The Challenge is Over, But the Lessons Remain


I’m proud to say that as of yesterday,  I successfully  crushed my ‪#‎ForFitSake‬ challenge!

I set a goal to log 100km over 10 days and raise $500 for the House with No Steps charity helping people with disabilities.

The results were better than I expected. I logged 114.1 km through a combination of outdoor and indoor activity – walking, running, cycling, and the ergo meter (arm cycling)

I received donations from 11 generous supporters from three countries, raising $510!

So a huge THANK YOU to everyone who got involved and showed their support with donations or encouraging words.

My #ForFitSake challenge is now over, but the 10 Lessons it taught me shall remain:

  1. Setting goals is important – especially if they represent a stretch.
  2. Being grateful for your abilities keeps you humble.
  3. Little bits of effort demonstrated repeatedly can add up to big results.
  4. Celebrating milestones is important.
  5. Mindset is key in accomplishing anything.
  6. Making your goal a priority helps immeasurably in accomplishing it.
  7. Support from others helps you to overcome the challenges.
  8. Doing good for others does not have to preclude doing good for yourself.
  9. It feels good to accomplish a stretch goal.
  10. It’s okay to be proud of yourself.
