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.

NJ Marathon Cancelled (No Surprise) - How To Plan Races Amid Uncertainty

The New Jersey #Marathon got cancelled yesterday. This was after it got postponed from its original date in April to October.

And those who registered will only get 60% of their entry fee back. Ouch.

I did predict that large races in the Northeast and on the coasts will be very iffy. An athlete client of mine was very grateful that I steered her out of doing this race. She's doing a smaller one in West Virginia instead, which is much more likely to happen.

In these uncertain times, there are ways to schedule your race season around all this uncertainty and do well. I was happy that, when Ironman Maryland cancelled last year, I was able to defer to Ironman Coeur D'Alene (Idaho, which is a red state). The race happened in June and I was successful in both planning and completing the race.

Even then, with every hotel and airfare purchase I made for the trip, I definitely reviewed their refund policies and made sure I minimized my losses in case I had to cancel the trip.

If you need some tips in scheduling your races, whether you're in the urban environment of New York, or in the Georgia countryside, we can help. This is on top of all that kickass training you need to get to the finish line of those planned races!

Staten Island Triathlon. We Actually Had A Race in NYC.

Pictures from the Staten Island Triathlon...we actually had a race in #NYC this morning!

The key to signing up for races in this area is that the races have to be small. This race probably had a total of 200 competitors.

Start of the Staten Island Triathlon.

Start of the Staten Island Duathlon

Some competitors on the bike portion

Staten Island Resident Chris Calimano coming in to the finish to with the Duathlon.

The weather was rainy for the morning, but it gradually cleared up. The roads were still slick, and I witnessed a woman slide on her bike and go down hard. She was able to continue with her race, but I positioned myself ahead of the turn afterwards to shout to the competitors to slow down for that turn. I'm glad nobody fell on that turn again.

As I mentioned before, it's preferential to sign up for smaller races in these parts. The large races, with all that is going on, can either be cancelled or the athletes made to go through Covid protocols in order to participate. Ironman Lake Placid and Ironman Maryland have such protocols, and I was lucky not to have chosen these races to defer to when Ironman Maryland was cancelled last year (did Ironman Coeur D'Alene instead).

So it was a good day for the athletes here, including a good group of friends I know who finished strong.


P.S. Go Farther Sports athlete Jess C. finished the USA Triathlon National Champs around 3:07. This was her first one. Congrats to her. If I can pull up some pictures of her from the race or even some live videos, I'll post them here. It's definitely worth it.

"No Frankenshot, no Partaking In "Clown World Society?" No Thanks, I'm Opting Out! A Message of Health to Young People

On my 5 mile run this morning, I was deep in thought about #NYC and their "mandate" to keep everyone out of bars and gyms who doesn't take their frankenshot.

Basically their end game is to exclude those who refuse their "medicine" from society.

Well let's take a look at society the past 5 years. Clown world. A society run by feelings instead of logic. And if you throw a logical question their way, they scream, throw a tantrum, and attempt to silence you. Want to still be a part of this?

Looking deeper, this society has no more "upward mobility." Back in the 1980s, when I entered the workforce, people busted their butt because there was a chance to get rich and be well off. Tuition was reasonable, house prices were a lot more affordable, and the dollar held value. Now? The dollar is being printed to oblivion, pricing the normal person out of things that would make him or her better off.

Do an internet search on "fractional reserve" and "central banks" and see how far down the rabbit hole you can go. End game is that the government can print unlimited amounts of money, give it to their cronies (Big Tech, Pharma, etc) and can price the normal person out of their possessions.

So, is contributing to this crazy society still worth risky "medicine" in the arm?

To you young people out there, I understand you already know it's bad. A lot of you are settling for video games. Yes, it's not worth the effort. You don't have to take a risky frankenshot to partake in this crumbling society.

But stand tall. When they finally kick you out of society, say, "thank you."

Young people, as well as other people in the know, will be called on to rebuild another society from the ashes of this one. Take care of yourselves by staying in shape (which I always stress and help out with as a personal trainer and coach) and divesting your savings out of the centralized currencies (dollar, euro, etc) and into tangible assets and decentralized currencies so that they cannot directly steal your hard-earned work.

And please don't be pressured to take "medicine" you don't want. This current Clown World society isn't worth the risk.

