"And that's the thing about hope. In the moment when you feel it, it can seem foolish or sentimental or disconnected from reality. But hope knows that people change on a timeline that we can't predict. We can never know the power that a word of kindness or an act of forgiveness will have on the person who needs it most."

Weekly Training Thoughts - A Ragged Return to Running
It's time to write my first weekly training thoughts post. I'm wondering how to approach this. Matter-of-factly, with statistics and hard numbers on my training? A stream-of-conscience bit just rambling on with musing about last week's training? Perhaps som...

I'm not a New Year's resolution person at all. However, as 2016 approaches, I have considered that there are some habits I plan to try to implement in the new year. These aren't resolutions, just things I'm going to do more or less of.

1) Sleep more and eat better.
2) Put down the phone & laptop more often, and enjoy people & nature more.
3) Read books on paper (I love the convenience of ebooks, but have found I just read much less than I used to since I switched to ebooks.)
4) Write...every day. Even if it's garbage. Just write.
5) Reengage with my profession.

I'm not sure either, but I find it interesting. Probably some interesting psychology research to be done here . . . 

Happy New Year to you and your family.

Weekly Training Thoughts - Feelin' Great!
March 14th-20th - Due to some unexpected planning I must get done, this post will be a bit abbreviated. No in-depth thoughts on each sport, just some high level thoughts on my training week in general. The big take-away...I'm feeling great with my training!...

Anatomy of a DNF
When you're out to push your limits, eventually those limits will smack you in the face. This weekend I participated in the Skydive Ultra 100 mile ultramarathon. I didn't finish. I didn't even get close. It was pretty much a disaster. And I should have seen...

2015 Review and 2016 Preview
2015 was a huge year from a fitness perspective for me. Perhaps not "cheap", but my goal of seeking fitness was certainly met. I pretty much met all my goals in terms of fitness during the year, and I tacked on a monster bonus achievement at the end of the ...

Excellent breakfast. Room was quiet and bed was comfortable. Shower water pressure was poor.

Good breakfast selection. Nice, quiet hotel. And lots of eclectic little eateries nearby.

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.

I was quite impressed by the hotel, and had no idea what was sitting in the middle of an office complex. Conference rooms were comfortable and food provided was very nice for a large group. Most importantly, good quality coffee!

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