I did a double at Tweetsie Trail Trek

Had a great time in two great communities this morning. Made the short drive over to Johnson City, TN and made a big time of it at the Tweetsie Trail Trek. 
It was the grand opening of an all new, crushed rock greenway that connects Johnson City and Elizabethton. I wanted to double up on the fun, so I arrived around 7 am, got my race pack (thanks Daniel Reese for holding my pack from pick up the night before) and then ran the 4.5 mile segment from the finish to the start point in Elizabethton. When the race commenced, I ran the return leg back to Johnson City.

It was a great old school start with local politicians, a rendition of "God bless America," a ribbon cutting for the trail, a prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance, the Star Spangled Banner, then the start...which was a blast on the whistle from a Tweetsie locomotive.

Runner went first, then walkers, and later in the day. cyclist. It was an "all in" event for everyone who wanted to participate.

"Mind Over Diet" video touts self-negotiation

Finally had the opportunity to edit a video for my new book. It's short and sweet, but in today's social media marketplace, that's the best way to communicate with potential customers.

Making a few comments brought back my motivation and interest for this project. Self-negotiating your own diet and fitness program takes effort, but knowledge is power.

Hope you enjoy it.
