The Man in the Mirror…

I’ve always been afraid of who I am. I’ve always been afraid of sounding arrogant and cocky… I’ve always been scared of pushing people away. I’ve always thought people are getting tired of my “story”. So I have held back what I really think… I’ve held back how I truly feel about myself and my […]

The Pain of Running 100 Miles is Nothing…

Disclosure: I wrote this within the week after my race. I have modified it with a clear mind. I’m not looking for sympathy or any other sad feelings, but many people ask me all sorts of questions and this sums up the “big” questions other than the race itself. I am still working on the […]

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, […]

Your mind has been working to avoid pitfalls, fatigue, and pain. You haven’t eaten as much as you should in the past 24 hours. You are dehydrated and thirsty but […]

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 can’t take it anymore… Just set HIGH GOALS!!!

Look. Don’t listen to the B.S. of working toward “realistic” goals. I can’t stand when people say you should only work toward something that you think is “achievable”. I have read a lot on goals. I study them, set my own and I teach how to set and work toward goals. If there is one […]

It’s only been a year but it’s here!!!
