Day 48: 5km Sandbag Carry
A couple of weeks ago I took on my own little challenge of a 5km sandbag carry. I went in with one constraint. Create a new feeling of physical 'challenge'. It's easy to think about the things we've done in the past or compare to something or someone else.
Don't try and move mountains. Be in the now and each day find just a little bit better.

“The wind was terrible,” she said. “I had a skirt on, and the wind was just blowing it like that. I was hanging onto my hat, and a kid came up to me and said, ‘Lady, you better stop hanging onto your hat and pull your dress down, you’re showing everything you’ve got.'”
Thanks for the share Aly!
