This journey has taken me many places. Uphill and down. Fast and slow. Happy and sad. Nothing would have prepared me for where I am now. Since this journey began almost 2 years ago the questions, the advice, and the sharing began. Everyone wanted to know why and how and could they. 

Brianne and I have been drinking Shakeology for a year. We kick our own butts at home with the likes of Shaun T., Chalene Johnson and Tony Horton. And just 5 months ago I became a Team Beachbody Coach. With the tools of Beachbody and the results that I can see and the world can see, I get to share this with as many people as possible. I love it. I am half way through my first 30-day Challenge and I am amazed at the results and the participation of my challengers. 

There is more. As a Team Beachbody Coach I get to build my team of like minded hard working individuals who are also interested in not only changing their life but helping others change theirs. My long time friend, and the first Coach on my team, Taylor, came to me 2 weeks ago and asked if I thought she could run. See as ambulance dispatchers we used to dispatch large scale events, mostly marathons that ran across the city of San Francisco. For years we sat at the finish line, in the cold, wondering what it was that would make people run like that. 1 year ago Taylor was dispatching when I crossed the finish line of my second half marathon. Two weeks ago she came to me, as a Beachbody Coach, a friend, and a success story in progress. She has decided that instead of either of us being at the finish line she wants to cross it with me. July 27, 2014 we will run the San Francisco Marathon (well half 13.1 miles). Right now we train. I am training someone to run a marathon....ME! Its the best feeling in the world.
