When You Have Nothing Left

I’m OK, thumbs up… Wednesday (August 19) – Here’s a question for you as you read this. How do you push yourself to keep going when you really don’t want to? Now some people use competition to drive them, others just try and keep up to the person in front of them. I ask, because I am really interested in...

What Are You Looking At???

@paulperena and his covert selfie… Monday (August 10) – See what happens when you leave your iPhone unsupervised? You find random photos in your Camera Roll. Have you ever had this happen to you? I know that @sarahbassels has. Well the catch for these unattended selfies is that when you have a blog, these selfies become famous. OK, maybe not...

Pushing The Weight

Goals… Wednesday (Aug 5) – Squishy. Not crispy do much, but squishy. My body is still trying to figure out what part of the country it’s in and I am just starting to feel the ache from yesterday’s insanity. My brain is foggy… bigtime. As I rolled out and greeted the World this morning, I was contemplating the running challenge....

Top of the Heap

Living Dangerously, But Can’t Breathe Face Down Monday (July 6) – Well I am certainly feeling Saturday’s 40K when the alarm went off at 430am. Yeah, you read that right. Today was my first class teaching the 6am and 7am classes and as a result the super early wake up. My quads and hips were very tight and my eyes...

Always Easier With a Partner

Monday (June 30) – I’ve survived the first round of @Savannahjessie’s birthday month, but only just. My body feels absolutely great. I don’t remember the last time I said that and actually meant it. Aside from some stiffness in my shoulders, my knees feel almost 80% better and my Achilles hasn’t been nearly as bad. Who knew that Vitamin C...

Fighting For It

Aftermath of the Fight Thursday (June 25) – As you follow this saga from P90X, to GoodLife to my home at @CrossFitCanuck, there have been ups and downs along the way. You have been sitting right beside me as I hit victories (My First Duathlon, The Half Marathon and when I competed in my first Open) and the inevitable setbacks...

Catching a Meteor

Monday (April 20) – Press the reset button, the weekend is over and we are back to it. This Monday is a little bit different and I will tell you why (really, you have no choice since I’m the one writing this, but I promise it will be worthwhile). Today is another birthday at @CrossFitCanuck (geez, there was a whole...

When Your Bodywash is Trying to Kill You

Normal Dial Bodywash… Or so you would think Friday (April 10) – So Bruce (you remember Bruce, my coworker who ran his first Half Marathon last year) brought in a book called ‘How to Know if Your Cat is Trying to Kill You’ in to work. I didn’t read it, but I felt that the author caught the disposition of...
