Bidwell Obstacle Course Run

You might remember a post I did a while back asking for support for our fellow member Jerrad Fisher. Jerrad has been trying to get the city council to approve his obstacle course/run event in our very own Bidwell Park. On Tuesday, April 16th at 6pm the council will be revisiting this topic again. Jerrad is hoping that they accept his appeal and is able to move forward with this event. You...

What was once a simple training session had now become a serious discussion on life, and like most of life’s questions, we had no idea of the correct response… As if our blank stares weren’t enough to tell we didn’t have a clue how to respond, again, we were asked, “Are you a pig, or are you a...

Too many people complain about their lack of progress when...
