What got you started: In 2010, a friend saw an appealing ad from an upstart company called Tough Mudder. They use a slogan that played perfectly to our insanity: “The toughest event on the planet.” My friend had completed 4 Iron Man competitions in addition to doing the Alcatraz swim. He knew all about my military background and asked if I would do it with him. I became hooked immediately.
One of the most common running related injuries according to a number of publications, including Runner’s World Magazine, is plantar fasciitis. Zensah, the Miami-based compression brand, offers a product that can help remedy this constant pain.
Designed by a professional athletic trainer, the Zensah Ankle Support’s primary benefits include helping support the ankle, reduce swelling, and alleviate pain. The 3D, pin-point compression on the innovative sleeve also helps relieve plantar fasciitis. The lightweight design makes this ankle sleeve comfortable to sleep in, providing reprieve in the key hours that commonly affect those suffering from plantar fasciitis.

It is hard to admit that I am closer to 50 than I am to 40. I have always felt like I was especially young at heart. And I still do. My life began on the sunny shores of southern California in the cradle of the surf/skateboard culture. I was always into sports, team sports, of course, but my preference was always the more personal forms of expression. Surfing, skiing, mountain biking and skateboarding. And I was a sponsored amateur at the latter. Riding daily for many years, hopping in and out of empty swimming pools, jumping over things and being towed by speeding cars. These things seemed normal to me up until my 30s. Now I look back and I am so grateful I have health insurance! Priorities do change.
