“We cannot become what we need by remaining what we are.” John C. Maxwell
This my friends is the year of the RAT. On this day in the tenth day of December, there was much to celebrate. One of our own was accomplishing a major life goal in the midst of balancing career, family and unbelievable amount of mumble chatter. 20 warriors braved the arctic tundra to dance with the polar bear.

Moleskin: Today was all about celebrating Lab Rat. This exceptional man went back to school after a 13 year hiatus to complete is Bachelors degree in Economics from VCU. YHC barely made it through with no kids, mortgage, wife or job. To complete school with a full plate of life deserves a major T-Claps.
This morning leaned towards the cooler side of the thermostat, which makes it even more impressive that 20 of the finest men in Richmond fought off the fartsack. Welcome back Wilson.
News: Swirly is planning an epic CSAUP on Jany 21st. Stay tuned for a pre-blast and start training now.
Everyone is pretty good at life when it’s easy, YHC is far more interested in the resilience of your character when it’s not.
