Peter Bronski is undertaking a mission that many of us can only imagine.
He is training for the Virgil Crest Ultra Race-which is a 50 mile race with 9000 vertical feet of ascent.
Since I live in Florida, the biggest mountain I see is the bridge that spans the intracoastal. I can’t even begin to imagine what a challenge this race will be for Pete. That’s a heck of a goal, and one that I am excited to watch him achieve.
(Side note-setting goals is something I think is super important. Be on the lookout for upcoming posts on goal setting. I talk about it in my new book 7 Quick Start Tips to Leading a Healthy, Gluten-Free Life (without making yourself nuts in the process) also. Setting achieveable and concrete goals for yourself will help quite a bit in actually making positive change.)
Pete is chronicling his training at his blog. In addition, he has decided to make this race a fundraising effort for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness. I am a big supporter of the NFCA as well. They are providing a great deal of wonderful education and working diligently for awareness. I also was the first to complete their GREAT training for allied health professions.
He has created a webpage on First Giving which makes it easy to give your donation. Please join me in donating toward Pete’s goal, and to the NFCA. $5 would be a wonderful donation, and when we all give $5, it will add up quickly.
Please click on over to First Giving now and support Pete and the NFCA.
Then, think about your own goals. Just let the idea of what you would like to achieve marinate in your brain. Then, share them below. Make them concrete, and make them real.
And remember, there is no wrong answer.
