So, how many of you have heard of this event called the Tough Mudder? It is way more of an event more than it is a race as the mindset is to leave no one behind. The course I did at NorthStar at Lake Tahoe was 11 miles long and riddled with brutal obstacles. What? An 11 mile obstacle course, built on a mountain, with a star above 4000ft above sea level? Yeah, that was it. This is just the generic promo, and I must say, it does not do the race justice.

This is just more proof about the BS in the “Diet” industry. Eat healthy, eat smart and you will do yourself a great deal of good.
I’ll post more later on where my head is at heading into my goal race of the season, but if you want a peek inside, this triathlete preparing for Escape from Alcatraz next week could pretty much be my twin. Only it’s not my neck that looks all busted up like that, if ya kno whud I mean.

This may be the first in a series of overly preachy posts. :) I just put this on our Facebook Page.
“Fitness is not always about working out. I was just talking to a friend of mine about a pretty tough situation. And it got me thinking. (Yeah Scary)
So, his friend who is married and has kids, is in a bit of a tough spot. Due to the economy, or depression, or some combination of things, he is having a real tough time with his business. (He sells insurance) Well, as his income has diminished (a fact it seems he has been keeping from his wife) he has become more and more panicked. To the point of putting on weight (to be expected), getting very depressed (to be expected) and not seeing a way out of his situation.
This has me thinking about “us,” our community of friends and close acquaintances. We really need to make sure we are supporting each other as many ways as possible. We need to be there to give a hand when necessary, or help direct them down a better path.
It’s time to get your eating back in order, and your life back on track. Sometimes we need a reset before we can start making headway. THIS IS YOUR RESET! Not a fad, not some internet mumbo jumbo. A science based diet/health reset to get you ready to take on the challenge of meeting your fitness goals.
(My words, not the some companies!)

I have googled other people, but nothing comes up. Oh Well.
I finished the course and took the test today. I kicked ass! I am here to help you people! Drop me a note here on on Facebook!
That’s right people, I have already passed the first BeachBody P90X test, and after attending this weekends 2 day seminar (and my last 5 years of personally using P90X) I will be able to officially RUN P90X classes at my martial arts school! Can you was AWESOME!
Still using BeachBody products, still seeing results, still kicking ass and still pushing play!
I have done reviews of all the Insanity Asylum Workouts on the blog before, and I have now gotten a great feel for how good the workout is on the go. I have been in Las Vegas for the last 3 days for my day job, and I was a week into a new Asylum cycle. Instead of procrastinating and NOT working out, I packed a resistance band and my BeachBody workout ladder. Each ~45 minute workout was practically made for a hotel room. As long as you have even a small amount of space, you can get a great sweat going. Today I am doing Relief, and the only thing I don’t have for this workout is my yoga mat. (So, time to grab a hotel towel and use that instead.)
I’m just stoked as to how easy it is to get back on the workout wagon when you put your mind to it.
Keep pushing play!
