The possibilities in life are endless, but what about the impossibilities. There are many things in life that were once considered to be impossible: climbing Mt. Everest, flying around the world, and biking 3,000 miles across the country. However, what is thought as unimaginable by some, is made obtainable by others.
Oceanside, CA: RAAM Day 1
We’ve had the opportunity to witness this rare occurrence, thanks to our client and co-owner of Kali Protectives, Mike WIlson, who allowed us to be part of his journey.He began his “impossible” journey Wednesday, June 13th, when he set off to bike across the country in 12 days or less participating in Race Across America (RAAM). His journey is thought of as unattainable for numerous reasons: Only 250 people in the past 30 years have completed the race, more people have climbed Mt. Everest than finish RAAM each year, and you ride about 22 hours a day for about 10 days. Even with the odds not being in his favor, he’s set out to conquer the “impossible.

Today, Mike Wilson will bike for 22 hours, and I thought getting my laundry done before 10pm would be a huge accomplishment. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that everyone should hop on a bike and ride for 22 hours a day, but think of what you’d like to accomplish today. The sky is the limit, Mike Wilson is a true example of that.
