The Leap of Champions…

There are days that life is best lived on the edge, quite literally.

As I stand on the edge of this tall structure, my waist and feet connected to an elastic cord, looking at the vast horizon, the only thing running on my mind is: do you have to do this?It is so scary up here!

The kind of thoughts blocked on my mind range from: What is the aging warranty of this structure (wear and tear issues)? When was the last time it was replaced? What is the tested speed of wind that will guarantee a safe landing?What’s the worst that can happen?The success stories of other jumps does not guarantee my safety. That in actual sense means that my odds of having a disastrous jump just got higher.

You know what Rael, Just jump, you will arrive alive. So, take a deep breathe and enjoy!

    1. You can handle this, based on experience…it’s less scary compared to Sagana.
