Yesterday would have been the start of the 545 mile 🚴♂️ ride from SF to LA to raise money for critical services @AIDSLifeCycle. I met up with a few intrepid cyclists at the Day 1 halfway point and rode them back to #SantaCruz. If you can give in any amount, please do http://www.tofighthiv.org/goto/joshuab
All wins get 2x 🏆 during these times. This morning I had a check-in with my strength coach @hvtraining and we went over some BFDs in my progress 5 weeks in. In my transition from mid to late forties tomorrow, I am giving myself an extra 4x 👊on all #littlevictories.

One of the most important things while sheltering-in-place is making sure to get outside. Take the time to explore around you, walk for a couple miles, enlist the whole family. #shelterinplace #santacruz #joyofmovement
After a spirited reading by @TieryasXu yesterday, I’m excited to see how Peter brought the 80s alt-history world of #USJ into 2020 with Cyber Shogun Revolution. Pick it up, https://www.penguinrandomhouse.ca/books/535803/united-states-of-japan-by-peter-tieryas/9780857665331
This is the second year in a row that I ran a 10K for the first day of the Baha’í Fast. Last year was my first 10K ever. Right now I’m running a ~18mi a week training for a 1⁄2 marathon.
I listened to this episode on how natural movement trumps working out in the gym while running in the Santa Cruz mountains. I found myself taking more opportunities to run/jump through obstacles meant for mountain bikers, work my way around grazing cows, and across creeks. Give it a go! https://pca.st/huagxk2f

Last weekend I ran the “Joy of Movement 10K”—ambling up and down a ravine, past grazing cows, dodging eucalyptus debris in 50 mph wind gusts—while listening to @kevinrose and @kellymcgonigal talk about her new book https://pca.st/1s7wslhu
Today is the 4th anniversary of my daily meditation practice and I’m still holding close to my goal of 30 minutes with an average time of 26 min every day h/t @insighttimer
Joshua has spent the better part of twenty years helping founders get from idea to launch and from launch to thriving company. He was the president of an e-commerce platform and helped start an eco-friendly plastic company whose materials are used today across the yoga and shoe industry. In 2012, Joshua was sent on a different kind of journey—a health crisis that had him fighting for his life. With the standard of care not working, he dove deep into researching genetics, the microbiome, mitochondrial health, fasting and ketosis. In 2018 Joshua succeed in hacking his autoimmune disease and emerged an athlete, riding over 2000 miles on a single speed bike and competing in two triathlons.
