Documentary I am watching: 100 Meters
With my current aspirations of doing a triathlon, when one becomes available, I have been drawn to consuming more content around the subject. This documentary, that uses subtitles, on Netflix is fantastic! Funny, heartwarming and inspiring, 100 Meters tells the story of a middle aged father who is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. In an effort to use his body while he is still capable, he decides to attempt an Iron Man. Along the way his father-in-law, whom he despises, becomes his training coach. If you are looking for a reminder to “seize the day” then give this a watch!
Exercise equipment I am using: LED Safety Lights
Have you had trouble getting your exercise in during the middle of the day currently due to the heat? If so, have you moved your workouts to the early morning or in the evening? If you answered “yes” again, then you may want to make the $12 investment in a set of clip-on safety lights! These come with the option to have a sustained bright light or two different flashing versions. Recently, I clipped one on the back of my hat and one on my shoe in order to alert drivers ahead and behind me of my presence on the road. Get out and get your movement in while it is dark, but do it in a safe way!
Quote I am loving: “In a sea of people, my eyes will always search for you.”
Last week was my 15th wedding anniversary! My wife and I met at age 19 at UC Irvine. We have essentially grown up together. As you may imagine, we have both changed enormously since we first began spending time together. That being said, I am the last person to give anyone advice in regards to love. However, I believe that one of the things that has allowed our relationship to be successful is our ability to evolve together. We have seen many couples lose track of placing the relationship as a priority and instead of growing further connected, they have grown apart. If you are looking for a partner or are already in a committed relationship make sure to take deliberate time today to communicate how important the other person is to you.
Have a kick ass week everyone!
