Tackling the Big Sur International Marathon

Coworkers team up for fun & fitness

“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for 20 years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.” – John Bingham

Find adventure at Skydive Pismo Beach

In 21st century America, planes are a fairly normal aspect of the daily grind. Most adults would say they’ve flown, but Chris Lee, general manager of Skydive Pismo Beach, would disagree. To him, that would be like saying you went for a swim without ever leaving the boat. In order to fly, you’ve got to jump.

Becoming the All-Terrain Human

Kilian Jornet Burgada is the most dominating endurance athlete of his generation. In just eight years, Jornet has won more than 80 races, claimed some 16 titles and set at least a dozen speed records, many of them in distances that would require the rest of us to purchase an airplane ticket. He has run across entire landmasses­ (Corsica) and mountain ranges (the Pyrenees), nearly without pause. He regularly runs all day eating only wild berries and drinking only from streams. On summer mornings he will set off from his apartment door at the foot of Mont Blanc and run nearly two and a half vertical miles up to Europe’s roof — over cracked glaciers, past Gore-Tex’d climbers, into the thin air at 15,781 feet — and back home again in less than seven hours, a trip that mountaineers can spend days to complete.

The CrossFit Games

The search for the Fittest on the Planet

The purpose of any workout is to “increase your fitness”, yet only one workout program has actually defined “fitness”.  In CrossFit, fitness is “increased work capacity over broad times and modal domains”.  This sounds complicated but its actually very simple.  It basically means that you have the ability to do any task, for a variety of different times and at different weights.  Not that you are the best at the tasks, but that you are physically prepared to do anything, whether its life, career, or sport related.
