To the guy who was at the indoor cycling class, working out beside my girlfriend on Thursday. Name of Jesse. No, I don't climb "with" Will Gadd. Apparently she told you I do that. I am embarrassed.

A buddy and I hired Will Gadd to tune up our ice climbing technique last year. It was awesome, eye opening, and well worth it. A super fun day, and I'm a better ice climber for it. BUT, I paid. To me, and probably to you, this is not climbing "with" Will Gadd.

Don't hold this against Angela. She's great. And please, if she thinks I climb "with" Will Gadd, don't tell her otherwise.

It's still only January and I bet Greg's post wins the "most honest use of social media" award for 2017. wink
