I am sure you are aware of genetically modified organisms (GMO's) that are in our food supply now because the crops last longer and the food producers can make more money. The bad part for our health is that our bodies don't recognize these genetically modified seeds and they are not good for our health. For example, many people are now intolerant to gluten because of the genetically modified wheat seed that has much more gluten in it than the one God designed.
Labor Day, the holiday that indicates summer's over is just around the corner. Where has the time gone? Seems like were we just looking forward to the Memorial Holiday and about to kick off summer. The older I get the more I realize time is precious and fleeting. Fact is I feel as though I should be working right now.

My motivation to run the Boston Marathon stemmed from my daughter Momo’s journey with childhood cancer that began when she was two and a half years old. Running a marathon is the most symbolic way for me to represent her battle and courage.
So I was thinking about the way we train. I think the biggest problem with the way most people train is that they do what they like, but don't do much of the things they don't. For instance, if you love to jog, but hate strength training, generally we jog much more than train with weights! The same thing happens the other way around as well.
