My first GoPro video. A Sunday bike ride around Austin.
I’m not terribly happy with how muddy YouTube made this video (currently researching better Compressor settings, so this link may change - make sure you watch in 1080p!), but I’m pretty happy with the results I got.
This video is also a reminder of how insane these temperatures changes are. I mean on Sunday there were ripped dudes with no shirts on running everywhere (see if you can catch them all in the video!), it was just such a beautiful day. And then today happened.
I feel this might be the future of travel videos. The First Person Bike Tour travel vid. Please feel free to travel the world this way, so that I can fuel my desire to see All The Places.

"I never thought you could leave me
I figured I was the one
But I understand your sadness
So I guess I should just hold my tongue”
"I’ve been to Nova Scotia
Sydney to Halifax
I’ll never take any pictures
Cuz I know, I’ll just be right back.”
This past weekend, I went to a crossfit competition in Moncton, New Brunswick. I completed four workouts (WODs) in two days. I would have done five, but I registered in the Masters category and not the scaled category, which meant I missed out on a workout that actually looked pretty fun.
I came home feeling strong, fit, and with a renewed outlook on crossfit, a community that at times seems overly competitive, and other times incredibly supportive. I’m so proud of the group of friends from our ‘box’ that challenged themselves in the competition, some of whom made it to the semifinals and finals, and all of whom excelled at something over the weekend.
I post this picture not because it’s a particularly glamourous or heavy lift. It was part of a 10 minute workout that involved rounds of deadlifts, box jumps (yes, up onto that box you see there) and pushups. it’s evidence that I signed on for the challenge and persevered through the workouts.
Sure, it’s a competition, but crossfit to me is about challenging yourself and seeing the benefits of physical fitness as the icing on the proverbial cake.
