Calling all Arena Ready Alumni!

You know who you are.  You used to train here and we all loved you very dearly - and then at some point you broke my heart and VIOLATED THE ARENA READY MORATORIUM for some silly high paying job, or pretentious grad school, or to make a new life whatever the heck that means - so now you (presumably) live happily ever after in some strange land where Chinese food means a trip to Panda Express, and your coffee is served to you by smiley people and not mustached art students who are silently judging you through their non-prescription Warby Parkers. 

WELL GOOD FOR YOU.  I'M HAPPY FOR YOU, REALLY I AM.

Anyhow, we'd love to see you this Saturday, December 3rd, at Arena Ready for our annual Holiday Party (click for the details).  So please, if it's possible, come on by your old stomping grounds and hang out with some of your old AR swolemates - you can tell us over a drink and some bites how amazing it is that you now have 5 bedrooms and a pool, or that your cohort is so smart that they're developing the Uber of marijuana.  You can even tease me about how you think I wouldn't be able to swim in the deep end of your pool - it's OK, I deserve it.

Oh, and I'm kidding about the "pretentious" part above, I hope you all know that.  I kid because I care.  Now get your butts over here this Saturday and say hello to everyone who misses you.
