Balboans its time to help some of our own. As you many know Clark and Steff tied the knot last Fall and for their honeymoon they did the ultimate adventure by renting a sweet motorhome traveling up and down both of New Zealand’s spectacular islands. The result is the video above.

So here is where you come in. They have entered the video in a contest put on by Wilderness New Zealand in the hopes that the video with the most likes and shares will get a credit towards taking another amazing trip. Its the least we can do for our family and Holiday Party hosts. We will be posting on our FB page as well, of which shares their seem to be the most beneficial. Or the link is posted below or click on video.

-The Wilmoth’s do New Zealand
Cheers!

Whats the point of having wings if you are aren’t willing to fly.

Think like a bumblebee, train like a racehorse. It’s a phrase used by world class endurance coach Joe Friel. 

“Bumblebees are relatively huge, furry insects with tiny little wings that fly with incredible speed, accuracy and agility. NASA scientists were infatuated with the bumblebee. How could something that big and furry fly with such little wings? So they studied the bumblebee.

After extensive research, the scientists unanimously came to the same conclusion: bumblebees can’t fly. The physics behind bumblebees simply say they are too large and too heavy. But here is the interesting part: No one told the bumblebee it can’t fly, so it goes right on flying. It flies even though the smartest people on Earth doubt it can

Because the bee has ultimate faith in itself, it is able to do amazing things. You, as an athlete, need to have unyielding belief in yourself. Don’t let your past, your peers, your family or your competitors limit your performance. You, like the bee, can fly if you believe you can.

Racehorses are just like other elite athletes. They know they are athletes, and they know they are different from the other horses. The difference between racehorses and you is racehorses don’t second-guess their training program, their abilities or their coaches

Racehorses go all out when asked to; they don’t save something for tomorrow. You’ll never see a racehorse doing extra laps around the track because it felt like it should be doing more. Racehorses don’t look at other horses’ training programs and freak out because the other horses are doing double days. Racehorses just do exactly what is asked of them—nothing more, nothing less

Racehorses, just like you as an elite athlete, have one purpose in their lives: to get faster and stronger, to be better. Think like a bumblebee, train like a racehorse.” – Athlete_Daily
