Sitting in the car with the heater and seat warmers on full blast, I look out the window at a chilly scene. The wind is howling. The sky is gray. The water on the lake looks as choppy and uneven as my self-cut bangs in third grade. Awake since 4:30 a.m., I’ve already taught a strength training class, thrown a load of laundry in the washer and herded the girls to school.

In June 2013 Nik Wallenda, of the famous Flying Wallenda circus family, walked 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River Gorge on nothing more than a 2-inch steel cable.
