The 2nd Half of August 2015 Recap

Wayne Dyer was a huge inspiration for having a positive mindset.  Wayne was a runner and he related a lot of life to endurance sports!  If you get the chance, pick up a Wayne Dyer book or book on tape, it will “Change the way you look at things, and then the things you look at will change” 

Big props to Without Limits Coach Sami Winter and our athlete Jenny Perrottet at the 2015 Ironman 70.3 world championships in Austria!  If you look at the pics, you will see Austria was no joke!  The course was tough
