What’s up Fam? Had a couple people asking about detox and juicing diets. Some of you may not like this.

Reframing Your Excuses

I talk to a lot of people who deem themselves too busy to get their workouts in. We all talk about the amount of time we have to put into our kids, our work and/or our personal life.

WTF is that Side Stitch While Running

Hey! Had a great question the other day after a couple of rascals pranced around the track, dashing 400m in negative 12 seconds.

Eating Food Before You Sleep

  So I have this issue. It’s really a funny thing. Anytime I eat way too much pizza or pasta before I go to sleep, I wake up anywhere from 1230-2am and can’t go back to sleep for the life of me.

Connecting your Why

  Earlier today I ran up to the rec center. And in case I haven’t told you, I’m on a basketball kick. Basketball is funny to me. It’s a reminder of when I went through my surgeries.
