There are a lot of thankless jobs out there – and being the trash guy is certainly one of them. But this little guy loves seeing his crew from Waste Management every Monday and Thursday. Cason is almost 2-years-old, and stays with his Grandmother in Pearl, Mississippi during the day. This past summer, when the … Continue reading “Sweet Video: Toddler gives thanks to his trash guys”

We hooked up the Go Pro camera and hit the road… and this is what happened next… First up, Rebecca drives the Range Rover Velar: … Continue reading “A Good Things Road Trip”
I have a confession to make: I am incredibly competitive. Not sure when it was born inside of me, but I’ve always been competitive. I want to be first. I want to win! But the thing you have to learn on your going healthy journey is – your only competition is yourself. (As a recovering … Continue reading “OHS: The only competition is yourself”
If you’re going to have a big goal – like train for a half marathon – you’re going to need to do more than just “go run”. There’s a system that helps make that running easier – it builds your endurance and helps your muscles recover faster. Coach Jeremy laughs at me as if this … Continue reading “OHS: Cross-training is the key to your running success”
Did you feel that steaminess this morning? Shouldn’t it be fall? Why does it feel like August? Didn’t matter, we had a boot camp to get to and before the warmup was over, I was marinating in a pool of sweat. And it went downhill from there. But the good news is – all of … Continue reading “OHS: Working out in a sauna”
I started Paul Lacoste Sports’ Fit4Jackson/Fit4Medicine program two weeks ago, and the first week was TOUGH! Everything hurt – even though I had been running, I hadn’t been weight training. After two weeks (with a day or two off for traveling), I feel much better. Stronger. Ready to kick up my half-marathon training this weekend. … Continue reading “OHS: The scale finally cooperates!”

I don’t know if it’s getting older or just being stubborn, but my mind thinks I can do all sorts of things – but my body won’t always cooperate. Day two of Paul Lacoste Sports boot camp was a challenge, and I’m already feeling muscles that I haven’t checked in with for a while.
In 2015, I spent 6 months training with Paul Lacoste Sports and got into the best shape of my life. Now, as I train for a half marathon, Paul asked me to join the team and spend the next 8 weeks with the Fit4Medicine and Fit4Jackson groups that join the fall training. This is day … Continue reading “OHS: Fit 4 a new challenge (Dawn)”
Did you miss me? I’ve been quiet for the last few weeks as I went through physical therapy for my torn calf. It was incredibly frustrating, but worth the time to really allow my leg to heal. When I finally started running again, more frustration, as I was essentially starting over. Now, things are getting … Continue reading “OHS: The new challenge (Dawn)”

We got a little company this week during the boot camp at Millsaps College, and we were reminded of how we looked on week 1. (Although we’re pretty sure we looked way worse on week 1. Ryno even tossed his cookies twice that week.) In today’s video journal – Ryno promises to “take it all … Continue reading “OHS Day 35: Ryno pledges to take it all off”
