The Turntable – Part 2

Thanks so much for all of your great comments from “The Turntable, part 1!” I never realized how much interest a turntable story would stir up. Or how much a turntable can shape one’s life. I was facing a dilemma almost as soon as I bought my new turntable! You see, I wanted more vinyl and I […]

124 – Cleansing, Injuries, Weight Gain and Goals

This is the show where I help you live stronger, thinner, healthier, and happier. I am recording live from Breckenridge, CO today. I am outside today on the Burro Trail. It’s the same trail that Yoko and I ran the Breck Crest Half Marathon this past summer. I wasn’t sure if it would be possible […]
