Hello and welcome everyone! Summer in March? Yes...and we are off to
a fast start. No matter what sport...a fast start is everyone's dream...
the psyche. The race against time belongs to every sport and every
participant. That internal clock is key to the "game clock." Knowing
ourselves, out limits and our max. The last two minutes, or twenty seconds, or two seconds is critical in any competition. How you "close,"
will make the differance in how you finish. Most competitors tense or
"freeze up" in the "close portion" of the event. Relax...breathe and stay
within yourself.

Have a meaningful life everyone! Jimmy O

Hello and welcome everyone! Training muscles is an easier task than
training the brain. We tend to delay or ignore completely the training
of our brain. Why? Perhaps because we can't see our brain in the mirror,
like we see the other muscles of our body. Select a word that you will use
to trigger the brain into action...causing your body to perform at a higher
level. Maxing out...beyond our self imposed limitations. Just when you
think you have reached your limits...say the word you have selected. The
brain will repond and the muscles will respond. Repeat this over and
over again. You will be amazed at the results.
Have a meaningful life everyone.

Hello and welcome everyone! It's in the air...I can sense it...I can feel it!
What ever your sport...your event, it is time to put your "game face on."
Mental fitness is paramount now. Train your brain and only then can you
train your musules to execute when you need a "peak moment." Through
this process you create and achieve the "psychological moment." The
time when you are most apt to peak in that command moment. When you can
visualize yourself winning long before the finish line, you are already
there. First to the finish line where winners and survivors always meet.

Have a meaningfull life everyone!

Hello and welcome everyone! I'm taking this opportunity to pay tribute
to some very special people. Each year since 2004 I began competing for
those who cannot...cancer survivors, care takers, the physically and
mentally challenged. My sponsors are a great support team for my cause.
So, to all of you having to deal with cancer or any other health issue, face
it square on...never, ever give in. I hear "healthy people" say things like
"I'm tired," "I don't feel like working out," or "the weather is bad." Talk
to someone who has terminal cancer...and look at yourself in the mirror.
Now what do you say? For me, it is not just competing for the gold, it's
about life and hope for my special people. One other thing...I'm a
prostate cancer survivor...March, 2004. I thought my life was over. I try
to motivate my "special group of people," they don't realize how much
they motivate me. A big shout out to all of you and thank you. Value life.

Have a meaningfull life everyone! Jimmy O
