Running up a mountain

November 26, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

I love where I work.  

For starters, we have a cabinet in the kitchen with free food.  For an Intern making enough to buy three items from Whole Foods a week, the cabinet means breakfast, lunch and a late afternoon snack.

But that is mundane compared to the real reason I don’t dread going to work everyday.  Instead it’s because for nine hours a day I am surrounded by individuals who know nothing about the word “can’t.”

Monday morning discussions are peppered with tales of mountaineering, epic ski adventures, century bike rides and micro-brew drinking competitions. 

Then, around lunchtime the office clears out and heads into the mountains.  Most bike, some go to the gym, but a handful of us head to Mount Sanitas where we walk, hike, slog, run, sprint and live at 1.2 mph.

We even write a blog about it. 

So far it’s been a long four weeks.  I’m barley being able to get my ass up the mountain, but overtime my ultimate goal of 20 minutes should be in reach.  So if you’re board check out the blog where my co-workers are always writing some new fantastic stuff about our journey up a mountain.
