National Go For Broke Day

A day to throw caution to the wind and take a step toward achieving a dream or a goal. Often the first step is a small but challenging one. Go for it. Try something you've always wanted to do. Heck, you might even call for a fake punt.

Fitting right in with National Go For Broke Day is National Get Gnarly Day.

The word “Gnarly” gets a bad rap. It can mean “bad” or “dangerous” but can also be exciting. Surfers often use the term to describe the waves they tackle. Much like surfers challenging the waves, Get Gnarly Day challenges us to put some gnarliness into everything we do.Here's an example of one way to get gnarly.

Find a gnarly hobby. Hulda Crooks, born in 1896, didn’t start hiking and climbing until she was 54 years old after her husband’s death. While she was an active jogger and walker prior to his death, she was by no means a qualified mountain climber. Crooks first scaled Mount Whitney in California, the highest summit in the contiguous United States, at the age of 66. She completed a total of 23 ascents of Mount Whitney and at the age of 91 climbed Mount Fuji in Japan. Mountain climbing added gnarliness to her life.

You can also meet gnarly people by stepping out of your comfort zone, find a new gnarly style, in your hair, your home decoration or the clothes you wear.

    If we get Evans, I’d call it “gnarly”. He

    I think you are referring to BJJ, right? The Gracie sport? Definitely gnarly without any doubt. The more skilled your opponent the gnarlier it is.

    Man, you are out there doing it. That is what matters. Thee's always going to be a faster gunslinger down the road or, in your case, some new Gracie showing up. Keep keepin' on.
