Interview with Tom Davin, CEO of 5.11 Tactical

On a recent business trip to Orlando, Tom Davin stopped by CrossFit Firebase for a mid-afternoon WOD. I was fortunate enough to be able to conduct a quick interview. This is the first time I’ve met Tom and I was thoroughly impressed with how down-to-Earth and how willing he was to share his time…not to […]

How Lance Armstrong Affected My Life and the Heroes You Should Be Rooting For

When I lived in Austin in the summer of 2000 I remember watching Lance Armstrong win the Tour de France, his second of seven, against Jan Ullrich. The entire city was rabid about the Tour and about Lance, because he was their favorite son. The rivalry against Ullrich was a great rivalry and would last […]

Chris Spealler – My First Foray Into Storify

It’s been well over a month since I last blogged and this pisses me off. Admittedly, I haven’t had the inclination to write because I recently changed jobs and the new joint has been siphoning away my creative juices. To get back into it, I decided to try my hand at a sweet social media […]

I’m a big fan of GRC for many reasons, not the least of which is that it changed my perspective on training and being a […]

Cool Tech Stuff for Training

2010 was a fantastic year for me training and fitness-wise, especially in the second half of the year when I really started to embrace how nutrition plays a dominant role in increasing performance. At age 35, I’m the fittest and strongest I’ve ever been, at least a full level fitter than when I was a […]

Upgrade Your WordPress and Guard Against the Worm!

I recently read on the WordPress blog and other news sources about a worm that is going around and attacking older WordPress blogs (pre-2.8.3). The worm registers itself as a user, exploits a security hole in older versions of WordPress, makes itself an admin, then uses javascript to hide itself while sticking spam and malware […]
