Can you crawl through a window?

So today I found myself crawling through a tiny window. Yes, it’s true. CRAWLING THROUGH A TINY WINDOW. My friend locked her keys in the house and a locksmith would take more than an hour.

My friend is about 5’8” and I’m 5’, so by default I became the window ninja. She found a ladder and some tools in the open shed while I looked for an open window.

Don't make someone else Rich - Nutrition Business Model

How many times a day, week, month do you have clients/strangers come up to you and ask you about your nutrition? I am always surprised when I start to break down how many people I talk to about nutrition and find out those numbers range from 30-100+ a month. What advice are you giving them? Are you suggesting the Whole 30 diet? Paleo? Eating Organic? Or just marketing certain grains and vegetables that you have found work for you?

Triathlon Training Challenges

I have been training for my first triathlon and it has brought on different challenges. One of my main challenges has been to fit in swimming training. I am not a fan of public pools and do not live to close to a lake where I can train during the week. I have added rowing into my routine and try to row about 6000 meters every couple days. Will this work? Or are there better directions to go then rowing?
