Fire, Ready, Aim 492

Inspiration:  It’s the first weekend of the 2019 gun season for Michigan deer hunters, let’s hope the technique is Ready, Aim, FIRE!  That three-step technique works in the cycle studio too:  warm up, get psyched & get READY to ride…AIM your efforts to meet your goals…and when the time is right, let go and FIRE up and give it all you got! I’ve been using the full (60m) and short (45m) version of this ride profile all week and have many returning favorites & these NEW (to me) favorites: Colors, YOU, Love Me Again, Hey! Hey!  RESULTS HAVE BEEN AMAZING!

Also this weekend…the most talked about football game of the regular season (in Michigan), MSU / Michigan State Spartans v. U of M / Michigan Wolverines!  It’s a good one, tied at 7 in the middle of the 2nd quarter.  LET’S GO SPARTANS!

DON’T FORGET, MEN…this is our month, aka MOVEMBER!  I’ve been working on my mustache this month and sharing some stats to raise awareness about men’s health issues, including:

  • In the US, men die on average 5 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons
  • 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
  • Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young US men
  • And not only do men account for 3 out of 4 suicides, but suicide is also the second leading cause of death among US men aged 10-34
