Cannot explain how epic this was. 

Spent the entire day in here hiking. So incredible. First, I did it without food to highlight energy conservation, where it comes from and how it made it's way to you. To think about how much we actually need versus want, and what the true cost of that is. 

Second, with only drinking the water from the creek to highlight the importance that water is life. That we need to protect clean water. Keep a watch out for a little video I’ll put together on this day, and this entire weekend of goodness I’ve embarked on.

If anyone knows West Fork, I think i almost made it to FSR 231, but needed to turn back for my ride back. (you must know that beyond the first narrows, mile 3 the next 11 there is NO TRAIL at all) so bloody epic. If you don’t connect with something greater, I don’t know what to say. Don’t get me wrong, I was prepared if shit hit the fan. But to go in and really rely upon the water being pure and clean, and to really have to be conscious of energy c...

 what a ride. thank you everyone for the love an support, being there as well as checking in on myself and Nani. Much Love. All is good. Enjoyed getting more than I ever had out of myself for this one. Stronger in every way I know, as of today. Was so grateful my brother was able to come and spend a week with me. So good for the soul. Very special to be able to do that also with our Mother. Forever grateful for her. Been enjoying a break from structured days. Hiking, Swimming, skiing, yoga, Mountain bike, exploring, the cooler temps and season change and more.  Feels good to just chill and let go.

All things behind me. All good things ahead.

Been an eventful last couple months. Tons of growth. Tons of learning.

No man steps in the same river twice, as it's never the same river nor the same man. Grateful for what I've been able to see and do and all those along the way who've believed in me and given that unconditional support. Certainly not the way I'd have wanted Wolrd Championship to go, but I can say I was capabale and enjoyed fully the immersion into getting to that level.

Learning to let go of some sort of result or outcome, yet enjoying the process to hopefully take advantage of the opportunity when it arises. When it doesn't pan out, taking that growth and learning, then applying it better when given the next opportunity. It really is amazing to see how many people support and believe in you and are willing to go out of their way to help in any way. And also those who have never doubted or held me back pursing what I love, as well as exploring fully my gifts that I've been b...

Hey Everyone, new Video up. Hope you were able to enjoy the Sunset / Moonrise tonight. And maybe even the chance for that Sunrise / Moonset mañana. 

Below is a few candid thoughts out there tonight. I like to speak from the heart and in one take. SO, yes it may be a little longer than the attention span of todays society. But if you make it through, I hope you get some nuggets.

A quick preview on why I choose to regularly incorporate roller skis into my routine, what nearly 30 muscles the core actually involves, and why it's great to get out and start the day on a positive note. 

leave questions or comments below so I can reach out and provide more info and content. Thanks for watching.

I’ve always listened to my intuition when I felt needed guidance. I recall it when I dropped out of pharmacy school, moved to Minneapolis, and chose chiropractic school months later. Then, I chose to pursue cycling, also moving to Arizona, opening my own practice, along a few more decisions that were life changing.  Each of the

m, I felt I was deeply in tune with moving in the right direction that I should be for growth and connection.

Right now, I am in the middle of moving. I’ve of course had to move over the years, and it definitely isn’t fun. It’s not our typical routine and takes a lot of energy. This last move, I was particularly stoked and excited for it, and was looking forward to what was to come of it. This time however, I just didn’t think I’d be in this place, and it’s pretty heavy. That said, getting things sorted is a chance to get rid of things you no longer use or need, and to keep things close that matter. Also, to revisit what got you here.

This accompanying photo was ta...

Some post training, oxygen deprived candid thoughts. I'll look to share some insight on choices I make, and why. From both a competitor standpoint as well as a health care peovider. I'll try to help serve Jose interested so that you can make a better educated choice, as well as see how it could apply in your life. 🙏🏽

Massive month in my life. I will never forget this. I think the quote from Don Miguel Ruiz is perfect here:

"A moment of clarity without any action is just a thought that passes in the wind. But a moment of clarity that is followed by an action becomes a pivotal moment in our life" 

enjoy the photos, and thanks for following along on my journey.

I still do ride. Though, certainly not at the level I had attained over the years, or at the level I was at a month or so ago. You see, I had taken a little break after the one day races of Nationals, Winston-Salem, and Philly. If you’ve read my post about coming into those hot, I was ready to race and win. If not win, be a factor in them, and I believe that was the case. As you’ll see in the TrainingPeaks screenshot, it’s like I fell of the face of the earth in regards to fitness. Why? Well, you’ll see a steady progression of upward trend, building, building, building. When I am home here, i have a real good sense of what it takes to break down and build up to that stimulus. Plus, with me having the education and background I do, I do a lot of things that are available to me ( and everyone else ), that are often left off the table as a benefit for recovery. That’s what this site is for, is to plant seeds and educate on what and how things can be implemented in your life to make the mo...
