    When Should You Cut an Adventure Short? A Coach Ponders When Enough is Enough

    fileJohn Colver cut his big bike ride short—about 4,600 miles short. And that's OK, he says; after the first 4,000 miles, he figured the trip was already a success. Have you ever taken on a huge physical challenge and not quite reached your intended finish line? How did you respond? Waves of self-doubt? Gut-churning despair? Logic-defying determination to force yourself to carry on? All those options were available last fall to Colver, author of the book Fit by Nature, in which he advocates the use ...

    fileLet's face it, you just can't always be out having adventures. That time came for me last year when my right knee required ACL reconstruction surgery--a wonder of medical science, but a long-term adventure sideliner. I'm now back to a mostly normal routine of hitting trails and pedaling the bike.
