An open letter to my previous self

An open letter to my previous self. I was cleaning some old emails out and found a set of goals I had written in 2012. (Included at the end) The date was 12/12/12 of all days. As I was reading them, I started to get a little emotional. One, I can’t believe how low some […]

Cut the B.S.- There is no “magic” to losing weight.

Cut the B.S.- Weight loss is a process not a product. I’ve been reading several weight loss blogs recently and I’m disappointed to say the least. I’m not the kind of guy that has to be “right”, but there are so many people going after weight loss the wrong way. You can’t buy your way […]

Christmas Hangover

I don’t know about you, but today is a day too late to remember what I should’ve have done yesterday… In fact having the last week off and not having my normal routine has put a stop to my momentum. I haven’t stepped on the scale and weighed this much in months… I know I […]

It took me a while to decide to write about this because in the moment, I felt like I failed miserably… The only reason I have been doing Crossfit for the last couple months is because of the nutrition challenge. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve heard awesome things about it for a long time and […]

2016 Goals

I’ve been lost for a while without a major plan to move forward… After a long look at 2016 personally and professionally, I have decided it is time to take the next step. As many of you know, I have a full time job, overtime family and fitness goals that keep me going for both. […]

Mixed Emotions

WOW! I’m still a little high from the entire weekend. I’m also a little bummed…  The race was definitely epic! The costume was right on and I forgot I was running the first 12 miles. This is the joy I get from running. It’s also pretty funny- I now have so much energy. I would […]

Revel Rockies Recap

Well I did it again… I paid to run 26 miles. The first marathon I ran I was so overwhelmed with emotion I think I forgot to enjoy it. This one, I enjoyed every moment and I’m still smiling and dwelling on every second of the race and after. My pleasure has been overshadowed by […]

Well, I did it. It’s been 24 hours since I crossed the finish line and I’ve had some time to enjoy the moment and thank everyone that helped get me from where I was to where I am now. I have been told a thousand times that training for a marathon would change my life. […]
