Extraordinary MERU!

It’s Easter weekend, and for a lot of us that means a little bit of extra free time. I suggest that you check out this totally epic documentary called Meru in between food sessions, and/or while traveling. I had heard about it before, but just recently got down to watching it. It will blow your mind! You can currently find it on Netflix.

“A genuinely moving tale of super human perseverance and friendship”
-The Playlist
This is a view of Mount Meru as seen from
Tapovon Basecamp. The Shark’s Fin is the central pillar in the
formation and the part of the mountain most obviously shaped like a
shark’s fin.

At the very least it will make you appreciate the mountain of food most likely  in front of you during this time. *big smile*  Not only are the images of the mountain climbing breathtaking for a lot of reasons, but the story being told of friendship, athleticism, pure grit and what someone can achieve when they really want it, is mind blowing. How about using this film for a perspective check on your own difficulties? Just check it out, you won’t regret it.

I would also suggest that you listen to the podcast episode with Tim Ferriss interviewing Jimmy Chin called “The Athlete (and Artist) Who Cheats Death”.

Happy Easter everyone! 😉
