10 Olympic Lessons

Say what you will about their cooking, the British certainly know how to throw a party! Team Phenix has thoroughly enjoyed "participating" in the summer games, and we've learned a few things along the way.  I wonder if any of these have come up in your home.

 1. Competition can be fun in almost any area of life.

What a great way to close out the summer.  Hopefully your country's athletes have made you proud.  The past 17 days inspire me to embrace my fellow man as well as hit the gym!

Well done London.  Thanks for having us!
