I woke up this morning and spend some time thinking instead of leaping out of bed and getting on with the day. Somewhere in my thoughts the phrase "Momentum is Magic" found its way through the rest of the mind-noise and fought to be heard.
Momentum is Magic....yes it is...these three words say so much, much more.
As we complete week 5 of the 5x50 Challenge, I am struck by just how fitting those three words are. By now YOU will have built up momentum, you will be going faster, further and demonstrating more flair every day. (Well maybe not EVERY day but there WILL be an upward trend!)
The Challenge itself is a fantastic example of the Magic of Momentum – from humble beginnings in 2012, the passion and enthusiasm of our Challenge community has seen 5x50 reach new audiences – school pupils, companies, people of all abilities and far flung nations. Challengers regularly share their stories of just how 5x50 has helped them to get unstuck in an area of life and move towards bigger and better things, well maybe not "bigger" in the case of the countless challengers who have seen their waistlines shrinking! But you know what I mean?!!
In the midst of all the movement though, we should not lose sight of another word hidden within the phrase and that word is MOMENT. Among all the busy-ness, the trying to find time to do your daily 5k or equivalent, remember to take time to just be still, smell the rain, "feel" the fitness, smile at the kids, gaze at the stars and experience that "magic moment".
5x50 Challenge started with a vision to make people who are inactive become more active. Challengers become part of something that inspires, motivates, encourages you to live a healthier lifestyle. 5x50 Challenges are open to all. Individuals or groups regardless of age, health condition/ disability or fitness level can take part.
