Thankful, grateful and blessed for this group and the opportunity to lead.  Prayers were spoken for Pitstop and his job search.  Good Friday run organized by Haha in conjunction with Alpharetta First United Methodist Church, April 19th.  Great Truth Nugget Thursday discussion followed led by Pellets over a cup of coffee.

“Sadly, most of us give up when we’ve only given around 40 percent of our maximum effort. Even when we feel like we’ve reached our absolute limit, we still have 60 percent more to give! That’s the governor in action! Once you know that to be true, it’s simply a matter of stretching your pain tolerance, letting go of your identity and all your self-limiting stories, so you can get to 60 percent, then 80 percent and beyond without giving up. I call this The 40% Rule, and the reason it’s so powerful is that if you follow it, you will unlock your mind to new levels of performance and excellence in sports and in life, and your rewards will run far deeper than mere material success.” 

Naked-Man Moleskin:

TCLAPS to Circus and Zohan for EH’ing FNG’s and introducing them to the Rubicon this morning.  Welcome Zika (works at CDC) and Wrigley (big Cardinals fan).  Welcome back Manilla for his 2nd Rubicon post.
