The Commando run is a 15 mile ski tour through the high backcountry of the White River National Forest near Vail. The high point, just above 11,000 feet, is called the “Top of the World.”  Yesterday I was able to complete this trip for the x-teenth time with two old friends, and one new one.  Along the way it impressed me that even though I had not seen these friends in a while we pulled this off in a very respectable time with very little planning, and a lot of laughs along the way.

It served as a reminder that when we take care of our bodies, keep our skills sharp, and have each other’s backs, we are ready for adventure at the drop of a hat.  So whether at work, with family, in our organizations, sports or hobbies, keep those skills sharp, stay fit, remain selfless and have fun because adventure awaits.
