Devo: YHC talked about what F3 has meant to me. I had several life changes going on around a year and half ago. I had recently given up drinking and found out we were expecting our first child. I didn’t realize until I gave up drinking that even though I only drank on the weekends (sometimes only once a weekend) I was using it as an outlet. It was a stress reliever and a way to escape problems (especially work problems). Without drinking, several people close to me kept telling me I needed another outlet, but I didn’t listen. I let the issues I had at work plague me and dwelled on them constantly. I was not working out at all and was very anxious. This anxiety led to depression, and it took me almost 6 months after I gave up drinking to show up at F3. I had been before in Mount Pleasant (where I got my awesome name), but it had been a few years. I knew F3 was out there, I was just stuck in a rut. F3 turned out to be exactly what I needed. The exercise has been a great stress relief, and the comradery has been incredible. F3 is invaluable and has helped me beat depression.
Moleskin: There wasn’t a lot of mumble chatter this morning. Let’s just say the Farmer’s Carry Dora wasn’t a crowd favorite.
