People Now Have Tough Decisions; Strong People Choose Freedom and Their Health In The Face Of Restrictions

My parents' friend's daughter has tendered her resignation from teaching. She has 20 years in, so she'll get a pension, but I think she has to be 55 years old to get it. So she'll have to do without income for 2.5 years before collecting.

My brother from Denver is looking to come here for my father's 80th birthday, but is not buying an airline ticket for fear that they will mandate only [vx]ed people on airplanes. He faces the daunting task of driving here instead.

Everyone, including me, is faced with tough decisions in the face of draconian mandates at the national, state, and local levels.

But even in the face of these decisions, most I know will **not** take that frankenshot. I'm glad I'm surrounded by strong people who will learn to do without while giving a huge middle finger to the would-be dictators in charge.

We all know that true health is getting fit and having a good diet. A frankenshot needle, two Krispy Kreme doughnuts per day, being shut out of gyms, and being locked up inside isn't true health.

"Health" they're pushing.

TRUE Health!

If you're faced with a tough decision, don't give in. You'll hate yourself for it. Also, you're not alone. There are a lot more of us than the media is saying there is. We're in for a bumpy ride, but if we hold the line, we will win this.

True Health Involves A Bit Of Work To Build A Strong Body, Not A Doughnut and A Needle

Never take the easy road, that way lies oblivion.

Hard way: 1 hour of exercise and a good diet.
Easy way: 1 hour of TV and snake oil in a needle.

The real pandemic is the overall behavior of people who seem to think that they can take the easy way out all the time and think that they will benefit in the end. Unfortunately, we have a generation of people who have taken that easy road, have developed health complications and are a high risk of viruses, and think that the easy way out in taking a chemical injection will solve this problem.

It won't. You need to wake up now before it's too late.

Some good old fashioned work and health consciousness will defeat viruses. Plus, you'll look good, feel confident, perform daily tasks better, and have a good chance of living a long life. Even if you start in your 60s and 70s, you can, for a good number of you anyway, can reverse the effects of poor health.

1 hour of television, eating two free doughnuts each day, weighing 300 pounds, and waiting for a savior in a needle has never been a model for health. Don't expect the "easy way" to prolong your health and improve your performance and confidence.

Why I, A Simple Coach and Athlete, Was Drawn Into This Political Fight

I originally wanted to make a series of videos regarding the triathlon and ultrarunner lifestyle, how to train for these extraordinary events, how to excel or even finish in one, and generally how to turn your body into a fortress to ward off bugs and viruses.

Recent events have drawn me into the political sphere, where we are seeing a frightening expansion of government in the name of health, and I find myself at odds with the "healthcare" industry on what true #health is. I have been and still will explain in several different blogs and threads.

I noticed a good number of podcasters drawn into the political fight to, as we all know what the dire ramifications could be if we don't act. One podcaster's topic was originally men in relationships. Another one I subscribed to originally was to talk about guns, since she was knowledgeable in that topic. Both were drawn into the political fight as their topics, like mine, were related to what was going on.

I know a woman who, like many others, is facing a stark choice between the frankenjuice in her arm and her job. She sounded like she was going to relent. I told her not to, because the complying will never stop. Already this country is talking about b00sters. So even after she risks he life in taking the stab, she'll face the *same* problem in 6 months. Will she comply again, and again? What else will government demand from her.

It's better to face them down. I know termination of her job is on the line, but bodily autonomy is much more important than any job. She can always get another job. She cannot get another body.

I hope she does the right thing in a week, her deadline for the frankenshot. Hopefully my talk can sway her to do the right thing.

This is why I'm drawn into this fight. This ultimately has has an effect on everyone and since I know a lot about true health (and 12 years as a scientist), I can bring my knowledge into the ring.

Look for me to be a lot more outspoken in the future as the fight draws on.

A Fourth Frankenjab? Yep, This Is Real (Isreal)

A fourth one? I hate to say I told you so.

If you find this getting more and more absurd, I'm glad I'm not alone.

What you need to go to your friends and family around you who are supporting these GMO frankenshots and show them this article.

The odds are against you that you can still actually wake them up, but it's worth a try.

Horsie Medicine...And Who Is Really Informed

The media starts to mock Joe Rogan because he came down with the coof. "Oh look, he's criticized the "science juice" and now he came down with the coof." The media was immediately silenced when he posted a video all recovered and looking great. Why? Because he said he took the Imectn (you know what it is, I'll call it horsie medicine) and posted a negative test just 3 days after the positive test.

Some of the media also started foaming at the mouth and criticized him AGAIN for using a "dangerous drug not approved by the FDA for use with the coof."

The media tries to paint those who don't want the frankenshot as "uninformed and uneducated", but nothing can be further than the truth. We are very careful of what goes into our bodies, and are very critical of anyone who wants to put a foreign substance into it.

