Exactly 10 years ago today a race took place that would change my life forever. One of my favorite things about Track & Field is that every single oval is exactly 400m around. On any given day you have the opportunity to step on that rubber and change your destiny. Do not waste the opportunity! #trackandfield #Eugene2008 #800m
Darn good for recovery as well! Thanks for the fuel @DavesKillerBread. #LongRide #RoadBike #sponsored #ad (new personal best long ride is 50 miles for those that were wondering) πŸš΄πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ
Back from Kilimanjaro and fully recovered. It’s a perfect day to set a new personal best long ride! Fueling up with @daveskillerbread new Boomin’ Berry Bagels. #RoadBike #LongRide #sponsored #ad πŸš΄πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

Tough to say goodbye to all these new friends! Incredible memories made on this trip, but it’s time to return home. Thank you to Symmonds and Baur families for flying halfway across the world to join me on this adventure. Many more to come! 🌍 #Africa (kickass elephant photo by my very talented girlfriend @tiaaanaa...taken on her iPhone! We were only a few meters away from this elephant family 🐘🐘🐘)

SUCCESS!!! Six days of climbing, but today I stood at the top of Africa! A massive THANK YOU to our incredible guides and porters for making this an amazing climb. More pics coming soon! #kilimanjaro
On this #WorkoutWednesday, here's a quote from my latest #RunTheDay podcast with Jeff Troesch.
"For a lot of people it can feel overwhelming to think about oh my gosh the Olympic medal is that far away or the top of the mountain is that far away. It still comes down to are you committed today to the actions that give you the best chance for that outcome to transpire." πŸ“Έ: @runjwill (my nerdy assistant who's taking over while I climb a mountain)
The mental side of training is just as important as the physical! Becoming a mentally strong athlete takes work and usually some help. During the majority of my pro career I worked with a sports psychologist named Jeff Troesch. He is my guest on Episode 2 of Run The Day Podcast! Click the link in my bio to listen to his words of wisdom. #RunTheDay
Today I officially began my climb on Mount Kilimanjaro! Every day I will be calling in with updates along the journey. Make sure to go to RunGum.com/NowClimbing to listen to my Cybercasts from the mountain. #NowClimbing
Made lots of new animal friends today and got our first glimpse of Kilimanjaro. The climb begins tomorrow morning! Swipe right to see all my new friends. πŸ…πŸ†πŸ¦“πŸ¦πŸ˜πŸ¦πŸͺπŸ¦’πŸƒ #TIA
