This Half Marathon ain't gonna row itself! From left to right: my pre-workout 'Boost.' It increases my bodies core temp using a type of East Indian cactus. Center: my daily 'XFactor' Multivitamin. Gives me natural energy through my day, including vitamin C, using Aloe as a binding agent. Right: 'ProBio5,' using only 5 strains. It's freeze dried, giving it a time delay to go out from deeper in your digestive track. I sleep like a baby. Interested in trying any or all?

Such a productive evening. He's been perched here for an hour.
When you vacuum cleaner turns into a light switch. NY apartments never cease to entertain and surprise.
That face you make after you sign up for a Half Marathon of rowing after taking an oath to never again do a Half Marathon of rowing...
The loves of my life. My reasons. My why. ❤💛💙💜💚☀🌙✨
So. This is what I woke up to this morning. And now I'm in tears. Yes, that's Rocket as my sidekick. And the 'V' stands for vigilante. I don't deserve these angels. But thank God I found them and they chose me. ❤☀🐶
Today, I didn't feel like working out. Had an insane commute to work, lost some possessions to boot (nothing that can't be replaced) and I let those circumstances chew on me for way too long. And you know what? That's on ME, whether I like it or not. Life happens. It's never personal, even when it feels like it. I get to choose what to do with it. I can carry it around, let it chop away at me, block my light, and have it leave a stain on everyone I come into contact with, OR I can drop it and move forward. I felt my body fighting my resolve. I felt my chest tighten, my eye brows furrow, and my breathing get shallow. The right side of my jaw started to hurt. I got lightheaded. Then I took some deep, long breaths to center myself, and decided that after work, I'd hit the weights and get some endorphins going, even though my brain was trying to shut it all down. It was a choice. And it's always ON ME how I choose to react. Today I said yes, even though I did t feel like it. I moved through my frustration. I gave a smile and a helpful hand and voice to those who needed it. I made an impression. I was impactful. In some cases, I saved people's days and solved their problems. I faked it til I made it. It's a choice away. The only way out is to move through it. Deny nothing. Embrace everything. Even the feelings we're often taught to suppress or "deal with" or "give to God." That change, that freedom, is a choice away.
Snow Daaaaay! Thank you to all of the athletes who braved the weather to torch some calories with us at @rowhousenyc! 🙌💪🏻
Get it, mama. ❤💪🏻
That one time I was 10 feet away from Mama Monster. This was the 2nd time I'd seen her live. What a gift and an unwavering inspiration. ❤
Live Irish music at the pub next door! This is my kind of pre-Super Bowl. 💚🍀
Rocket and Megan doing box jumps in the park. Happy Friday! ❤🐶💪🏻
When you're home sick, but you still get dressed for work to feel like you're contributing. Yeah I'm not very good at being sick. But I respect the bodies ability to let you know to sloooooow down. January was beyond amazing, with goals reached and challenges bested. Time to rest and reset. Thankful for my team at home and at @rowhousenyc for carrying me through. ❤💪🏻🙌
Pretty gosh darned excited and blessed to be back at AMAW. I love this studio and the incredible wisdom they share so freely and willingly. Lots of work to do!
Finishing out January with an EVF 360 circuit at @evfperformance! Warmed up with a 2k meter row (7:33 PR!), followed by some KB Swings, DB presses, Wall Balls, Knees to Chest lifts, Ski Rows, KB snatches, some 45 sec planks, and another 1k row to cash out! Finished the month over my 120,000 meter goal, and I have Boost to thank for that, a pre-workout supplement I take to jump start my program. What goals are you driving towards this next month? A few less pounds? Better sleep? Less sugar and caffeine? A healthier, natural kind of energy? Healthier intestines? Life is hard, and Plexus supplements can help. Message me here, comment below, or email me at email@example.com! Lets chat about your goals, no matter how big are small they may seem. Now more than ever, we need to be good to our bodies and be the absolute best we can be in all areas of lives. Let's crush February together!
Gotta retire some jeans I've had for a looooong time. They just couldn't contain it any longer. But what can, I ask you? WHAT CAN?!
This is what 100,000 meters in 27 days looked like. Grateful for @rowhousenyc for bringing me this far, and to @plexusworldwide for the best supplements a growing boy could ask for. 20,000 more meters for my own personal goal, 4 days to get them.
