally and we wish you the best. The goodbye is only until we see you again on visits so don’t lose your way back to Washington every now and then and know you’ll both be missed.
