At 70 This Trainer Trained Himself Up Kilimanjaro with 3 Artificial Joints

Kilimanjaro with 3 Artificial Joints

Kilimanjaro with 3 artificial joints; got your attention? Feeling a little tired… after your early morning swim or your HIIT session today? This will give you a new perspective. 

Even better, with adult kids. If you’re a parent you know what that would mean. If you have parents, especially if they’re gone, you may know what it would be like to have a memory like that with them. 

What kind of life lessons are tucked into experiences like this. Maybe you pursue marathons or triathlons, maybe you like bodybuilding. 

Is it for you, or ego, or is it also something to create a life for later you love? 

Is it to put something in your life that is more meaningful, or to escape reality of today? 

There are so many reasons to add a “reach” experience to your life, and none of them wrong. Perhaps the only wrong is in not knowing why you want it or do it. 

Enjoy this short Q and A.
