From Zero To 70.3
(Note: this is a race report I wrote in November, but had no place to publish. So, a bit out of order here and a slightly different style than other writing on Cheaply Seeking Fitness. I thought I'd share it anyway.) 70.3 miles...it’s not a distance I enjoy...

I finally tried Hoka's. My first impression.
At the Skydive Ultra, my biggest difficulty was pain in the soles of me feet. I think this is to be expected to some degree, particularly for a larger and heavier runner. But running the first 29 miles in fairly minimalist Me...

Just running doesn't seem to be enough any more. So I'm setting a new, crazy goal for myself.

Stunning Strava Skydive
So, I got my wife (and her brother and father) out for a skydive this weekend. Following the Skydive Ultra , I knew I had to get her to jump out of a plane once. After that, I'd be happy to be done with skydiving, or happy to do more if she wanted to. Anywa...

Am I Having a Mid-Life Fitness Crisis?
I'm 37 years old today. I don't generally make a big deal about my birthday. My father's funeral was held on my birthday many years ago, and it's just a bittersweet date ever since then. However, 37 feels old. In fact, I told my wife I'm officially middle a...

The Garmin data from my skydive this weekend is pretty stinkin' interesting. The first step, what a doozy!

Ouch! That run sucked.
15 days after the Skydive Ultra , and I finally decided to get out for a moderately long run again. 12 miles, not a big deal. I've run dozens of 12 mile or longer runs over the past several months.  At least that's what I thought. And, boy, was I wrong. I t...

I’m a strong believer that exceptional businesses and business-owners should be singled out and lauded for their efforts, so have taken a few moments to write down some thoughts about CrossFit CVI. I hope to encourage you as a reader of this review to give this place a try. A visit to CrossFit CVI improves any day. A bad do goes to bearable, an average day becomes a good one, and a great day ends up wonderful after an hour at CVI. I generally find my way to CrossFit CVI 4 or 5 times per week, and have been doing so for about six months. This is my first meaningful CrossFit experience and it has been nothing short of magnificent. Perhaps it’s simply the CrossFit way (I believe this to be somewhat true based on what I’ve heard from people who attend other gyms), but I also think that there is something unique about CrossFit CVI. It all begins with the purveyor of this establishment, Edwin Morales. While it feels too mild and too simply a statement, Edwin is a bona fide genuinely caring and nice person. That “nice” is reflected in the way he runs his business, the way he interacts with the people in his gym and I suspect the way he leads his life. Even on the busiest days, when the warehouse is loaded with people, Edwin goes out of his way to acknowledge everyone there. On those busy evenings it may be no more than a quick fist-bump and “what’s up”, but it happens every single visit. On slower days, Edwin takes time not just to see how things are going with workouts, but also to ask about how my kids are doing and how life is in general. Edwin’s way of approaching his business and interaction with the members of his gym sets the entire culture of the place. I’m an exceptionally introverted individual and have a very difficult time approaching others. However, from the first moment I walked in to CrossFit CVI, I’ve felt it to be nothing but welcoming. There is always a member or coach ready to greet a new face. People are extremely friendly and congenial. Even on my low energy days when I feel particularly stand-offish and quiet, members seem willing to engage and speak with me when I feel ready and not offended when I back away from dialog. The coaches mirror Edwin’s demeanor and are always extremely helpful and friendly, interacting with everyone and spending extra time with those who need it most. The culture is one of inclusiveness, of genuine friendship, of support and of enjoyment. Friendships extend beyond the gym. Social activities are regular occurrences. This culture, above all else, makes CrossFit CVI a unique and wonderful place to spend time and spend one’s fitness money. The workouts... well it’s CrossFit. You’ll get your butt kicked. You’ll feel miserable. You’ll learn to love the misery and pain of the workouts. The first few times you go you may think that CrossFit isn’t for you. Then, if you stick with it a bit longer, you’ll learn that you can do so much more than you thought possible. You’ll discover that what you thought was your limit was just the starting line. You’ll become faster, stronger, smarter, feel better, look better. You’ll have a miserable work-out and want to never go back, then in a subsequent workout do something seemingly magical and feel on top of the world and know CrossFit is the right thing for you. If you’re looking for a place to get into shape and wondering about giving CrossFit a shot, this is the place to try. This is a place I genuinely enjoy paying to be a member of. It and the people who belong to it are becoming indispensable parts of my life. I can think of no greater testament than that.

Poor excuse for a lunch Reuben. Corned beef was not flavorful and the sauerkraut totally bland. Disappointing.
