COT : Closed w/ congrats to the crew for starting the week on a really hard day. These IPC’s are no joke and gave thanks to RA as he was hustling off to the next AO to help proctor … the man, injured as he may be, gave up his morning to help us all keep track of time and to push us further out of our comfort zone.

Closing message – gave a reflection on my recent long run this weekend. Mileage is climbing now that I am about 5-6 weeks away from a marathon. I said – when you are setting out to do something hard, start out by going INTO the wind … so that when you meet the half way point and turn around, you have the breeze and momentum to push you to the end.

We all started the day/started the week doing something well outside our comfort zone. In my own mind-space, I grumbled a little bit, but was able to clear my mind to attack today’s challenges head-on. Keep moving forward! /Kodak Out.
