Ran a 5k with the family tonight. 5k “Tunnels to Towers” to honor military and first responders of 9/11. We did really well and Erik really killed it tonight.
there is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself.
Prepping the kit for “The Challenge.” Step one is to learn to carry this without dying.

Beautiful morning for a run on the Palmetto Trail. However, these Mosquitos are hardcore vampires…
Very true… Trying hard to remember that rest is as important as work.
Running a 12k up Paris Mountain in the morning. The new painting in @SOCOWork sums up how I’ll be mentally preparing for it…
I have been struggling lately. I have been working hard to improve myself personally both physically and mentally. Working to get stronger, faster, to have better control. Working to be more focused, calm and disciplined. I’ve made some real gains in the past but lately things feel stalled. I feel like I’m deep in the grind. Things have definitely plateaued.

I had a discussion with a friend of mine recently about what it really means to successfully lead a team to complete a project and kick some ass on it. We were talking about how we both hear quite a bit from people who talk about their managers or bosses always second guessing the things they do or not being there when something goes wrong in the first place. We even got a question submission to the BizCraft show talking about this same thing. Because of this the idea of leadership and specifically “am I a good leader” has been weighing on my mind.

Sinatra had a very nice blog theme. Very clean.
I love Sinatra.
Went to Concord NC and ran in the Spartan Sprint with some buddies. It was a most epic day.
The race was supposed to be a 5k but ended up being 5 miles… big difference from 3.5 miles to 5! But we made it and while I was disappointed in certain aspects of my abilities I was most proud to find myself getting stronger as the race wore on. I felt as if I was building power instead of losing it.
Today is March 7th. John P. Phillips my friend (we all called him John Paul) was injured gravely in Iraq 8 years ago today. He later died from those wounds on August 16h, just 5 months later. He was an honorable man, a good friend and a US Marine.
