One of my former coaches sent me a picture of a post-it note I once left on her desk as a player. It simply reads, “It is a beautiful day for lacrosse,” and has my signed name. Over 13 years later, it’s still with her, now framed on a new desk at another program.

RTD Dan Witmer: It's All In the Cradle
Although it wasn’t exactly planned, I’ve taken a ten-day break from writing my RTD blog. I spent a fantastic week camping in the Adirondacks, sharing a campsite with Brian (and his ubiquitous van), and re-creating memories from my youth with my three brothers, an uncle, and five cousins – along with some of their family members. It was awesome. It's All In the Cradle.
