Let me hear ya!

I've talked about motivation, accountability and setting goals. This I'll continue and will be a weekly part of the blog. In addition, I want to hear from all of you. What motivates you to stick with it? What sort of goals have you set and how do you hold yourself accountable? Believe it or not, we just might be able to learn from each other. Feel free to send me any questions that you might have about training, eating, shoes and clothing or just getting started. I'll pick out a couple questions and post them on the blog. Also, we'd love to hear suggestions about must try wine, beer, cigars, books to read, where to eat, places to go and people to meet. That stuff is every bit as important as exercise in the broad scheme of things. For those of you that have been asking about products, I do have some that I like to use on my website under the "buy products" tab. I'll add more as time goes on. Send any recommendations that you might have for necessary or outstanding gear that you think others would be interested in. Of course I had to find a couple links to help motivate you through the rest of the week. This link is to an amazing human being that has overcome extreme adversity to motivate other's. And this is a story from a 29 year old kid that I know continues to motivate him today. Remember the old Chinese proverb, "The journey of a 1,000 miles begins with one step." Today that journey begins with putting down the chicken wings and remote control. Get out there and enjoy this fabulous day! Work Hard and Play Harder!
