So I got a call from Steve Moore the other day and a short whirlwind later, I’m sitting in the offices of Britain’s Personal Best producing social video to support the campaign especially in the run up to the Big Weekend.
I’m talking to lots of people about the extraordinary things they’re planning to do – I’m being introduced to a new community of people who seem to live for challenges, they do a 5k, then a 10, then a marathon, then they’re tri-athloning then they’re doing it all again but in fancy dress.
And then there are people who are going to try a new sport or physical activity.
But I think there’s another opportunity in this for the people who go “sport? yuk! not doing that”. We’re not just about celebrating the best of people in physical activities, your personal best challenge can be any positive change, something that stretches you or helps you grow. Or something that you’ve always wanted to do, but need a little nudge to really get it done.
Which leads naturally to the question “So Lloyd, what’s yours?”
I think you should all answer that for me. I will do something suggested by people reading this. What do you think I should do? My knees are not going to let me do any running. And I’m just not going to do anything that involves being up high. And I’m not going to do anything illegal. I can’t think of any other constraints but I’m sure when you start suggesting, I’ll come up with some excuses. Nonetheless, I’m going to do *something* that I’d otherwise not do. Leave me a comment, or tweet me your suggestions.
And I suggest you pledge to do something extraordinary too.
