When was the last time you did something for the first time?
I know that many of us, myself included, started working out not to become a better athlete necessarily, but just to get in better shape. The more I do this, though, the more I feel that inner athlete yearning to get out. What we do is a sport, and one of the most exciting ways to participate in sports is to test yourself. Of course we do this each time we work out – but did you ever want to get out and see what you could do outside of our walls?
Our newest challenge was created so you could do just that. CFLA’s next challenge is a 10k run, culminating with the Junior League of Pasadena 10k out at the Rose Bowl at the end of January. That means that everyone in the challenge will enter and run in an organized 10k – official times, t-shirts and everything – with dozens of their workout buddies. It’ll be a great opportunity to put some skin in the game and to push your limits with the support of the people you train with every day. And for anyone with travel plans over the holidays, you can to continue to use this as a training tool when you’re away from the gym!
Everyone is invited to participate, but especially those who have never entered a race or one of our challenges before. Ask yourself, when was the last time you did something for the first time?
“Beyond the very extreme of fatigue and distress, we may find amounts of ease and power we never dreamed ourselves to own; sources of strength never taxed at all because we never push through the obstruction.”
– William James, American psychologist and philosopher
