My longtime friend Jon Herrity (the friend I’ve known the very longest, to be more precise) nominated me for a special challenge, one that all of you can certainly be a part of as well!
In fact, I nominate any and all friends (especially my fitness coaches!) for 22 days to raise awareness for combat veterans. There are 22 vets a day who commit suicide, and this is a small way to raise awareness so that all who suffer from thoughts of self-harm can gain access to crucial resources before it’s too late. If you choose to accept the challenge, you start tomorrow! The rules are simple:
* Once you accept the nomination, your 22 days start the following day.
* Each day, you’ll record yourself doing 22 push-ups. Try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted (from your knees) push-ups, or that you have to stop and take a break, that’s fine. Just try to get them all done in one video.
* Every day you can nominate or invite new people. Try to choose people you think will want to do this and/or have the ability to do it.
* And finally, have fun. This is a simple and enjoyable way to get the word out about a serious matter that deserves much more attention.
And without further ado, here is my first day!
