“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 […]

Tracking your Eating Habits

Eating has been and continues to be the hardest thing for me to control… After I found out I wasn’t going to be able to run for a while after the Colfax Marathon, I knew a few things needed to change if I’m still going to be successful in Leadville. Here’s my simple little notebook […]


It’s been a couple days since I finished the Colfax Marathon and I can’t seem to smile… Everything seems to be a little tougher. I’m more tired than I’ve been in months and have had twice the sleep. I can’t quite seem to get this frown to turn upside down… I keep asking myself WHY??!! […]

I have had some conversations with people lately that includes coaching and helping other achieve their goal(s) so that is exactly what I’d like to do. If you (or someone you know) would be interested in changing something in your life, please let […]


It doesn’t seem to matter what runner you talk to, all of us have experienced doubt. Some have it during a recovery week. Many while injured or coming off a mentally or physically challenging week. Others while tapering. The good news is if you have a solid plan and have been following your plan with […]

Why don’t I see the results yet?!

Take the action UNTIL!!! Don’t give up just because you don’t see results right now. Be Positive Be Patient Be Persistent

A little bit more can’t make a difference, right?!

“Doing the things you don’t have to do will always determine the difference when it’s too late to do anything about it.” Jackie B. Cooper I may get fired for telling this story, but the life lesson is so valuable… I had a guy in my office today to pay his bill. I asked if […]

So you think I’m an extrovert

Get Uncomfortable to Find Improvement I’d be willing to bet if I asked you- am I an introvert or an extrovert? I think you’d pick extrovert. Am I right? If we were to sit next to each other on the bus or a plane, you probably wouldn’t hear a word out of me unless you started […]
