A Super Cool and Successful Motivational Speaking Event!

July 16, 2018

Last week, I had the pleasure of giving a motivational talk at Birmingham Next, a nonprofit community center in Birmingham, Michigan, down the street from the high school I graduated from. It was a packed house!

July 12, 2018

So many stairs!

That’s me on Tuesday, in front of a huge stairway at the Phoenix Center in Pontiac, Michigan. I grew up about 20 minutes away from here, but had never been here before. It’s a pretty neat facility… but most of it is closed to the public. Read the rest of this entry »

Say hello to my dragon buddy!

I met him while vacationing in St. Joseph, Michigan. We watched July 4th fireworks from the bluff, spent lots of time at the beach, and had lots of quality family time. I also biked a lot. Over seven hours, split between six different workouts! Read the rest of this entry »

So Many Colorful Meals From One Farmers Market Outing

July 2, 2018

Check this out: Purple string beans!

Oh man, I love oddly-colored vegetables, so when I saw these at the farmer’s market, I was all in. I bought some purple ones, along with regular ol’ green beans and yellow beans, and steamed them for a meal last week.

And then tragedy struck. Read the rest of this entry »
