Hey monkiis,

I've never been a big New Year's resolution guy. However, I find that reflecting on the previous year is always a good exercise to revisit the joy from the highlights and on a darker note, to look into your own abyss and get an honest starting point from which to move forward.

My reflections/highlights from 2020:

  1. The birth of my second daughter.
  2. Killing my first Elk with a bow.
  3. Climbing the Diamond twice (1,000 ft rock wall) on Longs Peak.
  4. 'Newborn starts' for mountain adventures.
  5. Microworkouts and 'All-Day' Workouts.
  6. Taking time off to let my body recover.
  7. Launching Stoic on Kickstarter.

Two Challenges for 2021:

  1. 21 days in a row, do 21 reps of any movement.
  2. Take the first 7 days of January to come up with a Misogi for 2021. Email me your Misogi:
