[Week 1, 2021] 1st – 7th January. Adventure big, do good, here’s to 2021.

WEEK 1 – 2021 (1st to 8th Jan 2021)

ADVENTURE BIG – DO GOOD

2021 HERE WE GO! – So what’s this year and the next all about for us and how can you get involved…

I’m incredibly fortunate to have carved a path that blurs the lines between work and life – and better still is intertwined with my passions, and those I hold dear being next to me while I do so. Adventure, running, and travel are 3 clear labels that fit nicely into the box of what I enjoy the most – you may have noticed. I am however a big believer in everyones ability to create some benefits to the planet and it’s people while following our dreams. Since the creation of Running The World, and my efforts to raise funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK, I’ve become more and more aware of parts of the world that need help, people that are in desperate need, and of course most obviously how the planet needs a considerable about of help too. This is why every running expedition or challenge we embark on from now and for always, will deliver a substantial climate change initiative touching many parts of environmentalism, plus some finite more intimate work with charities and individuals that need a leg up in life. There’s a great deal to say about this, but i’ll save that for another day. The simple message is this – 2021 and beyond will be bigger, better, more impacting and of course rammed full of running and adventure. IMPORTANTLY we want YOU ALL to get involved. I’d love to share footsteps with as many of you as possible, and do some good in the process. If you’re up for a challenge and want to get involved please reach out on email. nick@nickbutter.co.uk.

This year I’ll be writing weekly reviews; highlighting the best bits, the challenging bits, and the various adventures we’ve been up to. I think that’s a good way to share what we’ve been up to and keep me accountable to various goal and objectives of the year.

For us (Nikki, the team and I), January the 1st marks the official start of getting the ball rolling towards a mammoth mission we are taking on in 2023. It’s been many years in the planning and this is where stuff starts to get serious. I won’t say much now, but watch this space.

So this first week I’ve spent half my time planning with many phone calls and emails, and the other half enjoying the snow and being fortunate to not be trapped in a lockdown somewhere. After completing the Italian Grand Tour, we came here, Les 3 Vallees for Christmas. A place I consider my second home. And so with the Covid and the lockdown affecting everyone back in UK, we are very grateful to have a largely abandoned series of mountains to play around in for a while. Ski touring, shooting some content, and also having time to relax, play cards, and taking in long slow, pre dawn walks with Poppy. It’s been a perfect way to start the year.

My team, family and of course Nikki and I have decided the best way forward in doing what we love is to simply double down on the previous few years. More adventure, more challenge and more running – all designed to have fun and create some tangible benefits for the world. I must confess I have a slight obsession with spending as much time out of my comfort zone as possible – There’s something very immediate that brings everything into such stark focus. I urge you all to target more time out of your comfort zone in 2021. I can assure you it’s the place to be.

More updates to come… announcements for challenges this year coming very soon. For now, back to balancing the wonders of this snowy paradise with my laptop and making the dreams come true. It’s not just all pretty pictures like these I can assure you. Work hard, Run strong, Adventure further, Do good.
