Race Report:  2011 Imogene Pass – A Perfect Storm of Wholeness

…to race as hard as you are able across this sparse, high terrain makes you stumble and each step seems to take twice as long as the one before it…and three times as long as all the steps you’ve taken in training to Be Here Now..yet, here you are now…and the drizzle of barometrically-challenged oxygen that you are able to eat disappears as fast as sage smoke in a sweat lodge…there is not – i promise thee – an unaching bone in your body nor does there remain an enthusiastic fiber for more punishment left in the deepest chambers of your will and you feel the little campfire of tapas within you dwindling as fast as evening sunlight in September…

The desperate situation of the planet is slowly waking people up to the necessity for transformation on a global scale.

yoga mala

Another priceless m(om)ent from my Early Morning Practice this morning…before heading out into a 2 hour+ mountain trot among the summer splendor of Durango…the juxtaposition of softness (yoga/meditation/pranayama) with concussion (mountain running) is a sweet/sweat dance which has ignited my inner life for well over 35 years; it’s what Wholistic Fitness™ is all about. Indeed, if personal training methods were given an Animal Totem, surely WF’s would be my nickname; The Chameleon…for we can dance among various sports/disciplines like nobody!
