E8: Calendar Club – Building Mental Toughness Through Running I The Sandbox with Justin Peters Show Notes

Welcome to the eighth episode of The Sandbox, a podcast for those who want to live the best version of their life and are seeking the instruction and inspiration to do just that.

Today’s episode is a special one for me. With a group of friends in April, I completed a running challenge called the Calendar Club. I invited that group into The Sandbox to talk about the challenge and lessons learned. We have lots of laughs throughout as everyone shares stories about their personal experiences.

This light-hearted episode is perfect for those looking to learn more about a fitness challenge that they could use to jumpstart their health journey. I hope you enjoy it!
