Athlete On Fire (general)

We have the chance to speak with an organizer of the first ever Kokoda Trail race. A three day stage event that covers the Kokoda Track, a World War 2 historical trail that the Australians used to hold off the Japanese.  The history and the athletes that took on the challenge made this a pretty unique event!

We all justify why we can't or won't do something we really want.  Like making more money, winning losing weight, getting faster.  It doesn't matter.  When we tell the world we want something but tell ourselves something else, it's time for a little tough love.  We hope this helps you out of some of your default excuses!

A running set that you only need a cheap watch to complete.  And no fitness. And ideally no other thoughts but push a little harder this time.


A bodyweight workout completely by feel for 10, 20, or 30 minutes.  You finish by grading with one number instead of hundreds of reps.
