Never Give Up, Never Give Up, Never, Never Give Up

I ran across this picture the other day & it really hit me that this picture, depicts the true meaning behind Know No Boundaries.

When we seem to be stuck in a rut or overwhelmed by obstacles, we need to know that the reality of being able to BREAK THROUGH these self-set, self-limiting obstacles is decided on within our own minds.

WE DECIDE what we can or cannot do, can or cannot overcome, can or cannot become!

The old Confucius saying is so true, “Man who say it cannot be done, should not interrupt man doing it.”

NOW GO DO IT!


Blessings;

Know No Boundaries Partners with #GRAYL Water Filtration Systems

Image
As an avid trail runner  as well as an ultra marathon runner, I understand the tremendous importance of proper & adequate hydration.

When you can carry your own water or there are aid stations along a ride course it is great.

But what about when you’re out of water on a long solo run? What do you do then?

The solution is #GRAYL Water Filtration Systems



Know No Boundaries has partnered with GRAYL Water Filtration Systemsto be providing (2) of their AWESOME filtration systems to the Male & Female winners of Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd in October.
If your not planning on being one of them, you need to get one on your own!
As an avid trail runner, you need to be sure do stay hydrated.                                                                                       (photo courtesy of @domchannon)
Every adventure involves some risk, but wise adventurers aren’t reckless. Whether you’re on the trail needing to drink from a dirty stream, filling upat a questionable hotel sink in Peru, or mak…

We all know how hard life can be sometimes. No matter where you look you see boundaries. In such a situation, a friendly gesture or just somebody believing in you is more valuable than anything. We here at Bragi started our journey trying to free people from boundaries as well. It is not only removing wires from your headphone but a deep belief in helping human beings and enabling them to do better. This was the initial thought and is still inspiring us to do better every day and to offer our customers a product which improves their daily life and encourages them to reach out and break their boundaries.


A story which moved and inspired us all here at Bragi was the story of Ken Saveth!

Ultra Cowboy Ultra - - - Coming Soon!

For those of you who do not know, a local Oklahoma ultra runner; Kelvin Reid; was recently diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Kelvin is an awesome ultra runner &l ast year, had completed (5) 100 mile endurance runs. 

Know No Boundariesis in the process of planning a ultra (likely a 50k) in Dewey, Oklahoma (near Bartlesville, OK) at a local attraction -Prairie Song.


Between the fabulous, hand built western town on close to 980 acres, and the neighboring property of close to 1500 acres, the rolling plains and sprawling vistas will make for a nice day’s run.




The plan is to have the event dependent solely on donations rather than charge for the event knowing that those who will run the event, will give from their hearts. The course should consist of approximately (3) 10+ mile loops and (3) aid stations.

We are also looking to have a totally GREEN event in that there will be no cups at the aid stations thereby eliminating the need to pick them up aft…

Run With Your Heart

Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in our own lives, in our own day to day living, that we forget the burdens others are forced to endure.
Before I die, I vow to think of others and to reach out in hope and compassion.
WHY? Because it matters! A friend & fellow ultra runner; Kelvin T Reid; who was recently & suddenly stricken with ALS & I want to do what I can to help him fight & beat this terrible disease.
First off, there is a virtual race as a fund raiser going on now through US Road Runningfor Kelvin. Kelvin has always taken time to reach out to others and never was too busy to encourage me, a offer words of encouragement & to convince me to keep going. He says that we can do anything we put our minds to. Kelvin is an accomplished Ultra Runner who has been suddenly stricken with ALS. Virtual runs allow you to run any distance, and time, any way...buy your entry fee ($17.99) and get this wonderful honary medal of support for Kelvin. 
PLEASE, even if you don't run...w…
