The challenge has been catching on and everyday more and more people are beginning their own 30 day journey, some even winning free Vitalyte. For those of you who have been following this campaign so far we at Vitalyte want to thank you and ask that you help spread the word even more. OK, enough shop talk.
I am now one week into my own 30 Days of Awesome Challenge and it has been... well it has been awesome. The difficult part is really planning ahead and making sure that there is something fun scheduled for each and every day, or if there is something planned, trying to get the weather to cooperate. It is amazing how quickly time can pass without anyone really knowing it. Next thing you know the summer is over and you're left wondering what happened to all the plans you made but never got to. I have certainly done that on more than one occasion and this challenge has really made a big difference in my summer.
Take the challenge - there is still plenty of summer left.
So back to Day 7. I recently tore all the ligaments in my foot in a freak mud wrestling accident. Ok, it was really a softball game but the mud wrestling sounds so much better don't you think? Anyway, the damage is done and I have to have surgery, which I have postponed till after the summer where I'm hoping I will have enough time to recover before ski season begins. Anyway, as a result of this injury my summer sports schedule has suffered a bit. Yesterday was one of the first decent days I have had on the water since the injury and is hence my topic for the day.
The lakes in Colorado tend to fill up quickly on the weekends and so if you desire to get anything resembling decent water, you need to be on it by 7:00am. Any time after that and you'll be skiing or boarding in what can only be described as tsunami like swells, complements of the vast number of boats they allow on the lake. (Way to many in my opinion) Luckily we were out early, got some decent water and I had a great couple of runs, bad foot and all. The really great part of the day was watching two people who just began boarding this season really start to make some progress, and seeing a good friend hit his first 360 in the water. Congratulations Larry, Tami and Brian.
The weather held, surprisingly enough, my friends had an awesome day and even as the day wore on and the water turned more to ocean chop than Colorado lake water, we all had some great runs. Wakeboarding is a lot of fun but part of that fun is really spending time with friends outdoors on the lake enjoying the day. And even if you have a bum foot, maybe you end with a photo worthy jump you can post on your blog the next day.
So as I mentioned before, there is still a lot of summer left and I highly encourage you all to start your own 30 Days of Awesome, take some pictures and send them to me. I want to know how its going out there for you all.
Have an awesome week everyone!
