Yesterday morning, I woke up with the sun and rode up to Central Park to get a good 1.5 hour ride in before work.
By 3pm, my coworkers and I boarded a bus to go to Crystal SpringsÂ for our company retreat. I had never been on a company retreat before, so I was very curious about what we were getting ourselves into.
Well, when you work for a fitness companyâ€¦Â it will probably involve fitness.
After breakfast this morning, it was time for us to leave for The Amazing Race, DailyBurn style.
We ran up and down trails, swatted away ALL THE BUGS, answered company trivia and did random physical challenges.
You know, like kayaking out to pick up some ping pong balls and then putting them in some weird PVC pipe structure.
This game was fun, too. You had to pick up a piece of paper, but only one person can be in the circle at a time.
SEE PEOPLE! NJ can be pretty! (Some of it.)
I am not a woodsy person in the least, so the bugs drove me nuts, but eventually I got more comfortable around them. I should have worn a watch, but the organizersâ€™ estimates were that our route was somewhere between 4-6 miles, which Iâ€™m happy with.
Every day, I count my blessings and consider myself so happy to work for a company I love and truly believe in with amazing coworkers who feel the same. And who organize retreats like this that allow us to work out outside on a Thursday, Um, OK 🙂
Whatâ€™s your favorite non-traditional workout youâ€™ve done lately?Â
