About Me

My photo
Austin, Texas, United States
I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Inspiration from The Air

Sometimes your life is clouded with despair, scarcity, hopelessness and sadness. You are too drenched in your own misery to see what might be above the clouds. You can't look above the dense fog that hovers around you.

But then, there are those moments of clarity. There are those moments of utter joy and profound happiness. It is during those moments when you literally rise above the clouds and can actually look down and see the peak of your true self...your highest potential.

Those are the moments I want to continue to live for. Those are the moments we should all continue to live for.

It's not every day you get to look out your window and see Mt. Rainier hovering just below you at 14,000ft. Beautiful indeed.

We lived in Oregon for two years prior to Austin so your recent blog entries brought back some good entries...especially since Oregon is where I started running. I miss seeing the Cascades from my bedroom window or while enjoying a beer on my deck.
