Very rarely do I meet anyone who does not desire to improve their life. Even the people who claim everything is great and simply want to keep it status quo have something they wish they could do better. Yet, how often do you see people getting out of the rut and truly changing their lives. Unfortunately, not as often as we would like.

Living outside the city in the suburbs my biggest challenge with running shoes is finding one that is rugged for the trails but light and smooth for the roads, so as soon as my Salomon X-Scream trail-running shoes came in the mail I was excited to lace them up and test them out on the roads / trails.
The first thing I noticed (besides the vivid bright colors) are the laces. They are a single lace adjustment similar to a snowboarding boat that tucks away the extra cord int...Read Full Post »

As a kid I recall playing baseball with the other kids in the neighborhood. On one particular day we were playing automatic baseball. The rules were something similar to ground ball is a single, if it bounce and you catch it it’s a double, and over the outfielders head is a home run.
A play that stands out in my mind is one when my teammate was up at bat and I was playing the field (we were short on people). The ball was lobbed over the plate, he swing and cranked i...Read Full Post »

Recently I have been training a young tennis player. This young gentleman is 14 years old and we started going over basic motor control during exercises in order to avoid injury when he reaches to appropriate age to “load up” his training volume and frequency.
While working with this athlete the other day I started thinking about myself at his age during track. I remember being part of something bigger than myself and the life lessons that come with understandi...Read Full Post »