The Internet is a Double Edged Sword - I Will Be Showing How To Limit Your Wasteful Time And Wield It Productively

I have an inquiring mind. That can be awfully bad when it comes to my time on the internet. In order to quench the insatiable thirst for how things work, I can tend to be on the internet for a good long amount of time.

I was on it particularly hard last night, and last night, I think I was warned about it through my sleep.

I had a pretty vivid dream last. Woke me in a cold sweat. I was basically this small speck struggling to swim in an endless sea. This sea was very stormy, very restless, and I was struggling to keep my head above it. Things on this sea were pummeling me; I was listening to bits of songs from online commercials, snippets of news I recently read, and lots of other sound effects, even the old "you've got mail" sound bite. Finally, through the noise of the storm I can barely make out my voice through all the chaos and the noise.

"Help, you're losing me!"

That's when I woke up with a start.

I already know that the internet is double edged sword, its usefulness that can be eclipsed by other distracting things, like games and social media, that one can waste time in.

And I was losing myself in it. My constant search for more info about things can make it truly an addiction. And I was losing my inner voice, my soul, because of it.

I was on it a lot yesterday, and it wasn't productive. The dream told me that.

I needed to re-establish limits online again, just like I did so many times before. That is how I kept from losing myself from drowning in this chaotic sea of information.

If you find yourself online most of the time, you might want to take some notes from me in the future, as I set myself parameters to limit my internet use and keep it only for productive uses. My future videos will reflect this since mental health is part of our overall health that I promote.

Collective Health over Personal Responsibility? I Don't Think So

With the new #CDC "unmasking" guidance in effect for "vaccinated" people, there seems to be a slew of those fearful of taking off their masks lashing out about how those "antivax" people will exploit the rules.

I came across this "gem" about health and why it should be a collective effort instead of a personal responsibility.

Bzzt, Wrong!

Here's a snippet of The Verge article:

"With those limitations, pushing the burden of staying safe onto individuals makes things hard on everyone. In response to the CDC announcement, for example, stores like Walmart and Costco are no longer requiring customers to wear masks. Most say unvaccinated people still need to wear masks, but they’re not going to ask for evidence that someone is vaccinated before they go into the stores.

Someone who isn’t vaccinated could easily decide to not wear a mask in Walmart. In an indoor space like a crowded store, they’d be more at risk of contracting COVID-19, especially in an area where the virus is still circulating. That person is taking their health into their own hands — but they’re also putting the people around them at risk."

Okay, so let's go "collective." Let's ban fast food restaurants that put people's lives at risk to begin with. Heck, 8 out of 10 people who are hospitalized with Covid are overweight and obese, right? And what about all those people flocking to Krispy Kreme doughnuts after getting the jab? Krispy Kreme should be banned also.

How about we also make it mandatory for people to exercise 30 minutes each day? We have the wearable tech to supply the data now, right? That should drive my business through the roof and make me a millionaire.

These should eliminate that high risk group from dying from the virus.

Sounds draconian, right? How about we give personal responsibility a try again? Allow people good and bad choices again, but it is *on them* to face the consequences of those decisions.

In other words, if you feel you're at risk of dying from the virus, it's up to you to reverse your health through diet and exercise, not demand others do something against their will (#vaccines) to make you feel safe.

Although I would like a captive market and a chance of being a millionaire, I'd rather choose being in a free country instead. I'm sure you would also.

For the Greater Good, we should NOT Risk Healthy People with a Covid Needle!

I often hear people ask me, when I tell them I'm not accepting a #covid19 GMO frankenshot #vaccine, that I should do it for those around me.

No. The only way I can help those around me is to be healthy, period.

We need to keep healthy people healthy to keep society running, "for the greater good." That means NOT risking them with a Covid vaccine.

I've already seen what damage the lockdowns did to a lot of people, including me. The drop in business has seriously hindered my ability to help with my elderly parents. Healthy people productive & are the backbone of society; they're needed to keep everything running. They are assets, not liabilities, and should be treated as such.

The virus is 0.02% fatal to those in my age group. With healthy people, that figure drops even more. The #vaccines aren't necessary. Why put them into unnecessary risk with this shot?

On a personal note, my mother got Covid through a friend. I was around to take care of her for the two days she was sidelined. She would have found it a lot more difficult otherwise.

Leave healthy people alone!
