Some Recent Happenings

A lot has been going on in the last couple of weeks.  Cristi and I were in Charlotte, NC at CrossFit Davidson giving a seminar on the basic lifts.  The owners Jane Elizabeth and Jason are super folks and the attendees were eager to learn.  Really we didn't have to do much except fine tune a few things because Tim Riemer has done a great job working on their fundamentals.  Afterwards we ate sushi and imbibed in a few Double Dogs to finish out the night.

James and I also visited my oldest son, Donald, while we were in North Carolina.  My buddy Jimmy Anderson drove up from Spartanburg on his Harley and James couldn't wait to get a picture.

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
