In the spirit of New Year’s Resolutions, and having already given up on a few of them, I thought it would be a good idea to share Becky Nix’s story for a little inspiration.
Eight and a half years is a long time to keep up with any hobby, which makes Becky’s 102 months of snowboarding so impressive. Her goal is to reach 120 consecutive months, which means she only has a year and a half left to go. According to this article, her love of snowboarding began with an invitation from a friend in the middle of August. Since then she has boarded in Chile, Canada, Switzerland, and Colorado, California, Oregon, and Utah in the US. For a trip to count, she must make 14 turns. September is always her hardest month, since the snow from the previous season is gone and winter hasn’t started yet, but she still finds a way.
Her dedication and follow-through make the idea of going once a month during the regular season seem do-able. We hope this helps you get out there and stick to it!
