Fit It Forward Challenge #1: Buy a stranger something; coffee, water, lunch…anything.

This week, we’re asking for some random (and some not-so-random) acts of kindness. Every day, you’ll get a challenge that doesn’t appear to have much to do with your squat. It does.

Included in every WOD this week will be a challenge: make our community better. I’ll spell it out daily, don’t worry.

When you realize that GIVING and SHARING make you happier than receiving possibly could, then you’ve got a way to make yourself happy for life. I’ll give you some cues to get you started.

To get the most from these tasks, you’ll want to remain anonymous. For example, your first challenge is an easy one: buy a stranger a coffee. If you’re shy, you don’t need to be seen. You’re not looking for acknowledgement, after all.

On the other hand, I want to know–and I want you to see–how much ‘happy’ we’re putting into our local community this week. A hundred people buying a hundred cups of coffee for two hundred strangers might just make the sun shine a little brighter around town, or confetti rain down from the sky, or something. It will sure make US feel good to be part of such a big movement. So let’s identify ourselves without sharing specifics:

There’s a photo on the CFPO Facebook photo stream. Tag yourself in it. Make it your profile picture. When your friend asks what the heck it means, tell them.
