CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Soulja Boy (probably true) shared once the Man in the Area speech exert from Teddy Roosevelt.  I ran back into this recently and have been using it as encouraging words especially after spending a week out of state with my extended family.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

MOLESKIN:
Looking forward to the next year! Although the workout was solo, the rucking was well enjoyed, weather was perfect!
