  1. Dumbo Double Dare Training - Week Seven

    SAN ANTONIO -- It wasn’t a restful night of recovery for LeBron James following his body’s betrayal on his sport’s biggest stage. James had over two bags of fluids pumped into his body after Game 1 of the NBA Finals, and that doesn’t count all the salt tablets and potassium pills and sports drinks and recovery concoctions that he consumed following the 110-95 loss. All that stuff had to go somewhere, so James was up all night walking back and forth from his hotel room’s bed to his hotel room’s bathroom. ...

    Perhaps unsurprisingly, considering the challenges of staffing Memorial Day Weekend’s 24-hour party, guest complaints against cast members jumped in the days following the event.

    “Pain is nothing compared to what it feels like to quit.” ~ Author unknown

    As a long-time runner, I’ve been fortunate. I can count on one hand the running-related injuries that I’ve dealt with over the years. The trailer hitch that took me out of running for a year when I smashed my knee ‘head on’ into it at full speed (note to self – don’t run in the dark).
