The Spark 007: Mindset and Motivation

You never know who's smiling at you from across the counter. Chris Hammes works at Mugs coffee shop in downtown Fort Collins, Colorado. Most mornings when I arrive at Mugs for my daily coffee ritual, I am greeted by his warm smile and kind demeanor -- always engaging, he inquires genuinely about how I'm doing. Who knew that behind that smile -- and those kind, blue eyes -- hid the dedication and spirit of a true champion. At only 26 years of age, Chris is an ultra-marathon runner. Not only has he run several 50-mile and 100-mile races, but more than once he's crossed the finish line in first place.

I met Susan Singley years ago when she worked at The Food Coop here in Fort Collins. Upon first meeting Susan, her easy laugh, infectious smile, and warm spirit immediately engage you. A few years ago, Susan decided to pursue her dreams and move to San Luis Obispo, California, where she was surrounded by the dual beauty of the mountains and the ocean. Life was an adventure, but who knew how the winds of fate would take her to her greatest adventure yet.
