🗻 We had just climbed Mt. Wilhelm (4,509m), the highest in Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬 , spent 5 days hiking through bushes, muddy tracks, river crossings back to sea-level (& civilization); 6 yrs ago this week.
⛰️🏃♂️ Note that I said #hiking (not “running”). Being a beginner runner back then, "run to the summit" didn’t even cross my mind. Forget about running! Even slow walking at such altitude was physically challenging, breathtaking and quite humbling! 😳I thought I was #fit! I realized I wasn’t; But knew I wanted to be.
💡🎯 It doesn’t have to be Triathlon, #Running, Cycling or even sport for that matter! Whatever your passion is, set a goal that is both challenging and realistic, plan how to get there, then get down to it! 😊 #Bismillah! “Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can”
