There is something about getting older, hitting 31 and realizing that its possible that my “best years” are here and/or behind me. Something that has me absolutely determined to get my act together! Its time for me to break through the barriers that have been holding me back, stop making excuses and start living a healthy life!
Just before my birthday I went and got a gym membership again. A few weeks later I tried yoga on a whim… by the end of that hour long class, I was HOOKED! Stretching, moving, pushing my body to go further, breaking more barriers… its a feeling like no other! Unless of course, its breaking those barriers while outside. Ya know the whole yoga-communing-with-nature thing. Its legit and oh so calming! Especially on the super crazy days!
All of these new experience have combined and left me determined to live a No Barriers Life! Just like Erik Weihenmayer! Erik is the only blind adventurer to climb to the seven highest summits in the world. His latest expedition? To kayak the Grand Canyon’s Colorado River. He and fellow blind adventurer, Lonnie Bedwell, will be the first blind adventurers to attempt this enormous feat. This expedition serves to inspire people to not limit themselves, eliminate barriers in their lives and live life to its fullest. Nature Valley is joining Erik Weihenmayer in inviting people to pledge to get out there and live a No Barriers Life.
Weihenmayer and his adventures are featured in a series of new television and digital advertisements “Feel Nature’s Energy” for Nature Valley, highlighting the unique ways in which Erik experiences nature.
