No One Can Transform Alone

One of the main lessons that I learned early on in my journey of transformation is that I can not do it alone.

I normally don’t jump up in the morning excited to work out, but the first morning of Epic Weekend, I got out of bed and was ready to go early.  The day started with a hike up “A Mountain” or Tempe Butte (the official name) in Tempe, AZ.  This butte sits partially on the Arizona State University… Continue reading Epic Weekend: Part 2 – Wisdom and Seven Minutes of Burpees
