Do you ever question what you are really capable of? I do it a lot. I confidently tell the world about new challenges I am doing, but secretly in my mind I’m asking myself “Can I actually do that?” Up until today, I didn’t know if I could complete an IronMan 70.3 Triathlon, and now I…Details
A few people have asked me what I think of Lance Armstrong. When there’s that much money tied up in a public career story, it is hard to not let the money outweigh the truth. And the more often you repeat a lie to the public and to yourself; you can eventually start to believe…Details
I am not a scientist. The perfect proof of this fact is the way I just fixed my garage door. When winter cold hits California (less than 45 degrees), our garage door decides to stick. You hit the remote control, it raises 6 inches and then stops. You have to get out of your car,…Details

I’m going to burst if I don’t write this right now. If you’ve heard enough about the senseless tragedy in Newtown, CT, go ahead and change the channel. However, if you are wondering like me what you could possibly do to prevent another incident like this, please read on. I need your input at the…Details
