Running Past Your Comfort Zone x

Comfort zones. Ah! The humble abode for many such as myself, a place to reside with a guarantee of very little interruption, inadvertently guaranteeing very little growth. For the longest time, my personal comfort zone has been exactly that, a zone where I found most of my comfort from, and upon having stumbled upon one of the most challenging years…

On Thursday evening, the 7th of May, Nike hosted it’s first #BetterForIt evening in the city that I love, Joburg.
