Exploring an ancient land in Peru, and giving thanks to those who protect the True North, Strong, and Free 🙂 #CanadaStrong
My bucket list motivated me to try new things, meet new people, and find new ways to educate myself and accomplish my own challenges . . . all in the name of living life to the fullest.
Laughing and joking with my new friends is something I missed yesterday, so reconnecting with them was definitely on my morning checklist. Muscles working? Check. Oxygen intake uninterrupted? Check. Full stomach? Check. Feelings of optimism? Check, along with a HUMONGOUS can of WHUP ASS. Looks like all systems are go! Time to be fearless!
Adventure rewards those that challenge the perception of what is possible and honours determination above strength and youth. Continue to search for a deeper understanding of what adventure means to you.
This is the main reason why I came to Peru — To challenge myself to brave the physical challenge of the Inca Trail and climb the steps of a world renowned UNESCO World Heritage site. Hopefully all those Spartan races I ran this year prepared me for this trek! If not . . . well, let’s just say that not completing the trail would be devastating. I didn’t come all this way to quit.
To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” — Tony Robbins
