5 Things Worth Sharing

  • The Obstacle Is The Way. Really interesting book that I'm currently listening to. The book is inspired on the philosophy of Stoicism, personal writings of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius and examples of successful leaders from different backgrounds who used stoic principles. I'll be honest, I'm still familiarizing myself with Stoicism, but I really like the overall spirit of the book: how we respond to obstacles is what define us.
  • Must-haves for when you hike or backpack? What do you think? Most of these items look super useful and are dirt cheap
  • Embrace the treadmill. Really! The treadmill is one of the best ways to improve your running. Here are 6 tips on how to improve your treadmill training (what do you think of tip #3?!)

The CHASKI Fact Of The Week


The Chaskis used to have resting areas called Tambos. These areas were used to rest and refuel.  The Tambos were also used  to transfer messages from one Chaski to the next one (these guys were organized!!)
