Yeah it's Thursday is back!
Last year I started a new themed blog called 'Yeah it's Thursday' (I had Thursdays off teaching).
It didn't last long, which is disappointing and in a nutshell it was meant to be sustainable as it wasn't long and jusa short list of a few things that I've consumed and thought were worth recommending. A doco, movie, book, podcast, event, etc.
Anyway I'm going to try and start it up again and see post 1 of season 2 below. (you can scroll even further down to see what I was digging this time last year!) Enjoy.
Movie/Doco: All for One.
Description: ALL FOR ONE follows the first five years of the GreenEDGE cycling journey. United by their renegade spirit and a determination to win against substantial odds, these riders take on the international circuit. The film offers unique insights into the first five years of their journey, bearing witness to the ethos of the team as embodied by all – from the strongest to most embattled members. Out of a culture that embraces a deeply human approach to sport, unlikely champions are born, and seemingly improbable team and personal goals are achieved.
I remember when this movie came out and the local cycling club had a fundraiser at the movies for its release and I didn't think much of it. On my flight to Tokyo the other day it popped up and I thought I'd give it a go. Wow! It below me away, such an inspiring, motivating and entertaining movie which I highly recommend. I actually watched it again on the way back as well. At one stage I was ready to fist pump the sky but remembered I was on a plane with a couple hundred of people. You can rent it for $6.99 from their website here and if you're into any sport you'll love this one and even as a dedicated runner this is hands down better than any running doco I've watched.
Book: Ryan Holiday, Ego is the Enemy
One of the best books I've read in years, it'll make you check yourself and the way you deal with other people and think about yourself. It will be a book that I go back to and read time and time again and this quote sticks out for me. Hit up your local library or check it on amazon below.
Event: Johnno's Run as part of Run Melbourne.
Last week we launched Johnno's Run for 2018. Last year we were the biggest team at the even with 230 people participating and raised about $80,000 for Community Living and Respite Services. This year we're hoping to raise even more and have more people involved, you don't have to live in Echuca/Moama to join so check out the details here. I'll be at training every Monday night at 5:15pm down Scenic Drive and hope to see as many locals as possible there.
