THOSE STAIRS, THOUGHIf you live on the glorious lakeshore of West Michigan, you no doubt have encountered some of these in your days: Dunes, Sand, Hills, Stairs! ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓


While walking-jogging up a beach staircase the other week, I utilized a simple mindset shift that helped me glide up (almost) effortlessly. My trick?

Imagine two ropes like railings on each side of you; each step you take, move your opposite arm as if pulling yourself along by the rope. You’ll keep this alternate arm-pulling as you take each step. Actually open up your hand and then close it as you grab the “rope” and pull, grab the rope and pull, grab the rope and pull. Pull, Pull, Pull. This imagery will not only take your thoughts off your pounding heart and heavy legs, but your pumping arms will provide momentum that carries your body swiftly forward and upward.

Give it a try the next time you’re moving up stairs or a hill and let us know if it works for you!
