Today is the first day of our 31 Amazing Days Challenge. I have my list for the month pretty much outlined, but I’m leaving room for random moments of inspiration. Wouldn’t you know, I got that moment on day #1.
My relatively new online friend, Alana Mokma, posted something to Facebook the other day that caught my attention. She wrote:
“Random Fact: If you dare me to do something, I will almost always accept the challenge.“
Oh, game on, sister. I challenged her to organize a group and participate in an upcoming Spartan Race. For those who don’t know, Spartan races are adventure races with obstacles spread out over several miles. Warrior Dash, Spartan Race, Tough Mudder… they are all similar. I sent her a link to a video from their home page.
A couple hours after “accepting” my challenge, she returns with her “Spartan Race” video. She was hoping that it would substitute for the real deal.
After some trash talking and joking back and forth, she challenged our mutual friend Claudia and me to create our own spoof Spartan Race video. Since Claudia thinks of me as her quirky friend, I have to live up to her image of me.
So, within the next week or so (when Steve, my camera man, has time to help me), I’ll be creating my Spartan video and putting myself out there for her (and all of the YouTube audience’s) amusement. Oh, dear!
My sister’s wedding is coming up next weekend. Maybe the wedding party can all join in. Ohhhh, she would kill me
