The box jump and taking flight

Saying it is one thing. Doing it is another. Trying to do it is fine but just doing it is the key. It is so easy to not commit. But there we were..again..at Crossfit. This time it was wall climbing, toes to bar, weighted sit ups, hollow rocks but also the box jump. Such a […]

The light spot found in the heavy weight

Crossfit and the meaning of a single day. The question keeps swirling around about why this program is so intoxicating. It can’t be just the workout. Yes, it is varied, challenging, different each day, fun and exhausting at the same time  but it has to be more than that. It comes down to a question […]

Cracking the riddle

You have to decide. There is that moment when waiting is no longer an option. But when exactly is that moment?  That moment of decision. The sweet spot.  Only in hindsight does it really make sense.

A state of grace

It had been quite a while since the Crossfit workout almost brought me to my knees and nausea. I mean they are all challenging and test your very fiber but this one was different. I don’t know why but just was. The 20 minutes ticked off like the clock was broken and only worked sporadically. […]

The living legacy

Well , I looked for one or more books that brings together my take on this improbable journey we are all on.  Although I found bits and  pieces here and there, I decided to see if I could put it down in one place. So  I started to write my story to see if it […]

Pushing past the ordinary

As we finished the Sunday Crossfit , which included 90 wall ball shots along with bench presses, clean and jerks, handstand holds and a bunch of other exercises, I wondered why we do it…especially on a Sunday morning. Then I realized why. Passion. Passion for the day. Passion for our journey each day. Passion for […]

A sigh and an echo

Have you ever been in such a quiet place that you could feel or sense your own pulse?  It is the sense of feeling the blood flowing through your body. Life running through your veins. You touch your wrist and feel the movement of life. As I sat in our home today and watched the […]
