WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID SOMETHING DIFFICULT...
That question inspired Denise Paul and three of her friends to join No Boundaries a few years ago. Before embarking on this adventure, she had never run more than a quarter mile. She categorized herself as "not a runner", but she wanted to challenge herself.
She followed the training program, did her "homework" and 10-weeks later she conquered the Mitten Run 5k - without walking! Imagine how satisfyingly awesome it was for Denise to be able to answer the question that started it all in one simple word: "Today".
I believe that life is what we make of it. Ultimately it is up to us to charter our course. We can let the bumps and valleys of life get in the way of our dreams or we can do something about it.
We are surrounded by opportunities for happiness and adventure, but oftentimes we choose to ignore the invitation because it would mean leaving the comfort zone of our daily routine. We might have to wake up earlier, brave the cold, take the stairs, eat more vegetables or celebrate happy hour in a gym instead of at the local bar. Usually it requires a little discomfort, a lot of sweat and exiting life's expressway. But almost always, it is totally worth it.
If you need more inspiration to make a change in your life, check out this fun clip from The North Face that poses the question "When's the last time you just stopped...and went?".
If you were given the choice to go on with your normal day or go on an epic adventure, would you?
If you were given the opportunity to get healthier, learn to run - or to run further, faster, or just enjoy it more - would you?
The choice is yours. Join us in 2019. Do something difficult...on purpose!
