This will be my third visit to the World Famous Mud Run at Camp Pendleton.

My first was in 2013. That’s me up there carrying 6.2 miles worth of mud over the finish line. My expression and appearance notwithstanding, I felt fantastic. That ice cold, post-race Shock Top never tasted so good.

Next was 2014. But there are no pictures from that race. If there were, they would show me with a grimace on my face and a cane in my hand. I was relegated to the role of cheerleader by chronic knee and back pain.

Now there’s 2015. I’ve been stretching and rolling and lifting with a vengeance. What happened between this year and last? I found religion, Brothers and Sisters – the religion of active rehabilitation and recovery – the miracle of movement. Hallelujah.


Movement is responsible for my recovery. Movement has made me feel better. Movement has improved the quality of my life. Imagine a non-profit dedicated to creating miracles from movement.

That’s Fit 4 The Cause. It raises money for health-related causes through pop-up “fun”-raising fitness events. It creates programming to help those with health-related challenges lead richer, fuller, more enjoyable lives through fitness. Its mission is to prove that the world can be a better place through fitness . . . one mud run, one cardio class, one bicycle race at a time.

Here’s the website. Check it out. See the difference it has started to make. Imagine the possibilities. It’s remarkable. It’s revolutionary. I’m so proud to be a Fit 4 The Cause evangelist. Can I get an Amen?


I’m bound and determined to raise $7,500 in support of Fit 4 The Cause and its general programming. With your help, I can do that. That’s just $25 from just 300 of you, or just $50 from just 150 of you . . . you get the picture. While more is always better, less would be just fine as well.

So, whether you like me, hate me, don’t remember me or just want to see some dirty pictures of me after the Mud Run . . . or not . . . please help me help that which helps some many others through fitness. All donations to Fit 4 The Cause are tax-deductible to the fullest extent provided by law.
