Love, don't hate Mother Nature

I went our walking earlier today. Put on my snow shoes and attempted to trudge across campus. I needed an hour run on the rec center indoor track and then Black Cat (Mex restaurant) for a Burrito.

Got about 2/3 of the way. That's when the wind ripped my nice rain cover off my backpack and carried it far into the distance. Something inside of me gave up and I turned back for the apartment.

I got back indoor and proceeded to knock the snow out of every part of my apparel. I was coated in white, my snow shoes were packed in ice, and that wasn't nice (a small rhyme there).

While I was doing a few meaningless things, my mind started to whirl. I'm master competitor. I have braved the worst in weather conditions. Hey Mark Carroll, are you out there? Remember the year we were at peak elevation at the Rattlesnake Trail 50K in West Virginia and that bad boy storm moved in? Lightning strikes and we hid out in those caves? Or John Barney, how about the time we did that winter storm Hu…

"Most efficient" strength training on Total Gym

It's a snow day in the North Carolina Mountains. Looking at 12" to 18" of the white stuff in the next couple of days. So what's a prof to do? Thought I'd self-producea video on my latest strength and fitness routine and share it as part of my "Most Efficient" series.

I'm sold on the Total Gym. This simple piece of equipment makes it easy to get a great upper body strength workout in 15 minutes. This has resonated for me, a better fit than all the exercise stations at the gym. Four major positions with 11 motions. Get 'er done and get the results.

Hope you like the video. I have added extra content on how to control the slant board...that can be a problem with those who have balance problems. It's my goal to encourage everyone to make positive changes and enjoy the health and fitness lifestyle.

I'm one month into my new plan for 2016 and it's going well. I'm starting to get that bright inner light and when I'm at my best, I c…

"Most Efficient Weight Loss Technique" video now live on YouTube

What's the plan for 2016? Were you a bit like me, backsliding on the boundaries of good eating? Funneling the fat foods into your gullet over the holidays?

One thing's for certain, there's most always a path back to greatness.


I've done the fat to fit several times, but on those occasions, I had a huge exercise base. Most weeks it was 50 miles running and 200 miles cycling.  But in normal reality, that's not sustainable.

This time around, the focus is on eating first, exercise second. I wanted to support my new plan with a video, so I created another installment in my "Most Efficient" series. If you haven't yet seen my "Most Efficient Running Technique" video, maybe give it a try. The video is to be used in conjunction with "Mind Over Diet" that I published on Amazon in paperback and digital versions.


I won't lie, I probably have as many haters as those who likes that video, but here's the premise of my Most Efficient plat…
