Proud To Be a NORML Athlete!

January 20th, 2018

If you’re a cannabis advocate, you know of NORML. For anyone who doesn’t, NORML is the National Organization For the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Their “mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to legalize the responsible use of marijuana by adults, and to serve as an advocate for consumers to assure they have access to high quality marijuana that is safe, convenient and affordable”.  Although NORML as a group is widely known, less people are aware of NORML Athletics. I’m going to change that, and you can help! I’m very excited to announce that both Heather and I are now official... Read More

It’s holiday season! That means a lot of you have been visiting family, and some still have family to visit! These family gatherings can be a great opportunity to talk to your family about cannabis.

Training High – Trail Running in the Mountains

December 9th, 2017

This is my first December on the Front Range of Colorado and I’m thinking someone forgot to tell the weather it’s winter. It has been fairly warm and I’ve taken the opportunity to get out into the mountains to begin training for my upcoming 2018 race schedule. We’re currently finalizing some of the races and in the beginning of the new year, we will be posting our full schedule on mjfitnut.com/events. Until then, I can say I will be committing to complete the entire 2018 La Sportiva Trail Running Series. Consisting of 7 total races spread out from May through September, it’s known as... Read More

The Cannabegrateful Yoga Challenge

November 25th, 2017

I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving. With it being a time when we all reflect on what we’re thankful for, it feels fitting to give some thanks of my own, and to share about my recent experience in The Cannabegrateful Yoga Challange. This Instagram challenge, hosted by Greenlove Denver and Canna_Sam, started on November 13th and lasted for 7 days. Each day there was a specific yoga pose, but the challenge was more than just taking a photo of your practice. The challenge also consisted of digging deeper to share something we were grateful for each day. The yoga pose line up: Day 1- seated... Read More

How 22 Pushups Could Save a Veteran’s Life

November 11th, 2017

It’s Veteran’s Day. This day, we as a nation, have set aside to honor our veterans for their service, their families for their sacrifices, and all those whose live’s have been touched by the tragic effects of war. Many of us have known a family member, friend, or co-worker who has served for our country. My grandfather is a veteran of the US Army who fought in the Korean War. My father is a disabled US Air Force veteran, and I have a very close friend, who I consider a brother, currently serving in the Army, overseas in the Middle East. In my previous life of finance, back in Missouri, I... Read More

Bongs and Barbells

November 4th, 2017

It’s been an exciting year in the cannabis and athletics industry. If you pay attention to the headlines in cannabis industry news publications like Sensi Magazine, Merry Jane, The Cannabist, Dope Magazine, and several others you may have noticed a rise in cannabis athletic related topics. Even many mainstream publications like Vogue are covering the rising industry that is CannaFitness. On top of an increase in news publications surrounding my favorite subject, consuming cannabis as an athlete or for overall health and wellness, there has been a rise in apparel companies promoting cannabis... Read More

Travel like an MVP with High End Transportation

October 28th, 2017

When Heather and I flew out to Portland, OR for The 420 Games we had the experience of a lifetime. Heather took 2nd place in Oregon, and being our first time in Portland, we had a great adventure. As much fun as we had, the highlight of our trip was the ride to and from the airport with High End Transportation. We had the pleasure of riding in the Tesla. Our driver’s name was Toni, who drives the Tesla often enough to be nicknamed, Toni Tesla. She was so nice and friendly. Our conversation made the trip even better, and Toni really made us feel like we were riding with family. The ride was a... Read More

Fighting ALS with Murder and Mystery

October 14th, 2017

I first started learning about cannabis having neuroprotective properties after witnessing my wife have a seizure. Having never witnessed a seizure before, and not knowing how long it would last, or what to do after, it was a frightening experience. As terrifying as it may have been, it was the catalyst which began our research into the medicinal properties of cannabinoids. What I’ve learned since then has been remarkable. The cannabis plant has the potential to help several conditions, and improve the quality of life for those who have been diagnosed with lifelong illnesses, but not all diseases... Read More

Cannabis, Stress, and Mental Health

September 30th, 2017

Having recently made a personal commitment to achieve a better work life balance, I find myself feeling encouraged to talk about stress, mental health, and even share a bit about my own life’s stressors. Mental health is very important, and the stress of life’s bountiful challenges can take a toll on it very quickly. Gary Vaynerchuk is quoted as saying, “Everybody has shit”, and he’s right. We all have our own shit in our lives we have to deal with. It can often be easy to get caught up in it, to the point you may not consider other people are going through their own shit, so keep that... Read More
