WE ARE DAYBREAK and the ABC of Life. This new series comes straight of our community, a co-created piece of 26 letters and many more thoughts on life, running and the outdoors. Big questions, big goals, big thinkers. Doing our ‘DB thing’ – asking better questions for better results. Learning by doing. Empowering through journeys and experiences.
This week we’re taking a close look at the letter A. So many great suggestions were pouring in and by popular vote we’ve focussed on Adventure and Attitude.
Read what our community has to share. If you want to be featured and get inspired head over to our brainstorm area:

DB / ABC of LIFE – A – your thoughts on ADVENTURE and ATTITUDE.
“Adventure is being disconnected from the city, getting out there in the wild nature and explore its beauty. A Big adventure is waiting in a couple of months: out all day running in the nature with myself and I, exploring a new place. Adventure means adrenaline, positive vibes, rediscovering yourself and what you can find outside your comfort zone…”

“Ha! The adventure of living abroad. I guess adventure can be letting go of the known and trying the unknown. A different commute. A different running route. A different breakfast or a different option in the menu. Even when life limits you, finding the new and fitting in some adventures where you see the opportunity. No money to travel? Gonna take the tube/train somewhere and go for a walk or run there. Not fit to run? Gonna say yes to that friend who invites me to go climbing.”

“My favourite Disney films are Pocahontas and Moana. Both bad ass adventurers. Just think what life would be like if it was simply known routine and we were never pushing and testing our boundaries? Let’s hungrily seek adventure, thirsting for knowledge and driving on to see where that shoreline or river leads. Adventure is out there and it’s calling your name!”

“Once I took a glimpse beyond the edges of the valley, I discovered the world. Leaving the comfort of home and learning to create life from scratch.
Adventure is… running an entire race with tape covering my watch screen. Trusting the feel and pacing better.
Adventure is… taking the central line in rush hour.
Adventure is… taking a big group on a night trail run to Epping Forest and navigating us through the maze of trails to draw some Strava art.
Adventure is… to have a plan and ditch it on the run to follow your own compass.
Adventure is… Leaving my running watch at home. Storing memories not data.
Adventure is… Travelling to new countries and exploring on foot.
Adventure is… getting stuck and finding new ways. Physically and mentally.
Adventure is… climbing up a mountain, only discover there are many many more to explore.”
