This pic never gets old. It’s a great reminder of how important nutrition is. In Greg Glassman’s words, this is the hierarchy of a development of an athlete.
If you’re not dialing in your nutrition, you are not unlocking your potential. It’s like building a house that’s not on a concrete foundation. You can have the best materials, but how solid will the structure really be? It takes a lot of self discipline to eat right. I commend all of you nutrition challengers that are 20 days in to this new lifestyle change. Keep your nose on the grindstone and keep moving forward. The fruits of your labor are right around the corner. -WW
It’s not what you know; it’s what you use that makes a difference. -Zig Ziglar

September 8th: Tunnel to Tower Run in Corona. This 5k Run is a patriotic event acknowledging the sacrifices of firefighters, peace officers and our nation’s military service members in the name of Firefighter Stephen Siller who died saving others on 9/11.

*ATTN: BRING YOUR BACKUP SHOES & A STOPWATCH/PHONE. Labor Day is Monday, September 3rd. Special schedule for this day as follows – 7:30am & 9am
ROD: Here are a couple snacks to enjoy as hors d’ oeuvre or per-meal snacks
Pecan-Stuffed Figs -or- Bacon Wrapped Figs
8 fresh or dried figs
8 pecan halves – and/or – 8 slices of fully cooked uncured bacon
If using dried figs, place in bowl with 1 cup of water for thirty minutes to rehydrate.
Cut stems from figs and discard. Make a small slice across the top of each fig. Insert one pecan half into each. You can also wrap this in bacon and stick a toothpick thru the center to hold it altogether. Or, just wrap the fig with one slice of bacon. Either way these snacks are great. Enjoy!
