A few years ago, I set an ambitious goal for myself.
To honor my stepmother, who had recently passed away from breast cancer, I decided to join a 60 mile walk to raise funds for breast cancer research.
But there was one small problem.
I was overweight, and walking 60 miles seemed even more daunting than raising the $4000 I set as my fundraising goal.
It was gonna be a challenge, so I developed a system.
I walked the 4-mile round trip between my apartment and work every day. And on weekends I walked 10 more miles. I improved my diet, and soon started feeling healthier and stronger.
By the time the walk took place, I had exceeded my fundraising goal and lost a dozen pounds. I completed my 60 miles feeling energized.
But what happened next may surprise you.
