Don’t let the name fool you, Hell Week III Parks Unknown was anything but hell. The parks new, the workouts intense, and the bonds strong. You could pay $200 bucks for some intense Groupon boot camp, but I promise that this free week of fitness paid so much more than physical dividends. Scrolling social media hours after the workouts, there were messages of new found friendships, humans believing in themselves again, and a burn that felt “oh so good”. The week concluded with a long overdue reunion and a bittersweet retirement.
