Your morning inspiration

As I've mentioned on more than one occasion, I am easily inspired. But if you've seen this, and are not inspired...we'll you're probably a zombie, or maybe a vampire.

Anyways, aside from that awesomeness, I appreciate every single one of you who has voted on which race I should do. If you haven't voted yet, what's the deal? Didn't you like choose your own adventure books when you were a kid? I know I did. And in a way you'll be choosing your own adventure, because as always I'll take you along with me for the ride... and the run... and the swim. Just not in that order.

Last night, I did my second day of my Couch to 5K. Because I started at week 3, it's not terribly intense, but it sure feels like it. It's a 25 minute workout, but only 9 minutes of it is spent running. Even so, I was beat by the end of yesterdays run. It was so darn hot and humid out, I was still sweating AFTER my post-run shower. Even so, 9 minutes of running shouldn't feel like it did yesterday. I'm definitely still recovering from Timberman. But I'm making my way through it. I run again tomorrow, and will try to get a short bike ride in tonight. Rach's parents are coming in tonight for most of the weekend, so I'll be squeezing things in where I can.


  1. Super video, Ben, thanks for sharing. How wonderful that Nick is willing to share his voice and outlook with people and especially children and teens. It was easy to see he definitely reached quite a few in the audience. What a wonderful attitude!

  2. Thanks for sharing that video Ben! It was very inspiring.

  3. Loved the video! And it is GOOD to be easily inspired. Makes for a more fulfilled life, IMHO.
