COT: Gratitude for all the down range pax who made the trip to kick things off right in LaGrange. Focus on fellowship. Men need other men in their lives to grow stronger and be better men. Evidenced by the way we all pushed each other this morning. Let’s bring that same love we felt today out into the community for all those we touch every day.
