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!

About 70 folks filled the room, and I hate to toot my own horn, but… wait, what am I talking about? Sometimes it’s great to toot my own horn! It was freakin’ awesome!

I Had An Awesome Stair Workout in Pontiac, Michigan… Until the Injury

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 »

Christmas In Michigan, Part One: I Ate Too Much Food

December 29, 2016

I’m back in California after a wonderful week celebrating Christmas in Michigan. Usually I’m good about eating well while traveling, but this time I ate too much. I also exercised like a maniac (more on that in my next post), so I’m not wallowing in guilt or regret. I enjoyed good food with friends and family, and I’m already back on track with my healthy habits.

A Full Final 24 Hours in Michigan

August 8, 2016
