Performance

  • InsideTracker
    • They’ve improved, enhanced, and helped me manage my diet, activity, and energy levels over the years. I love getting my updated metabolic data.
  • Rogue Running
    • Coach Chris McClung and the rest of the team, under the amazing tutelage of Steve Sisson, have helped me pull almost two minutes per mile out of every distance from 5k to marathon. They have created a community that creates winners. I’m still Boston bound!
  • Pedal Hard

Statistics

  • MyFitnessPal
    • I used this to count calories for my first 90 or so days of serious weight loss. By that point, I knew how many calories key ingredients had, and I had a pattern that was working. I still weigh-in a few days a week, and I now have 7 years of historical data, and counting. Join me!
  • Strava
    • I syndicate my Garmin data over to Strava for fun. You can join me there, too, if you prefer it to Garmin.
  • Athlinks
    • The majority of my adult athletic record is here. Let’s compete!

Recovery

  • Overuse (with insufficient recovery) and poor posture are the primary cause of most of my athletic injuries, aside from stepping in holes or tripping in the dark. Everything is manageable with commitment, focus, and good physical therapy!
  • Kiplimo Chemirmir is the world’s best massage therapist for runners!
  • I recommend 12-step to anyone who’s ready for new results. The only requirement for membership is the desire to stop… AA. OA.

Banking and Debt

  • Get a Kasasa checking and savings account, if you can. Way better rates and benefits than your big bank is giving you.
  • If you must borrow, get a car loan at your local credit union. Way better rates than your big bank is giving you.
  • Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (Debt Management)
    • If no-one ever loved you enough to tell you to stay out of debt, Dave can help.

Investing

More Social Media

  • Google+
    • I know some people use it, and there’s some good stuff here. I have an account here where I syndicate my blog posts.
  • Instagram
    • I’m learning to add more photos here before anywhere else. This is my favorite photo site, though most of my friends are on Facebook, linked below.
