Competition is the easy part

Lahti, Finland. Lane 8 is the worst lane. But who cares, if it is at the Masters Track and Field World Championships.

The paradox of doing something well is what we always see versus what no one ever sees.

Competition is the easy part, this is is the hard part…

Training.

In track.

In life.

Subtract 5 years

Lane 8 is about impossible goals, like a lifetime of staying vibrantly healthy.

Some people nag. Some people ignore. Eventually, the two meet. Hopefully, they can become friends.

Note: In 2012, i posted this video on a different blog.

Mid Life Celebration saw this coming but couldn’t prove it.

Stress clouds our thinking

Stress releases cortisol.

Cortisol clouds our thinking.

Cloudy thinking could be keeping you from cardio, strength, nutrition, rest, core, flexibility, and motivation.

Going the extra inch is like exercise

Ran two miles yesterday without pain. Remarkable.

Going the extra inch is like exercise.

You can consistently make small (inches) choices like taking the stairs, parking in the last row, going to bed early, and always having apples and bananas in your kitchen (for snacking, or dessert).

Don’t let what you can’t do – train for a half-marathon – stop you from what you can do (the little things that add up).

Owners own everything

Glacier national Park
Hidden Lake Trail at Logan Pass. July 2018.

Owners own everything.

On Wednesday May 1, i proposed an introductory call. We had yet to speak and i figured the reason he hadn’t proposed a call was he is as busy as me, etc. So i initiated the phone meeting and we spoke Thursday, May 2.

It went great. Super excited to help him out; maybe a month ago, as a casual favor to a colleague, i offered to do it for free.

The call ended with him talking about the video recording of the speech. This completely caught me off guard. How does he not know i don’t allow video or audio recording? Period. He acknowledged he couldn’t find any. There’s no speaker footage of me anywhere, since 1999 when i began speaking.

In the moment, i made a judgement call to end our call graciously and to allow a good night’s sleep to see if it was time to lift the 20-year “lifetime” recording ban. Wanted to be open minded.
