My shoes.


When I meet someone new or am trying to explain what I do for a living, ultimately I hear what I am saying and it sounds ridiculous. It sounds immediately great and impossible and I’m reminded that I’m lucky and I’m an idiot. At least everything I do is connected to one voice. 

While there may be a lot of people who’d rather me just shut up, there’s a second group that thinks the opposite. That I’m not doing enough to share my story or self promote. It’s a constant battle of branding vs. douchebaggery with no big winners. 

I can be proud though of all I have done under one voice. When it’s all said and done I won’t go down as the guy who said it couldn’t happen here. Despite how it feels sometimes. 

If you can hear it, my voice says “you can do it.”  It says that living healthy is possible anywhere and that when people say you can’t. You just keep on until you do. 

Today I’m riding a bike around delivering salads. I ran into a guy in an elevator who asked how much mileage I’d get in today and then remarked “I sure as hell wish I was in your shoes.”

Damn right you do sir. Damn right.
