INSPIRE. IMPACT.

Desert Strength

It’s not that I didn’t think he couldn’t do it… it’s just, I’m already asking A LOT of these runners. So, logically, who in their right mind would take on the weight of an unpredicted additional 26-miles of running on top of an already heavy mileage week of 182-miles in 7 days?

Jay’s Obstacles

Even before he got here, Jay’s segment #2 has been filled with obstacles. Months ago he was mentally shattered with a severe back injury, only to come around and convince me that the Relay was still for him…that he wanted to do it AND that he still could do it. Upon arrival already the first day of his segment was…

Are You Ready?

The two most asked questions I got asked as I was getting ready to leave for the start of the Relay were: “Are you excited?” and “Are you ready?”. The answers easily and truthfully being yes and yes, but what does it take to be “ready” to embark on a 5-month cross-country running RV trip? Well, for me I’ve approached…

Endless Endurance

Well I’m officially on the road again! Wow. Really, what a whirlwind these past four weeks have been! To summarize (ha!), I’ve spent a good amount of my time getting the RV travel-ready, found instructors of my fitness clients, learned (in very general terms) how to film an interview, work my SLR Canon camera, how to save, upload, and edit…
