It’s hard to explain why the trail camp we put on for veterans and surviving family members has the impact it does. It’s not because what we do is complicated. We run for two and a half days. We teach skills like hill running, technical trail running, speed work, aid station strategies, nutrition, first aid etc. etc. We do all that exceptionally well, but that’s not the reason why everyone involved from veterans to surviving family members to paying participants to the mentors themselves leave the camp feeling rejuvenated, happy and hopeful. We manage to encapsulate and simulate the experiences […]

By building, and committing to, a routine we teach ourselves how to endure challenging times and be present amongst positive times. Along the wild ride that 150 episodes of this podcast has brought me one of the most important lessons that I have learned is to be consistent. Consistency is applicable to all facets of life and it allows you to build not only your skills at the task at hand, but also yourself. By committing each day to accomplishing activities that positively fulfill you, you are bettering yourself. I would never have been able to reach where I am at in life without the practice of consistency. However, life is a process and you will fail and falter. You will not always be consistent with your tasks, but perfection is not the goal. Being better is the goal and that only comes through taking each step along the journey, as I have done on this podcast, with peace, presence, and perseverance.

As a runner, I love exploring a new city, a new beach or a new mountain by foot. It helps me with jet-lag, gives me energy and allows me to see a new place as I run past new smells, colors and people. All while taking it in at my own pace. Running while traveling, […]
