Why is this blog here?

I write this blog โ€“ a series of letters to myself โ€“ to chronicle my journey of of doing difficult things. The spark for this endeavor was my attempt to come out of a dark period in my life. I was overweight, feeling emotionally flat, and struggling with important relationships. On top of that, Iโ€™d just experienced a failed business and I was grappling with feelings of failure and self-worth.

Instinctively, I knew that doing something very hard would require me to focus my mind, body, and spirit in a way that would force them all into alignment. Triathlons are what I chose, and Ironman Texas 2020 became my ludicrous goal. I didnโ€™t think I could do it, but I decided to go after it anyway.

I donโ€™t want to lose the lessons along the way, so I share many of them here.

Feel free to leave a comment or send an email with your thoughts, Iโ€™d love to hear from you.

I sit a lot, ride bikes a lot and my hips are very tight. As a consequence, I donโ€™t get full range of motion as I exercise and am unable to fully tap into my power (thinking about running).

So, yoga benefit #738 - unlock your body to more fully express your power and go faster for longer ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ.
