Posts Tagged ‘Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center’

Hello Again!

During my last long run (8 miles!) I tried to focus on the topic of inspiration. What inspires people to do things, anything? Who inspires them? And why? How does having inspiration influence goals, and how does it affect performance?

On March 3, 2017 in Breckenridge, Colorado, my family and I attended the 2017 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour Program, hosted by the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC). The festival included 10 different films, varying in length and focused on outdoor adventures. Besides awesome scenery and natural beauty, the accomplishments of the many athletes was outstanding, and yes….inspiring!

My favorite was called “Four Mums in a Boat” and told the story of four middle-aged working British mums who announced they wanted to row across the Atlantic Ocean. (WHAT???) I believe the journey was 3000 miles, took 67 days and was filled with challenges, struggles, tears and laughs. It was a story about ordinary people doing extraordinary things – juggling families, work and training – to accomplish a goal that seemed to be on the edge of “crazy.”

I loved the story, and especially when Darren said at the end, “don’t get any ideas, Mom!” Haha, I don’t think I have that amount of “crazy” in me, but I do hope I have enough to get through this half marathon on April 30th as part of Team Push to Walk!! Check out the story and see if it doesn’t provide you with some inspiration!! And then please tell me what inspires YOU!!!

Stay inspired! Love Cynthia
