Change isn’t Sunshine and Roses…

What makes you think you are going to be able to change without pain?! I recently interacted with someone who quit. They quit on themselves. They quit on their family. They flat out quit on everything… What did they quit over? Being uncomfortable. They couldn’t handle taking responsibility for themselves. If you want to make […]

Consistency isn’t one key to success, it’s the only key to success.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle Someone posed the question to me “How do you continually get up every morning to run & workout despite the time, the weather, and setbacks?” I’ve pondered this question for many days and thought about the “right” answer. Unfortunately, […]

Halloween Hangover…

So you had a bad day… UGH! I can already feel the roughness of the Holidays upon me… It starts with Halloween Candy, moves to a huge Thanksgiving feast and then to Christmas Dinner. The overeating, the chocolate, the endless amounts of sweets. I am not looking forward to the next two months. This is […]

Going Through the Motions…

I wasn’t thrilled about waking up at 3am today… I was tired from the weekend, my body is exhausted, sore and Crossfit was the last the thing I wanted to do today… But, I woke my tail up, got some coffee, got dressed and went to work on myself… Let’s just say it wasn’t my […]

I am a Runner…

3 years ago this weekend I crossed the line of my first half marathon. For some it’s a huge accomplishment. For others it’s a training run. And for most people its “impossible”…. It’s not too often that I want to look at certain things from my past, but the other day a friend of mine […]

I hope you fail…

WHAT?! Why would I want you to fail?! “Persistence is the missing component to success.” No I’m not ruthless. No I don’t get a guilty pleasure out of the pain of others. No I don’t like to see the disappointment of others when they don’t reach their goals. No I don’t want to be better […]

Daddy! Did you sell a car today?

Daddy! Did you sell a car today? Talk about accountability! This is the first question my boys ask when I get home from work. What’s the worst answer I can give them? No… Why? Because their next question is “why’d you go to work then?”. What if you asked yourself the same question about your […]

“I commit not to quit.”

It’s 3:31 am on Sunday morning and I still don’t have a blog written… This is pretty unusual for me, as this is one of the only things I actually look forward to doing during the week. I have nothing earth shattering, profound or interesting to say… For as long winded as I am, I […]

Where do I even start?!?!

So how do I get started? Here’s my advice for taking the first step toward better fitness and health. What’s your “WHY”? What do you REALLY want out of this? Do you want to be healthy, lose some weight or look great in a Speedo? Or do you want to have the energy to play […]
