Yes, you DO have what it takes… (Podcast #47)

yes you do have what it takes

Run a marathon and change your life…

It’s no secret that I TRULY believe in the transformative power of running. When I go running for long enough I find my happy place, my mind can wander stress-free, and I can just… be. I realize it doesn’t work for everyone this way, but it does for me, and it does for many others. I’d love for more people to discover this… problem is, so many people out there don’t just think marathons are crazy… they simply think they’re not capable.

How To Embrace The Powerful Secret Weapon Inside You (Podcast #46)

How To Embrace The Powerful Secret Weapon Inside You.

There is REAL power deep inside you

I feel like I talk about this every single day… I also feel like it’s not really given the weight and consideration it deserves. “Belief” has incredible power and weight. Simply believing something hard enough can make it real. Yes, really. I’m saying that belief, attitude, and how you approach life can have real, physical manifestations. Don’t believe me? I’ve got some food for thought that might just change your mind…

3 powerful life lessons I learned in a graveyard

The dead still have plenty to teach us.

I had a plan. It was going to be a good 10 mile mid-week run and I was going to brainstorm for the podcast. I had a topic and I was gonna flesh it out. Then I ran through a graveyard. I don’t know what possessed me to do so… but I did. I’m glad, too. I learned a few powerful things that might not otherwise have occurred to me…

Do You FEEL It?! (Podcast #38)

do you feel it? podcast 38

We’ve got some STRONG feelings about running… sometimes.

When you’re hot, you’re hot… and when you’re into running… boy, you are INTO it! You pour yourself into training, you get your significant other to help out and pick up the slack… you give it everything you’ve got! And God forbid something happens on race day to knock things out of orbit… like an extra half-mile added to your marathon… You’re going to be heartbroken. Or go ballistic. Y’know, depending on your personality.

But what happens when the love is gone?

We’re not ALWAYS going to be in love with running… or fitness for that matter. The question is… what do YOU do when you aren’t feeling it? Do you still do it? Or does it fall by the wayside?

I Found Another Unicorn – NOW Foods

(Disclosure: This post was sponsored by FitFluential on behalf of NOW Foods –  All opinions are very much my own.)

In a word… wow.

“I just wanted to let you know… I am genuinely impressed by the level of honesty, integrity, and care in this company. You guys have something special here… This company has… soul.”

Those are pretty much the words that came out of my mouth on my way to the airport shuttle to come home… just 24 hours after arriving in Illinois for the NOW Foods “Influencer Immersion Event”.

I like to think I’m a pretty smart guy…

but sometimes I still manage to get caught off-guard… and by the time I was leaving the 2 day “Influencer Immersion Event” at NOW Foods headquarters… well… I’d say I was not only caught off-guard… but thoroughly blown away. No, not because of an impressive facility or big revenue numbers… something else. Something much more important and, frankly… very rare in corporate America… Something I found in Anytime Fitness that made me think I found a unicorn. Well… I found another unicorn.
