I fill the unforgiving minute

with sixty seconds worth of distance run

I'm a CrossFit trainer; I run CrossFit Litchfield Park with my wife, Natasha. I update my workout log pretty often. My favorite metrics include 400 meter runs, deadlifts, overhead squats, kettlebell snatches, front squats, shoulder presses, pullups, Clean & Jerk, and CrossFit workouts like Grace and Nancy.

I love CrossFit because it enables me to give the most direct and efficient improvement to people's lives. The improvement is not a matter of subjective opinion: it is experienced on all levels of a person's being and experience, affecting who they are and everything they do.

And the shock and sweat are good.

But I have promises to keep...
