Take away some tangible techniques you can implement into your life to improve your daily mindfulness.  There are a couple challenge coming from today's talk:

Today I share a great quote and I'm not sure who wrote it but I love it!!  Change is inevitable and sometimes we feel it coming on strongly.  I wanted to acknowledge the thoughts most everyone has when approaching a change in our lives.

Becoming Ultra host and founder, Scott Jones, fields questions from the audience.  Can I play kickball tomorrow night, just a few days after a marathon?  How do I speed up recovery?  What are best strength moves for uphill running?  How many miles a week when I am not training for a specific race? We think you'll enjoy this one!

Trail etiquette is important for all the outdoors people to assure we are being respectful and diplomatic on the trails.  Represent your outdoor recreation as a mountain biker, runner, hiker, backpacker, equine rider or hunter.  The important thing to remember is that we all have love for the outdoors, which means we are not that different!

 

Check out the podcast The Hunting Collective EP:73 to learn more about trail etiquette coming from a hunting perspective.