Big Pharma and government doesn't want to inform us, so we are perfectly capable of gathering the information ourselves, and this is especially important when it comes to our most prized possession, our bodies.

Again, I emphasize that true #health is to make sure we are very fit through diet and exercise. This virus is no exception, and there is a lot of evidence that it mostly goes after the old and the unhealthy. Turn your body into a fortress and you have a great chance to fend off this and any other virus (mu, xi, ligma? lol) that comes down the pike.

Compliance to Mandates is THE WORST Decision To Make!

When I was done with my swim workout today, I talked to another swimmer at the side of the pool about the mandate she is facing in order to keep her teaching job.

She says she is probably going to relent and get the "science juice." I told her that compliance is not going to be the end of this, especially when boosters and the new "mu variant" (yeah, this is actually true, incredulously) are in the news lately.

So if she complies, then what? In 6 months, she'll be forced to have to make the same decision again, get the booster or leave the job...and another booster, and another. And one every month, and then an experimental new and very risky drug, and then...

She'll be the one going through all sorts of hoops here to stick to her "normal" life. Those who bow out will find it tough initially, but would eventually found a way to live outside these restrictions.

And the more people that bow out, the easier it would be to push back against this craziness.

She nodded her head and agreed with me, but was it enough to sway her? I doubt it. I think some people need to experience more of this craziness before they finally had enough. Those are the people who will find it the hardest to leave (and will maybe become permanent slaves to the system).

It's better to stick to your convictions and take your lumps now than try to comply and find it impossible to life life as a free person later.

Hawaii Ironman Postponed Until February. How to Best Steer Clear of Cancellations and Postponements

First the #NJ #Marathon got cancelled.

Now the #Hawaii #Ironman. Well, it was postponed until February next year. 

I'll give you 3:1 odds that it will be cancelled on that date also, considering it's in the middle of winter, or the middle of "germ season" to more accurately put it.

I wasn't surprised at this at all. Officials there in Hawaii are of the authoritarian type, and I knew there was going to be issues with this race going off.

Now I know there will be people saying, "well, it's for overall health of the island." If that was the case the island would have been perpetually shut down up to this point because of the flu.

But, I'm not going to get into the politics of this; if they want to shut down, that's for the island's residents to decide. 

The goal here is to predict which races will happen, and which will not so that one can plan during these uncertain times.

The rules on this as far as I can tell is this...

Small races are more likely to be run than large races.

Races outside of cities are more likely to be run than big city races.

Races in red states will more likely to be run than blue states.

When Ironman Maryland cancelled last year, they fortunately gave me options to defer to Ironman races other than Ironman Maryland. The five races were Ironman Texas, Ironman Lake Placid, Ironman Maryland, Ironman Coeur D'Alene, and Ironman Chattanooga.

Going by the itinerary above, Ironman Maryland and Ironman Lake Placid were out. This left Texas, Chattanooga, and Coeur D'Alene. I decided on Coeur D'Alene because it was in one of the reddest states of the union and is in a small town as well.

Despite the 100 degree heat, the race happened, and I finished.

I've been reading some comments on the Ironman Maryland page. The race is supposed to happen next month, in September, and they are sweating bullets on whether this race is going to happen. The Ironman Hawaii cancellation spooked them even more.

Considering what has been going on with this virus thing recently, I don't think the race is going off as planned. I hope, for the sake of the athletes registered for the race, that it does, but there are some major headwinds that are blowing with this race.

I'm happy I made the right choice.


As for planning races, at this point choose the smaller, more rural races over races in the big cities. And take a look at their refund policies before registering. If they don't supply one, email the RD and get an official policy. If the refund policy is to your liking (maybe a full refund or a deferral to next year's race), then go ahead and register. Even if there is no refund or deferrals, if the race is cheap enough to enter and you're not going to get hurt if you lose money in case it cancels, then go ahead.

As for traveling for a race, this can also be done. Hotels and airlines know about the uncertainty and have instituted new policies that allows people to cancel out without penalty. This amazingly applies to airlines too. When planning my Coeur D'Alene trip, Delta's policy was that I can get a refund without any penalties, no questions asked. With my car rental and my hotels the same way, I could have cancelled the trip without costing me a cent! Just remember to read the fine print (and print it out) before making the purchase so you have everything covered.


This post is not in anyway to get you down. You can still plan your race season despite the restrictions. This blog is here to help you be more aware and more educated on your choices so that your season (and your wallet) doesn't suffer.

For advice on travel, and on races that might be more or less likely to cancel, drop me an email and I'll help you out on that front. I've been planning race trips for a long time and have adapted to the changes, even in the face of this tough spot we're going through.
