Mark Baumer.

Not sure how I started following Mark Baumer’s journey to walk barefoot across American to support awareness of climate change and water shortages, maybe through some Facebook link, but I happened to start following his journey from the beginning.  He started in October and fast forward to September I’m in my car with my oldest son going home from a soccer game, when I see this guy in a poncho, bright green shorts walking barefoot. I knew instantly it was him just from watching his videos which he posted which were awesome and entertaining.  I had to pull over and introduce myself.  We chatted just for a few seconds and off we went on our own ways. He certainly had a unique personality and I was inspired with his outlook on life.

When I heard he had been killed it really shocked and saddened me. I only met him for a few seconds but it seemed I actually knew him more than that.  Just a tragic accident and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.  RIP Mark, what you were doing was amazing and I enjoyed following your journey.

Heading home during my run and I see this guy standing in the middle of the road with a tripod and camera. This was about as random as you can get. Having fun on my nephews drum kit. My Crew. Snow run. A little Sunday road trip. The human flag.  This a move that if you stop doing it it becomes more difficult to perform. Muddy trail run.
#shammasandals Another past time hobby of mine.  This unusually warm weather wants me to dust off the longboard. A quick KB circuit. Hits the cardio as well as everything else. 50lb KB

3 Rounds as quick as possible.
2 - windmills
5 - rack squats
6 - snatches
On both right and left sides. Outside kettle bell drills. One arm snatches with a 50lb kettle bell.
