I am 99.9997% sure that the biggest obstacle in health and fitness, is us. Me, you, all our excuses, business, and procrastination. We all have it and it’s a daily fight. Then, something that seems to get in the way is thinking that staring at a bunch of fitness inspiration pics, and reading a bunch of fitness posts will somehow magically get you healthier and in better shape.

If there’s one sport that’s close to my heart, it’s stand up paddleboarding. It relaxes me, is soothing, is like taking an early morning walk on water, helped me get back in the water regularly after I moved away from Hawaii, is a great time to be quiet, and (finally) is just really peaceful. Unless it’s super windy. I love how it gets people on the water who are, or have been landlocked, gets people who are scared of the water somewhat in the water, and is something you can now do all over the globe. Iowa to Germany. Colorado to Moorea. Tahoe to Texas. (more…)
