What is it like to have been a Crew Captain in three cities?
What is something you long fiorm week after week?
For some, it is a drink with friends on a Friday night, or watching the big game on the weekend. For others, it might be coming home from a long day at work to see their family. I was asked a derivative of this question recently, and my answer was…well…it depends…
For me, it ultimately depends on where I am.
If I’m in Barcelona, I’m looking forward to a sweaty, rambunctious 10km run on a Monday night through La Barceloneta with the Mediterranean Sea breeze at my back.
If I’m in London, Tuesday evenings can’t come soon enough, when I’m rewarded for doing burpees by the picturesque backdrop of St. Paul’s Cathedral and the company of 100+ friends.
And if I’m in New York, where I now call home, a distance run around the lush, late-summer grass on Randall’s Island with some fellow weekend warriors never fails to show me the best parts of this beautiful thing we call life.
This is not meant to be some sort of humble brag. I have been fortunate over the last couple of years to live around the world for work, studies and well…a little bit of fun (yes, that’s a reference to Spain).
