Another Vicarious Adventure!...pedaling across the Atlantic!

On a morning that my pants simply aren't fitting like they did yesterday... and with the need of a 'hit' of something inspirational - I hopped over to one of my favorite blogs (filled with human-powered adventures around the world).

I love the opening quote for Thursday March 27th "If death isn't a good possibility it's probably not much of an adventure." hee he he - I'm giggling but there is something to that!!!

I was struck by a very cool adventure that a guy named Greg is planning...In December of this year he is going to attempt pedaling (no, that isn't a typo) across the Atlantic in a special pedal boat (a kayak type boat) to set a world record. I will be following this to see how he does.

On his website www.pedaltheocean.com there is also an awesome quote: "HUMAN POWER IS THE POWER FROM 'WITHIN' ! AS A SOCIETY, WE NEED TO START USING IT, OR WE RISK LOSING IT"

Also from his site:
Greg's non-profit organization KidPower provides free school presentations and programs that show children what the human body is capable of and inspire them to get out and get physical. Not everyone is capable of setting human powered speed records but we are all capable of more than we think. By showing what is possible Greg hopes to ignite their imagination as to what can be accomplished using our power from within - our human power. As Greg says "Human Power Rocks!"

I hope this inspires you a little bit today!
