Proposed by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, the positive psychology concept has been widely referenced across a variety of fields.

Blood Game

Posted by Picasa
30 days of running. I started running 3 days ago.
Day one: 1 Mile
Day Two: 2.3 Miles
Day Three: 4.5 Miles

30 days of paleo. I started yesterday. Thank goodness my bachelor party is in 31 days!

I weigh 197lbs. I plan to be 187lbs in 30 days. At the 2010 games I will weigh 185lbs. Snatch 250lbs 30 muscle ups in sub 5 minutes 50 hand stand push ups in 5 minutes. I will run a 5 minute mile. I will run a 19minute 5k. I rope climb on command with no legs multiple sets. I will have 60 pull ups in 60 seconds. I will deadlift over 500lbs. and back squat 455lbs. I will clean and Jerk 3oolbs. I will master my emotions and be a headhunter with precision. I will eat like a caveman and live like one too. How will I do this you ask? I will seek out the highest level of coaching in the market. I will read and study endlessly and become the maker of my day.

2008 games was a glimpse of possibilities 2009 games was a wake up call. 2010 games will be the beginning of an era. I will not stop I will forge ahead with a relentless commanding spirit.

My body is my slave and my master mind is hungry......

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit. -Napoleon Hill

As I take time to recover from the Crossfit Games I am plowing the field of my mind of old ways, old habits, old beliefs that will consistently bring about similar out comes.

I will be ready a couple more days of rest though ; )

The Crossfit Games 2009 are over. I placed 16th after not finishing the last WOD do to a pulled lat muscle. This weekend was a challenge on many fronts. The workouts were only part of the hurt. I will be writing more about the event as I decompress from the weekend.

Thanks for all the support from Crossfit Central team roadies. Carey Kepler my sister took third place this year. I am proud of her! Crystal took 9th with a phenomenal showing from her.

Over the Edge!

Hard work. I just got off the phone with my Dad. He has been farming for over 35 years.... Squash farmer. I grew up going to the farm at the age of 10. I started out hoeing weeds and grading turnips. I also would go to the farmers market with my cousin and sell veggies to customers. My first practice as a business man. 10 - 12 years old is to young to start working right? No way I think every kid should start working minimal hours(10 - 15) at the age of 10. I learned more from working on the farm then I could have any where else. 14 - 16 years of age I would work between 40 - 60 hours a week driving tractors, loading trucks, and picking squash. I hated it but I knew it was good for me. I am thankful for every thing I have and will not forget where I came from. Love you Dad and Mom :)!

By the Way Whats up with the Video? Kris Kepler sent it to me and I cant stop watching it. I feel like I am at a Crossroads in my life. I get married in three months the Crossfit Games are in 5 days. I am ready to take my life to the next level and I have all the tools to do it. I am more excited about life today then ever before! God Bless

The day is coming....... Relentless..... machine...... attack ...... attack......


7 years ago I would listen to this song over and over and over. I was lost, confused, depressed and only had faith. Faith that my life had a purpose greater then me.I was going to do something beautiful for God. 18 - 25 years of age was the desert of my life. I was seeking, hungry and had no mentors. I would go to coffee shops for hours reading books hoping that the course I was taking was the right one.

Today I can say I am unfolding so rapidly I love my life and all the blessings I have received. I am eternally grateful.

Today I have moved to a new Certainty that comes from my hearts of hearts. I am Certain that we as a community will build a brighter present and future. I am certain that we can make today brighter by bringing life to the lifeless. I am ready I am ready I am fine............
