WHY 5 AM?


Became an avid runner to lose weight, lost 80 lbs, and fell in love with the morning run!

Nothing works BETTER, MORE EFFECTIVELY, and MORE EFFICIENTLY than a run (or any cardio!) first thing in the morning.

Try it, compare it to anything else you have tried, and see for yourself!


5 AM RULES

to be observed and enforced at all times!

You do not talk about 5 am running, you simply do it.

You do not talk during a 5 am run.

This is the very first thing you do in the morning.

You must begin before the sun is fully up above the horizon.

Every day is strongly discouraged – you must get a day of rest!

Every other day is strongly encouraged.

A running partner is strongly discouraged during 5 am run.

No interruptions whatsoever are permitted.

Never encourage others to become 5 AM Runners.

Never give up, never quit, never stop fighting. Whatever goal you’re working toward - don’t let obstacles and setbacks stop you. Reframe challenges into your greatest gifts. As the champ said: “You’re not going to win every fight, but you sure get up and try again!”

The news media works daily to ensure everyone knows the names of the murderers and other scum. We, instead, will name the heroes - and in real life, heroes aren't always dressed in uniforms. They look like us, but they are not exactly like all of us - they face adversity with courage, saving people and not expecting anything in return. The least we can do is remember and never forget their names. Remember these two names in particular:
- Eva Mireles and Irma Garcia, the two teachers from Texas, who died protecting and saving countless children. As King Solomon said: “The memory of the righteous is a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot.”

Can you hear it? Exactly!
Listen to the silence. It has so much to say… sometimes we just need to turn down the volume knob on life, push the ‘off’ button…

This isn't about guns - it never is. Should it be difficult to buy a gun, with tight background checks and a waiting period? - absolutely! But that isn't a total solution. What is? Put security where it belongs - schools, churches & synagogues, convention centers; yes - a serious guard with a serious gun. It costs money? - good, let's pay for it!!! And while we are at it, let's pay for increased available mental health treatment, because guess what - all of these psychos have a personal history of mental illness, physical or sexual abuse or trauma; sometimes documented and sometimes undetected. It costs money? - good, let's find it!!! Did you know that this monster posted about his plans on Facebook - did anyone care?

Once in a while, an invention comes along that defines humanity and impacts the world forever. This is not one of them 😆 Still peculiar & graceful.
