We've got a real weird soft spot for Type Two fun (the stuff that feels more hard/dumb/painful than fun at the time, but afterwards has you giddy on endorphins). Early morning wake up calls, freezing temps, struggling through long runs and hikes and drives, all for a view, a sense of accomplishment, maybe a fire Instagram shot. That's what we got here from Colleen O'Neil and her dawn patrol pals. Get her behind-the-photo take below, and keep tagging your Type-whatever fun times #lifepoints for a chance to be on a wrapper like Colleen!
* Brief pause to recap what lifepoints is and how they end up on the wrappers of Picky Bars. #lifepoints encourages people to share their living-life-to-the-fullest moments. Whether it’s a bike ride with an old friend, swing set time with your kids after work, or a soul-cleansing trail run… Anything that makes you think, “Heck yes, this is living right!” Share your photos by tagging them #lifepoints on social media to join the fun and be considered for a future wrapper.

That's what I think #lifepoints is about — the experiences in sports (and life) that make you a uncomfortable at first, but are worth it in the end!"
