A New Year Means New Challenges

It's difficult for ex-athletes to stay in the gym sometimes, if for no other reason than you get used to preparing for events. My wife (who, like me, also works as a personal trainer) and I have never really left the gym, but this year we decided to challenge ourselves. So we signed up for this:

Looks insane, right? Well part of being a dreamer, which every writer and artist is, means continuing to challenge yourself. For us, that means six days a week of physical training until race day in August.

Add that to a schedule of two jobs, coaching two teams, writing two thousand words a day, website reconstruction, and STILL leaving enough time for me to rant about my teams' terrible play (Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors) makes this a particularly difficult challenge. But so far, so good.

Don't be afraid to challenge yourself this year. Remember, all you have to do to live the dream is put boots to it.
