My primary goal when I started Mindful Runner was to create a movement that focused on helping people live long and healthy lives.
Like many before me a day came when I didn’t like the creature I saw in the mirror. Fifteen years of career and family focus had put 40 kg(88 lbs) onto my body. I had bags under my eyes, I couldn’t walk up a flight of stairs without having to stop to breath, I still considered myself an athletic person. I had been strong and active during high school and my years in the military. The final wake up call came when I tried to show my 8 year old son how to do a cartwheel on the sand. I flipped onto my hands on the beach and crashed onto my face, I thought my wrists had been broken.
So began a journey that continues to this day. Along the way I went from being unable to walk up a flight of stairs to running 100 mile races, surfing, paddling white water, rock climbing, meditating and pursuing a lifestyle of Mindful participation in my life and the world.
20 years on and my life is filled to the brim with being alive. I am fitter now than I have ever been , weighing 35 kg less than I did on that fateful day when I face planted in the sand. I am stronger, faster, more mobile than that tired used up 38 year old version of myself. Even better than my good health is that my life has real purpose now. I wake up every day excited for what lies ahead.
It took me a lot of trial and error, you don’t have to make the mistakes I did. Let me guide you through the process and give you the knowledge that it’s taken 20 years to gather.
