  • InsideTracker
    • They’ve improved, enhanced, and helped me manage my diet, activity, and energy levels over the years. I love getting my latest 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


  • 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!



  • Overuse (with insufficient recovery) and poor posture are the cause of many athletic injuries. Everything is manageable with commitment, focus, and good physical therapy! These practitioners have been very helpful for me.
  • 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.

Financial Performance

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.


More Social Media

(in addition to the links at the bottom of the page)

  • Google+
    • 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.
  • Flicker
    • Here’s an account I’ve had forever, with more photos.

Hi, I’m Dylan Cornelius.
I was passed over for promotions four times in three years, every time passed over by a peer. My marriage was a wreck. I was obese and my doctor threatened to medicate me if I didn’t lose weight.
When I calculated the per-hour value of my overtime at work, the additional money in my bonus didn’t justify the costs to my health, relationships, and personal satisfaction.
After five years of hearing me complain, my brother told me to stop complaining or do something about it. I was stunned that it had been so long.
After a long and expensive search, I realized the quality of my relationships was poor and I wasn’t taking care of other people or myself.
When I committed to creating fantastic relationships and high-performing teams in every area of my life that mattered, my life transformed.
I was promoted. Now I’m picked to lead teams and frequently thanked for my contribution.
While my marriage didn’t survive, I met an amazing woman who trained me for my first two marathons, and now I do triathlons for fun. I lost 50 pounds and controlled my diet, allergies, and autoimmunity.
Now my “Honey Bunny” and I tour for weeks at a time on a tandem bike. Soon, we’ll cross countries and continents.
I created a Team Acceleration Blueprint based on my personal development journey and decades of education and experience building and leading teams at some of the best universities and companies on the planet.
I believe the world can work for everyone. It starts with clarity of purpose, fantastic relationships, and high-performing teams. I intend to help 10,000 people create an unfair advantage and achieve results they didn’t believe were possible too.
