More than just getting out and adventuring, we started Chasing Sunrise because we wanted to live better, more fulfilling, and more engaged lives.

Yes, life is about the adventure, but it's also about struggle,  and connecting with others going through the journey as well.

There's a realness of life that's often not talked about out in the open. The struggles, 

To not just want to and be able to show up in the good times, but to be able to understand and navigate the realness of life. It's about being able to look back on our lives with zero regrets – knowing we put the important stuff first.

RealTalks is series where conversations about the real side of life can happen – and on Thursady evening, we are inviting you to the first one opened up to the Chasing Sunrise community. We've been having these conversations in our program Damn Early Days, and are excited to bring it to the wider community.

On Thursday evening, we're inviting you for an event we call Real Talks. We hold these events as part of our Damn Early Days program, and after seeing the impact the conversations can have are exploring bringing them to the CS community.

Real Talks are about the reasons we are here, why it matters, what holds us back and what we're all chasing as we go through this life. 

More than just talking though, this will be about connecting with others and getting into some of the ideas and questions that most of us have in our heads but don't talk about enough out loud. Because if there is anything we've learned, it's that who you surround yourself with ultimately determines where you end up.

If you're in, RSVP below. We only have 50 spots available.

See you there.
