Greatness Found

After 5 months, 30 cities, 17,000 miles with only 1 message, “why settle for the good when you can go for the great,” we are home in sunny San Diego and back out there enjoying Gut Check classes with our hard working crew. What an absolutely life changing experience this was. We were able to truly see the topography of this great Nation like never before as well as to interact with thousands of motivated individuals during the Good to Great workouts that we hosted in each city on the tour. Contrary to much of the crap that the media spews, from our experience, there are still plenty of hard working fun-loving people out there that like to work hard and sometimes play harder. The theme of the tour was a quote from one of America’s most prolific runners, Steve Prefontaine, and goes, “why settle for the good when you can go for the great.” Trust me, there was no settling for the good out there. Nicole & I would like to THANK our sponsors Road Runner Sports, New Balance, Injinji toesocks and JUCY Campervan for making this amazing journey possible. As well as all the hard working Gut Check team leaders that took care of the HQ crew while we were spreading the love.

 
One more thing, as most of you know, I’m a man that lives by sayings and my wife even keeps a list of Joe-isms, so after going for the great, it’s now time to switch gears to “if it doesn’t challenge then it doesn’t change you.” This past weekend saw a dozen hard working gals complete the 12 Hour Ladies Night Out – 3 Peak Challenge and up next, the 36 Hour Ultimate SUCK, named One of the Most Extreme Fitness Tests in the Nation, followed by the Rabbit Peak trail marathon. I can promise, you join us for one of these events and it will change you why you’re going for the great. Kill two birds with one stone. Hope to see you on the trails.
