F3 8/14/21 

18 of us enjoyed a late summer Saturday morning workout HardNocs in Nocatee. We got to know each other better, welcomed an FNG–Upchuck–named after breaking the all-time record for merlot-splashing (6 times by my last count), and we finished with football drills using F3 exercises as penalties for dropped passes, then an ultimate football game. Back at the COT, as the rain began, we each shared something we learned today about a fellow HIM.

Quote on the health benefits of friendship:

“The most powerful thing you can do to add healthy years is to curate your immediate social network. In general, you want friends with whom you can have a meaningful conversation. You can call them on a bad day and they will care. Your group of friends are better than any drug or anti-aging supplement, and will do more for you than just about anything.”
