The founder of the Patagonia sportswear company started his business with the intentions of being different. He didn’t want staff that weren’t active and never used their products. He wanted a staff that would embrace physical activity and break a sweat.
Why can’t other organizations follow suit.
What has happened to “work”? Why is it a badge of honor to eat lunch at your desk?
As ridiculous as it seems, as least some business used to occur on the golf course. And you know…golf is a good walk spoiled.
I challenge you to take at least 1 lunch break per week to go for a run. In 1 hour you can easily bust out 3 to 5 miles. Eat a small snack prior to your run and eat a sandwich after; food done, exercise added.
If enough of us choose to take a break to run, then employers will begin to see the need to “Let my people run”.
oh…and also, if we’re all running, then we all run the risk of smelling and nobody will notice (it will be our little secret).
When you’re training for a 100 miler you got to get miles wherever you can.
