I had the joy to join 11 other men for a morning of fun at ManU. Conditions were perfect (65 and no rain). Even though I came in on two wheels with 30 seconds to spare, we got into it quickly. Disclaimer was disclaimed and we were off. Here’s what we did.

Considering all the rain we’ve had this year, I felt it appropriate to resurrect the “ark loader” workout from several years back. Thanks for the opportunity to lead this morning Socrates. It was an honor to spend the morning with so many #HIM. Thank you also for your year plus leadership at ManU. Looking forward to seeing Triad take the reigns and put his stamp on the site as well.

Today’s workout was a reminder to take time to be silly every now and then. Its okay to act like a kid sometimes. As the great Ferris Bueller said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” So take the time between Zoom meetings and go outside today and play. Reclaim that child-like joy and have fun. Life is too short to not enjoy it.
