It was truly a gloom fest at Davis Park this morning. Dense fog and a light mist in the air greeted YHC upon his 515 arrival. Football mumblechatter and post- weekend groans filled the air as the Pax ‘cheerfully’ arrived. YHC began the morning from Nelson Mandela: Don’t judge me by my success, rather, by how many times I fell and rose again…

Back to Mandela…Do we rate ourselves solely on achievements— and likewise thrash ourselves in failure? Several of us ran the Spartan yesterday— and failed miserably on several obstacles. Let me suggest that we were all winners by simply posting in competition.  Mandela also said, “Forget the past”. How well do we do that? LETS ALL BE MORE FORGETFUL TODAY!!
