CrossFit is a comprehensive health-and-fitness program designed for universal scalability; meaning so long as you're committed, you can get started regardless of experience level. Rather than change programs, we change our loads and intensity to meet the demands of everyone from the elderly to champion cage fighters.

CrossFit focuses on all ten elements of optimal physical fitness:

1) Cardio/Respiratory Endurance
2) Stamina
3) Strength
4) Flexibility
5) Power
6) Speed
7) Coordination
8) Agility
9) Balance
10) Accuracy
These pictures were taken on my 15 mile run today up the Mt. Wilson trail. The wildflowers were out in full force. It was warm and foggy at the start but once I got to Manzanita ridge it was sunny on top.
Andy and I are going to Disneyland Saturday, I'm super excited.
Now is a time of commitment. Decide upon your direction or goal and begin the journey towards it. Take time to recognise the patterns that have sabotaged you in the past and eliminate them from your future. Change must take place in the inner you before change can take place in the real world. Let balance be your watchword and if you need help then it will appear.

PS.
we are going to the PCT trailfest this weekend in Sac.We are gathering so much info for our hike in 20101.I know its far but we will be doing shorter backpacking on the PCT before then to get ready.

In 2010 we are only doing 2 months with Moprgans bro and such. Its the time we can be away from work.
we want to do the whole thing the year after or 2 yrs after..but that depnds on where are working and taking 4.5 months off for it..either way we are stoked about doing 2 months non the less. This year we are going to do tahoe sections adn yosimite..if you are around we should do a weekend or so , and get some tips and such from you :).

My uncle is on of the trail angels in oregon. Lance Davis :) he leaves stuff for hikers and notepads.

I am trying not to be a slave to my compulsion to eat

if there is not a thought in my head
I think... what could i eat?

if I am not doing anything I think... I COULD EAT!

I eat like smokers smoke

but i am trying to be the master of my destiny rather than a slave to my compulsion
