A friend throughout time

You just never know. You start the day making right turns and then a left turn finds its way in and everything changes. As I write in Hour of the Wolf, life is a constant flipping coin. You make decisions, make choices but everyone else is doing that too. Or a half a inch here […]

The winter of choices

The cold has been challenging. Minus weather is new for us. -9 in the morning but we ventured out to Crossfit. The workout got us warm and sweaty. The drive home reminded me of earlier times when we were growing up in New York and the winter months made each day an adventure. One year […]

The book of your life

The day comes when the book is found on your nightstand. You open it up and each page is blank. The age that you find it differs from person to person. But sooner or later the book is found. An empty book. Each page blank. Yet, the time will come when each page is filled. […]

The door to your destiny

I did the mile. Then I rowed the 2k. Then I did the push presses. Of course all that was done after the warmup of bear crawls. During each exercise you think about stopping, quitting or just sitting down but you don’t. Why? Why not? You keep going because it is you with you seeking […]

Personal best …every day

The words “personal best” stuck with me. We were at Crossfit and hit two personal bests. Back squat at 165 lb and snatch at 90 lbs. But the words stayed with me. Why not in every effort go for your personal best. Test yourself. Challenge yourself. Push yourself. Your life must be going on all […]

Seconds….cherish seconds

The Crossfit WOD took all there was out of all of us. At the end the floor was covered with sweat. The shirts were soaked through. The muscles were aching. The feeling was totally used up. Totally used up. Whatever you are doing be totally used up. Used up is a good feeling. Tapping into […]

The rope climb

I remember being in gym class in school…the early years. The challenge was the rope climb. Climb that rope, touch the ceiling, get back down. Try not to get rope burns. No one wore gloves then so you always “burned” your hands on the rope sooner or later. It was such a test of wills. […]

A light, a stroller and a lesson

It was early. It was around 6:30 am. I had just turned the corner heading to the Crossfit workout. It was still kind of dark. I saw them as I got to the red light. The young mother was pushing what looked to be a stroller. There was something different about it though. I couldn’t […]
