By 11:40am the sky had turned dark and I felt the first drop of rain on my head. Contrary to the weather report, my instincts told me to turn around and get lower, so I headed back to the lake where I thought I’d wait it out for a while. When the first thunder came, it was close and powerful, followed by more of the same. Now my instincts told me to run, so I did. As I did, nickel-size hail rained down in almost biblical fashion.
Hi, I’m Bryan.
Some people have a midlife crisis when they get to be my age. I had a personal renaissance.
I got scared straight after a TIA (a small stroke), so I got fit. I even got CrossFit. And I rediscovered the power of adventure; something we all know as kids, but tend to lose when we grow up.
Without realizing it at the time, I found that my fitness gains spilled over into other areas of my life. My emotional resilience went up, my relationships improved, I had more confidence in my career, and I had a clearer sense of why the Almighty put me on Planet Earth.
You’ll also find information about PIVOT Fitness Accountability Groups; a passion project of mine. If you are working on getting more fit in midlife, joining a PIVOT Group might just be the missing piece you’ve been looking for.
Midlife is not the time to hunker down in your comfort zone and coast effortlessly into the grave. If you want it to be, I can be the most impactful, joy-filled season of your life. Are you up for the adventure?
