I went for a quick run in the Winsport East Lands today and got caught in a brief summer rain storm. It was fantastic and helped remind me of why I exercise (see the video below).
You see, for me (and what we coach our clients to achieve), fitness and exercise is to help me live an awesome life and enjoy all that life has to offer. A big part of this is experiencing nature and getting outside my comfort zone so I can grow as a human being.
If it looked like rain was on the horizon, most people would have skipped the workout, or found the nearest treadmill. In my opinion, that’s the wrong mindset!
I was so energized my the rain and being out in the forest that I even turned off my music and listed to the sounds of nature. It was fantastic and motivated me to shoot this short video (who says that nature and technology can’t coexist!).
Check out the video and let me know your thoughts. Am I simply different, or do other people feel the same way?
