My Family

As I turned down the kindness and help of... everyone, at a time when I knew I really needed it, one specific moment made me realize that I have a problem...

Scared as hell, this man showed up to do the Tough Mudder with our team without the use of his legs. But there's more to the story. He's also my kid's stepdad.

I didn't get a blog post written today because I became absorbed in this text conversation which hilariously got a little bit out of control...

I'm in a feisty mood, today. Hahaha. There's this guy. Or maybe a girl. I don't know. All I know is that he/she is a friendship WRECKER! And it's payback time.

Just saw this on Facebook, posted by my sister... Ummm... Yeah. Creepy.

My nephew Grant is one of my favorite people in the world. Their family made this video about his dwarfism (and his heart). My heart... Melted. Please watch.

In a state of defeat and discouragement for how Tough Mudder ended for me, this is what my girlfriend did to help me put things into major perspective...

I don't know much of what happened at Tough Mudder after I finally just... lost it. My mind went. My body went. And I lost it. Here's the end of that story...

Things really started spiraling out of control after those first few miles. And I started making more mistakes which would put me in a dangerous situation...

Hyperventilation, shock, dangerous electrolyte imbalance, and hypothermia. I flew to England expecting my next Tough Mudder to end SO much differently...

It was supposed to be a super low-key night. Then I came to, my face pressed on the floor next to a public toilet, staring into the eyes of my panicked friends.

I decided to write out a narrative a couple weeks ago as if the Ghost of Christmas Past had visited me. This is what came out. And it has been powerful for me.
