Who: Anyone who wants to join - But a few friends of mine are joining the fun
What: 4x4x48 - https://www.gogginschallenge.com/
Why: From David’s Link → Community: Encourage others to join in the 4x4x48 Challenge! In a time when there is so much divisiveness in the world, this event gives all of us the rare opportunity to come together for a common goal with people from all over the world!
Specifcally for me I am looking to raise money for Remember Nhu (Prevents Child Trafficking)
I was texting my buddy Scott last weekend and he mentioned this little 4x4x48 challenge and I figured why not. So I texted a couple more of my friends who I served with overseas and they both agreed to the insanity within minutes.
I don't know about you, but when you have a crew that is willing to suffer alongside of you, to help folks in need you do not know AND have fun doing it, that to me is true friendship and a great example of community. Like David said, now more than ever we need a little shot of hope and community.
Personally, I am not in shape for an ultra-marathon distance in 2 days with no sleep, but who cares. David Goggins talks about 40% and I completely agree with the theory. Essentially: when you think you're done, you're really only at 40% capacity. So let's create more proof to support the theory.
Worst case: I get hurt, wouldn't be the first or last time ha!
Best Case: We finished together and did something miserably fun, ha!
In life, it is not the cheap thrills you look back and fondly remember, it was overcoming tough circumstances and sharing the experience with your others close to you.
