into thin air

‘We will stomp to the top with the wind in our teeth’ ~ George Leigh Mallory

Currently re-reading Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer. A personal account of an expedition to the summit of Everest in 1996 which left 8 people dead after being caught in a storm.

Originally written as an article for Outside magazine (read it here), it was then worked up into a book. Given the subject matter, it does not make for easy reading, and has not been without controversy.

Make your own judgement. Read the first page, I challenge you to put it down.

Now for something a little lighter:

The plan: get out there and play! Run around, wave your hands in the air, like you just don’t care… ‘coz you don’t!

Then, I suggest you pop on over to CultFit for today’s words of wisdom and workout, it is a cracker today!

Have a great weekend.
