Tonight is our Thursday Night Run and another movie night. I can't tell you the last time I saw two movies in two weeks at the movie theater (if ever). UltraMarathon Man will be interesting to see but we probably won't be dancing in the aisles this go around. I can't imagine how Dean Karnazes ran 50 marathons in 50 days in 50 states...it's crazy to think-yet inspiring to ponder new challenges for yourself.
I know I'm preaching to the choir when it comes to this, but I can't imagine not pushing myself to something more than what I already am-whether it be physically or mentally. I know we all get in a rut from time to time but I feel sad for those that are stagnant in their lives and are not willing to put themselves out on the line. It is their choice as things don't 'just happen'-you make them happen-but they really don't know what they are missing. If you don't challenge yourself, how do you know what you're made of?
Back to the movie...The scoop from the website:
The inspirational film UltraMarathon Man: 50 Marathons 50 States 50 Days, features renowned endurance athlete and best selling author Dean Karnazes, in his attempt to run 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days to raise awareness for youth obesity and to get America active. A beautiful and epic journey across the United States, during which Dean pushes the limits of human endurance, inspiring thousands across the country to join him along the path while uniting people of all ages and abilities to take "the next step."

So here's to a new endeavor!
My next challenge is a 50K in November. Oh...and scraping all the popcorn crap off the ceiling.
