The World’s Instrument of Peace is Sport

The World’s Instrument of Peace is Sport Tagged with:

In my 20 plus years of wheelchair sport, the most enjoyable experiences have been traveling to various countries to compete against other countries.  Over my various travels I have had to honor of competing against some of the most competitive athletes I n the world. But I also have met some of the friendliest people. Many of which I still keep in touch with today.  I am not sure which is my favorite country, but what I enjoyed the most while overseas was knowing that I might not have spoken the same language or had similar faiths, but we certainly had one thing in common  was the love of sport.

Exercise? It's all attitude and a calendar Tagged with:

With the beginning of the fall season, a change in schedule always precipitates. I have now established a change in exercises, days to exercise, diet, and even rest days during the fall. Over the last three years, I have grown accustomed to having a calendar that lists my daily schedule and activities. When this happens I feel like I have switched gears from summer fun activities to hard core structure I basically have my fall season planned out for each day. This is great for me considering I just spent the summer free lancing it. I can then focus on just bringing a fun-filled attitude for when it’s time to exercise.
