Someone once asked me why we do Hero Workouts? I wasn’t really looking for anything profound to say and without going into one of my really long diatribes I gave this person my short answer… But I believe each of us have our own long answer.
The short answer is that we do them to honor the Fallen Soldier, Police Officer, Fireman, or any other person that has given their life in the protection of our lives and our freedom. It’s a short sweet and to the point answer. I think each of us might have our own version of a longer answer so I thought I’d share one with you.
Whether we do a workout in someone’s memory, run a marathon or 5K in someone’s memory or just light a candle in a person’s memory we are affirming that person’s life. The act itself requires an enormous amount of intent and respect. Many of you have reached out to me and thanked me for doing these workouts because you felt something as you were doing it. I won’t put words into your mouth as I’m sure it’s a little different for each of you or the ones who really establish a connection while honoring someone’s memory.
In affirming another person’s life here on earth we elevate them in their eternal resting place. At least that’s what I believe.
