Myth-busting: The nutritional facts behind the hype

"We think sometimes that poverty is being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty."

The Power of Plants

Among the survivors of the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6th, 1945, were six gingko trees. The power and strength of plants is a fascinating subject especially in a society where we don’t go out of our way to eat them. I think the fact that these trees survived the A-bomb is a true testament of the benefits of a plant-based diet.

People don’t see why a man runs. They don’t see any sport in it, argue that it lacks the sight & thrill of body contact. Yet, the conflict is there, more raw & challenging than any man vs. man competition. In running, it is man against himself, the cruelest of opponents. The other runners are not the real enemies. His adversary lies within him, in his ability, with his brain & heart to control & master himself & his emotions.

Fall Festival 5K

I ran XC during my freshman & sophomore year of high school. I hated it, I’m surprised I even ran for as long as I did- I never practiced during the summer b/c I would think to myself, “What’s the point, I’ve got 3 months of 3+ mile/day workouts ahead of me so why should I start now?” Not the best logic but at 14 & 15 years of age, it made sense in my mind. My PR during my sophomore year was 27 minutes for 5K.

Today I ran 25:50 for 3.2 miles- an average of 8:04/mile. Technically, that’s a PR :-) Not too shabby considering the fact that I haven’t been training to the degree that I did when I ran high school XC. Not too bad considering the fact that I’m going on 5 years since I ended my track career during my junior year of college.

Thank you, University of Arizona Track & Field.  Thank you high school XC. Yes, I will always be a sprinter at heart and by no means have I ever been a vested distance runner…but it’s been great to see the progress I’ve made as a runner over the past decade.

As it had happened, I was invited to a revolution. People are not always offered invitations to revolutions.
