Risk

The mind is a wonderful thing. It’s also a complete liar that constantly tries to convince us not to take actions we know are good for us, and stops many great changes in our lives. Scumbag mind. Read the rest of this great post here, when you get the chance. […]

This is your existence

I apologise in advance for those sensitive to foul language, but the video, all 15min of it, is worth the time. It’s important to me that you watch that, because if you don’t even bother to read this piece once you are done, then that is a success. The message […]

The Ironman Taper

Taking strides towards a better you

I talk about Strides with my athletes a lot. For them, they are 15 second bursts of perfect form, balance and speed during their runs. I find they help us teach ourselves to run with pride and teaches us to run smartly. Strides are also a part of life. With […]
