Contender in the Room (YEG)

We know the value of community, we know the advantages of doing things as a group, but having a contender adds that little extra bit. At the end of each month we have a ‘race day’ – while at Royal Glenora Stairs we push as hard as we can for 28min 19sec.

What I find adds that extra push is having a contender in the room. When it comes to race day it’s that person right in front of you. Even if you don’t know their name you keep them in sight. As you see them striving forward you strive forward too. It keeps us pushing making us better with each step.

You may not see it but you are someone else’s contender too just as you look to someone else for inspiration. By you showing up you make this community better and it is a better place with you in it. Thank you for choosing to show up. Special thanks to those who chose to dress up for halloween this morning! Your costumes were amazing.

Keep being awesome,
