Talayna Fortunato – Recap of the 2013 Reebok Crossfit Games


“Trying to write a recap of the Games is like trying to summarize Moby Dick as a book about a big fish. So much can happen in a week. The biggest thing resonating with me this year after the experience is a relearned lesson that it’s not over til it’s over. You must keep fighting. If I had done that consistently the entire time this year like I did last year I think my middle events would’ve been better, and I didn’t know it at the time but even one place better would’ve made the 7 point difference towards being on the podium again, and I was 10 points from 2nd. Every second counts. Instead, I let my attitude waiver and lost my fire until the final day.”

From Mark’s Daily Apple : Paralysis by Overanalysis, Beer, and Liquid Coconut Oil

“For today’s edition of Dear Mark, we’ve got three questions to cover. First up is a question from a reader who feels paralyzed by too much health information. Whereas before the basics might have made sense to him, digging further into the literature and the blogs is only making it harder and harder to make the right choice, or any choice at all. I totally understand and can relate. Next, I discuss the possible negative health effects of beer. Is it just the gluten that’s a problem, or are there other issues as well? Finally, I explore liquid coconut oil, or coconut oil that’s been altered to remain liquid at any temperature. Is it safe? Is it Primal? Is it actually worth using? Find out the answers to all these questions in today’s Dear Mark”

“Your link to the Bulletproof coffee guy in your article about Primal Coffee lead me to his article about the downsides of raw kale. After I read that, now I’m worried about oxalates and goitrogens. More broadly, the more I read on sites like MDA and others, the less I feel like I know about how to live healthfully. Between Omega 3:6 ratios, calcium:magnesium ratios, mycotoxins in coffee and chocolate, and all the other “if you eat this, it should be paired with this otherwise you’re screwed”, it really is hard to know how to live.”
Any thoughts?
Thanks very much! Jason

” Iron and the Soul ” – By Henry Rollins


“I believe that the definition of definition is reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself.

Completely.

When I was young I had no sense of myself. All I was, was a product of all the fear and humiliation I suffered. Fear of my parents. The humiliation of teachers calling me “garbage can” and telling me I’d be mowing lawns for a living. And the very real terror of my fellow students. I was threatened and beaten up for the color of my skin and my size. I was skinny and clumsy, and when others would tease me I didn’t run home crying, wondering why. I knew all too well. I was there to be antagonized. In sports I was laughed at. A spaz. I was pretty good at boxing but only because the rage that filled my every waking moment made me wild and unpredictable. I fought with some strange fury. The other boys thought I was crazy.”
