Happy Healthy 2013! In 2012 I challenged myself in ways that I have never challenged myself before. I gave up bodybuilding for 2 months and starting running and training in an effort to encourage others to be fitter and to raise money for St Jude Children’s Hospital in the process. The Warrior Dash, was the ultimate win/win challenge, and my fans encouraged and supported me from the start. Although I knew you would be there to support me in this personal challenge, I was blown away by the response I got.

With your positive energy and donations, I was able to push hard enough to surpassed my own expectations as a St Jude fund raiser and I ran my first 5k. Last week, I learned that I was the top individual Warrior Dash, St Jude fundraiser for the year, and, I have been invited to run in the Australia Warrior Dash on February 9th, 2013. Can you believe it?!

I did not accomplish this alone. I had an amazing partner and support team of fellow warriors who did this with me. It was the people who followed me and urged me on that made the real difference to me and my extraordinary team of heroes. I had 17 awesome heroes join me in this fitness challenge to raise money for St Jude, and you became a part of my team too. Together we raised over $16,100.00 for St Jude and I thank you from the bottom of my beating, pounding heart. It was my hope that we could improve our team’s health and fitness, as well as help the kids of St Jude — and we did it! Congratulations to us all!

So here we are on January 1 st, 2013, where each day brings about new opportunities  for growth and positive change. My members and fans have been instrumental in my personal growth and I am grateful for all of the inspiration you provide me with year round. In return, my goal is to inspire you to NEW HEIGHTS in 2013. I want to bring you along with me in my quest to a fitter, healthier YOU. I want to see you harder and more pumped up than ever! <smile/wink>

And, yes I know that change can be hard, but it’s worth it when you are defining, and affecting the change in your life — SO STRAP ON YOUR NIKE’S! 2013 is here and the time for growth and change and fitness is now! I’m going to be recruiting an even bigger team of St Jude Warrior’s and I want you on it!

We have not yet determined our next race, but I will be letting you know when and where it is.
