Impossible is Nothing!

Photoed: Kyle Maynard, Zach Even-Esh, JT

One week ago I traveled to Miami Fl for Crossfit Filfest. I was able to meet a lot of new people and see old friends. Kyle Maynard was the motivational speaker on NO EXCUSES! Kyle is a world class human and a super athlete!

Each day I wake up I am moving to achieve my goals or moving away from my goals. The choice is the key that every one holds in there hands!

Get some!

Smoked Again!?

Who's Dave Castro and Charlie? Good question because I got smoked by Dave twice now in the past 3 months. Each workout has been a team workout? So I could blame it on someone else but if you see Leo he is a Russian BAD A#% and had me sucking wind. The first workout I got beat I was partnered Lance Cantu and Lisa Bender two Bad A@$ as well?! Dave didnt have to bad of team either Ryan Williams former Seal and two other seals. So the question is when will I get a show down with Dave one on one? This could be the best workout challenge of the millennium!

Any one want to see that!?

Sectionals Ouch Yeah!

Carey K, JDP and my self where able to do all of the Central Southern Sectionals WODS! I am feeling really confident with the programing and the ability to show a broad range of movements and skills.

How are you training for sectionals? Sectionals is one event before regional comp then on to the Games! How do you plan to ramp of your training over the next five months without burning out early?

Beyond all Obstacles

I am disciplined, relentless, crazy dedicated to my family friends and God. I seem to come up short more times then hitting the mark. Self will can take you so far but I believe the super natural can take you the distance. I have had much success in my short little life but none would be obtained with out the many blessing from God.

Lent starts on Wednesday and I will take 40 days to focus my spiritual energy's and will expect mountains to move!

Work + Faith = Results

Song for you

ShowOut your Life!

Ok so it has been pointed out to me many times by my lovely wife and many others that my black and white non-color attire is lame. So in many attempts to broaden my horizons and not be so boring I need to get with some color. The title is inspired by my lovely associate Megan Parsons! She is always dresses "ShowOut" and her blog says it quietly!

So here is the deal I will commit to adding one color to my attire daily to liven up my boring and overly serious demeanor. Hey maybe people will like me?! LULULEMON Austin Texas Store front.

Relentless is an attitude and away of life.
Relentless is a child like desire for what it wants.
Relentless does not stop when the going gets tough.
gets up in the morning when it doesn't feel like it.
Relentless is reliable as a workout partner and a team mate.
Relentless is a constant positive action, slow or fast moving to achieve its goals.

Forging Elite Minds

If you dont know the bulldogs you're missing out! This crew is one of the most fun, dynamic, and corky groups you can find. Every day on the black top is an adventure. We talk politics, life, celebrity gossip and some days we end class with 5 minutes of meditation. Some of the crew call our class adult P.E and just decompress after a long day. I have been training this crew for 2 1/2 years and I love it!

We are some what celebrates too. Check us out!

Smile while you talk!

A couple of weekends ago I attended Advocare Success School and Andy Andrews spoke. The one key he said was most crucial out of all 7 was smile while you talk. I really have to work on this one but with my super joker grin I cant hide it! You know!

Georgia must know the secret! She is smiling while she sits on a trigger point ball. Georgia is a super special person I look forward to getting to know her. She is helping with the CST Sectional as head of Volunteers.

I have been praying for this day for two years! The challenge, the call, can you make it happen?

The one true question we all face in life.

Do I have what it takes to get the job done?

I have shifted from gear 1 2 3 to gear 4. Fire in the belly

Fire in the belly is where creation happens. The reason why fire in the belly doesn't happen for the majority of people...... they wont last through gear 1. Resistance and Gear 2. Sucking.

A key to success is consistency.

The story of the rabbit and the tortoise come to mind. I always wanted to be the rabbit but I am starting to learn the tortoise had much more to offer.

Burning Desire

God Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Over the last four years I have co-labored with a lot of people creating with intention. I have been thinking a lot about the phrase "you must slow down to speed up" does it hold any ground?

I am personally taking the time to slow down. Lets see what happens!
