All week long there has been an onslaught of information flowing about the first Thanksgiving in the United States. Honestly, when YHC moved to the commonwealth of VA from the great commonwealth of Massachusetts, I had no idea there was any sort of controversy around this. Well, after living in VA for 33 years, I am more than aware that the majority of folks in VA think that the first Thanksgiving was in VA.
I have done my research, looked at all the information, run the appropriate regression models and determined with statistical certainty that the answer does not really matter. What matters is the act of giving thanks and looking around yourself and realizing how truly blessed we are. It is easy in this current environment and culture to look at what we don’t have and take for granted what we do have. I had the unique opportunity this year to travel to a part of the world (Ghana in Africa) that shines a spotlight on what little things we have that are taken for granted (clean water, sanitations systems, roads, etc).

Lots of mumble chatter around the circle today. As the Q of a group of 38 people, it is very difficult to follow the discourse. Chime in below if anything was said that needs to be shared.
Great to see folks from all around the RVA out there today. One of the negative implications of our growth in RVA is that its now nearly impossible (see Upchuck, Lab Rat, and others who are hitting every AO) to hit every AO and to see all our brothers .
Big thanks today to Hardwood who provided the refreshments post work out. Tclaps brother.
Good luck to all that are running Thanksgiving runs today.
