#21 – Winter Warriors & Why We Do It

Podcast Ep 21 Winter Warriors & Why We Do It

It’s always easier to “not”.

It doesn’t take much for us to stay in bed, sit on the couch, and otherwise simply NOT do it. When you factor in the bitter cold, snow, wind, and all-around poor conditions of winter… you can just forget the whole “getting outside for a run” thing. Maybe that’s why folks who DO go out there and run despite the winter chill are called “winter warriors”.

It’s not such a crazy concept, when you really break it down… and understanding the “why”? Well…if you’re in this fitness thing, or you’re even THINKING about it… I bet you’ll get it.

There’s plenty to go over in this episode…

#20 – We All Only Get One Shot To Live

Podcast Ep 20 title image

By now, we know how I feel about “limits”.

If you’ve ever heard my podcast or read the blog you KNOW – I am a FIRM believer that the only limits we TRULY have are the ones we set for ourselves. Well, I might not have really stopped to think how or why we imagine those limits to exist in the first place.

Now, I’m thinking about it a little more.

I think I understand, just a little bit better, what keeps some people from taking the plunge. Why some of the, seemingly, most interested people ultimately leave the gym without joining. Prepare for one of those… “ooooohhhhh…” moments.

#19 – 2017, Goalsetting, & Getting Uncomfortable

Podcast Ep 19 2017, goalsetting, & getting uncomfortable

If you’re going to get somewhere…you have to know how to get there. In order to know HOW to get there… don’t you first have to know WHERE it actually is you’re going? Goalsetting. It’s probably the most important step of the whole “achieving your goal” process.

Welcome to the reason why New Year’s (fitness) resolutions fail – all this ambition backed by no goal and no plan.

Sometimes you figure it out. Sometimes you can push. You keep achieving your goals as they get progressively harder. Eventually…the next logical goal makes you REALLY uncomfortable…
Well gee…guess we just have to figure that out, eh? Don’t worry…it’s not as bad as it sounds 🙂

#18 – The New England Spahtens, OCR, & A New Year

(Apologies for the double-publish…technical difficulties earlier)

There’s just not enough time in the day (or in the podcast) sometimes. So many things to talk about… Well, today I cover three BIG things! Two of them I cover REALLY well! One is…well…just tough to talk about with saying the same thing everyone else has already said.

 

The spotlight here is…The New England Spahtens.

 

Who, what, why, and how. And more, of course 🙂 And I’ve got Paul Jones to tell me allllll about it.

I continue to be floored & impressed by the people I meet.

If you believe the best in humanity, you’ll encounter it…and that’s exactly what happened on frigid Millinocket weekend. Katrina White is an AMAZING person, someone who’s story I can only call a True Triumph. I am thrilled to have her on the show to share that story and shine a little light on the hope that awaits every single person out there hoping to make a transformation.
