click on pic for another ilg CHI HIT from footage by Bill Galen of ilg suffering during a 1k uphill sprint interval at 10,300′ during the filming of my FLIGHT WITHOUT WINGS; Sport Snowshoe DVD. which remains the only Sport Snowshoe DVD on the planet…although no one seems interested in distributing it for me! so, things remain the same as they have for the past quarter century: let all the others talk about “cross training” and being “cross fit” and “yoga”…yet, fact remains; Wholistic Fitness is the Mt. Everest of Personal Training due to Owner Expertise; compare my athletic resume with any other Personal Trainer or yoga teacher and that, my Noble Friend, is what makes all the UNION of YOGA!

“Whatever you do, don’t shut off your pain; accept your pain and remain vulnerable. However desperate you become, accept your pain as it is, because it is in fact trying to hand you a priceless gift: the chance of discovering, through spiritual practice, what lies behind sorrow.”
– Sogyal Rinpoche



I pray this e finds your family well.

I humbly request your permission to use your term ‘Silent Sport’ in each of my articles,
booklets, books, educational material, web sites, speaking gigs, consulting business,
endurance events…in reference to Sport Snowshoeing and SandShoeing w/ proper attribution.

Meditation during my extended downtime has unleashed diverse opportunities
from within to promote our sport, sustainable living measures, environmental and
animal stewardship, and the benefits of mindful living. I will forever refer to
the fierce yet soft Wholistic Fitness lifestyle principles and your work as the fitness
guy w/ the USSSA.

I have big plans to come full circle w/ the foregoing through my work. There are several
projects and thoughts I would like to discuss w/ you in the coming months. I remain steadfast
in my effort to purchase Snowshoe Magazine. Ryan Alford and I expect to meet next month
to discuss several topics.

I expect to be mobile enough to commence my resurrection via your Divinity in mid-October.

In the artistry of sand-and-snowshoeing….
Be well.
