impossible2Possible Expedition and More !!!

impossible2Possible Expedition !

Hey Everybody !
I hope you are all enjoying the spring- and are getting out into the great outdoors for great adventure !
impossble2Possible is announcing an new expedition series that will kick off this in September this year
on Baffin Island. Details are on the impossible2Possible website. As with South Pole Quest, we will be connecting to
students and schools with a live and interactive website which will also feature a comprehensive educational resource.
Everything is free, and we are once again asking teachers and schools to join us by registering on the impossible2Possible
website. One of the most interesting components of this next adventure is that 4 young adventurers- fit and ready- will join
the i2P team ! These youth adventurers will lead the blogging and communications to our partner schools...exciting !
Please ask your local schools to sign up for the web resource- and contact us if there are any questions !
There is also a sign up section for those young adventurers you know who are wishing to apply. Its Free !

Running The Sahara will be screened in support of Ryans Well Foundation. All of the proceeds from sales of the tickets
will go to this awesome organization which provides clean water to developing countries. Please contact my wife Kathy for


The most common question i am asked these days by my clients is: "What should i eat following my long run....i am never hungry !"
My answer ? Here's a shake rcipe that i have found works great if i am rushed- or am not in the mood for "solid" food..
1 scoop vanilla whey protein, 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1 handful spinach (yes, spinach), 1/2 cup yogurt, 1 teaspoon flax oil and water to desired consistency. 
Blend like crazy...and drink !
Another common question..."Should i stretch before or after my run ?" Answer: After. I have found stretching at the end of a long run improves recovery 
time, reduces injury- and is much safer as tissues are warmed up.

Okay- More coming soon.....
