It would have been so easy to stay in bed that morning – warm, cozy, and comfy – sheltered from the elements, the darkness, and the work that lie ahead.

But that would have been the easy route – the route that leads to nothing more than the same day-in, day-out routine.

So, while the rest of the city was tucked in, you and your entire team peeled yourself out of bed, geared up to endure a cold, dark mountain, and summited – as a team – before most had even had their first cup of coffee.
