Finding time to get outdoors and play isn’t always easy, thanks to things like career aspirations, relationships, etc. While it might not be easy, making room for the things we love to do is an essential part of happiness, and earlyups.com co-founder Jeff Brines sought to convey that in his new bike and ski video, The Other Hours. In addition to running earlyups.com, Brines is a financial analyst, and is often working from nine to seven on any given day of the week. Somehow, according to Brines on Vimeo, he was still able to accumulate these astounding numbers this year:
“Over the year Jeff skied about 140 days and rode his bike 160-plus; snowfall shredded north of 500-inches; human powered vertical ascended (and descended) was close to the one million mark (bike and ski combined). After all that, the high five count was eclipsing 1,000 by even the most conservative estimates. Isn’t this the most important metric of anyone’s life? We think so…”
Big ups to you, Jeff, may we all aspire to get after it as hard as you did (do).
