Adventure is out there

Pixar Pier sign at Disneyland
Jody Maberry had not been to Pixar Pier until last night.

Adventure is out there.

Indeed it is.

In a busy world, we can become incredibly inactive and have poor stamina (cardio, endurance).

We don’t notice how ineffective we’ve become because it happened so insidiously. Plus, most of the people we see everyday are in the same inactive, low-stamina place.

This is not good for our spirit.

What if you began on your knees?

You are in charge of inspiring yourself to deliver on your highest priorities.

What if you began on your knees?

What?

Each morning, what if you got down on your knees and said a prayer or two.

Assuming you have knees (not everyone does).

Assuming you have a working knowledge of gratitude and blessings.

Tell me why you don’t have 30-60 seconds to do this before you get dressed.

The Other Side

Pre was a rebel

A classic “To whom it may concern” letter…
Thank you Lauren Fleshman, for being a rebel.

Steve Prefontaine, Pre, was a rebel.

Pre was also an Oregon runner.

Pre held American running records. He held the 1972 Munich Olympics 5,000 meters race lead three times, including the final backstretch. He finished fourth in what was his gutsiest race ever.

Lasse Viren, who won the 10,000 in Olympic and World-Record time, out-kicked Pre.

Viren went on to win double Olympic Gold again in the 1976 Montreal Olympics in the 5k and 10k.

The other side of comfort, predictability, and conformity is non-conformity.

Steve Prefontaine not only inspired people with his assertive running style, Pre inspired others with his thinking.

He did not like doing things the way others recommended, particularly his coach Bill Bowerman.

Bowerman co-founded Nike with Phil Knight.

Bowerman was the 1972 Team USA Olympic Track & Field team head coach.

Bowerman was Pre’s coach.

Bowerman tried to break Pre from being a front runner.

Pre may have won the Olympic 5000 gold if he ran his own race. We will never know because Pre took Coach Bowerman’s advice and stayed with the pack.

The pack boxed Pre in and he was unable to break free.

Pre is not at his best when boxed in.

None of us are.

Hayward Field Episode Three – Strength

The Track & Field faithful and devoted fans will fill every seat. The World’s Track & Field Mecca.

Hayward Field Episode Three – Strength:

Ran out of time to prepare the agenda for strength.

Will need to revisit as soon as possible.

A key reason our spirit is critical is to handle setbacks just like this one.

Do the best you can then forgive yourself and move on.

It’s that simple, and potentially that challenging.
