This week (March 5-11th) is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness week. A lot of us may become “blind” to these awareness weeks or months because there are so many things that impact our health! Unless you know someone impacted by a disease, you may not pay attention to it. But I’m going to shout a little louder on this one so perhaps more people can hear it, as I have MS. I don’t like to think that I do, but I do. It’s there. Every day.
Watch this short video for a really good overview on how the body is affected. Scary stuff, really.
While it’s not slowing me down now, it could at any time. But I want to keep moving, and I want others to as well. I am personally invested in getting more money to research and programs to help those with MS live a better life.
Some of you may already have done a Bike MS event (formerly known as the MS 150.) If so, thank you, and please do another one! Check out http://bikems.org, http://walkms.org, http://finishms.org (<–you might even recognize the person in the wetsuit!) to see what events you can do in your area or just fundraise.
I’m personally trying to raise $6,000 through my Colorado Bike MS Team for the National MS Society, and our team goal is $50,000. That money will help drive the cutting edge research and patient support programs we need. I would like to ask you, would you be willing to donate $100 to help us get that next breakthrough in MS? Your support, even if we’ve never met, means the world to me. Thank you!
P.S. Join me in September in Bentonville, AR for the TriFest for MS supporting the Rampy MS Research Foundation. =>>There will be some coaching deals for anyone who races with me! <<=

Recovery Metrics for Endurance Athletes
It might be a good idea to consider some recovery metrics to better manage your training routine. Often we have the feeling that we need to hammer out every workout that’s on our plan. With work and family added into a busy training routine, we sometimes miss out on the recovery we need. Sometimes our fitness and training can be better served by taking it easier than might be planned. In order to reach our performance goals, we need to stay healthy and injury-free.… READ MORE
Routine Revised – Big Changes!
It’s now early March, and hopefully you are getting settled into your routines. I was getting settled into my new routine and was working steadily on my 2017 plans. And then BAM!!…an opportunity came along that I couldn’t turn down. But that opportunity put a bit of a wrench in my routine. What was the opportunity? I took a position with the National MS Society Colorado-Wyoming chapter working on Walk MS events… READ MORE
