I know I’m late to this story, but I got the chils watching this video!
To anyone who has ever been laughed at for dreaming big…this is the video to watch!
What an amazing story! Truly inspiring!

Breakfast 4/27/09: Oatmeal, Water with a packet of Emergen-C Joint Healthand a grapefuit.
Between training 5-6 hours a day, speaking at schools and corporations, trying to pitch for sponsorships, writing the blog and other projects I realize I have let my focus on my diet get away from me.
Time to refocus this area! I’m going to be keeping a little food log of what I’m eating for a nutritionist that I have just started working with who is going to help me optimize my fuel!
I currently weigh 212lbs with 18% body fat. Goal is to be around 195-200lbs with 10%.
Lunch: Salmon, 2 pieces of prime rib and asparagus from Organique on 23rd between Park and Lexington (www.organiqueonline.com)
Just finished 90 minutes of Pilates at BodhiZone. I’m eating lunch (above) digesting for a bit and then going to hit up some cardio at NY Sports Club before going to fencing practice.
Just did 50 minutes of cardio at NY Sports Club followed by some walnuts and a water drink. Also, I’ve had 2 Isopure Protein shakes which have zero carbs and 0 sugar.
Practiced for 2 hours and then had an egg white Omelete with chicken and tomatoe…forgot to take a picture…I eat it before I realized…guess I was hungry!
Day 1 down and counting to 10% and 195!
What I’m reading now…
I loved his other book “Awaken The Giant Within” and so just picked up this one to read.
So far, of all the “self-helf” books I have read Anthony Robbins’ definitely is the most comprehensive and helpful.
Looking forward to this one!
Portland, Oregon was the location for the 3rd and final North American Cup of the season…
The “hot bachelors’ as dubbed by the NY Post had a great competition!
Jason Rogerscaptured the gold defeating his Olympic teammate /clubmate James Williams 15-12. Tim Morehouse (that’s me!) and Ben Igoe finished 3rd.
In the semi-final matches, Williams defeated Morehouse 15-14 and Rogers beat Ben Igoe 15-8. There were 120 competitors overall.
Overall, was a solid performance for me although obviously I would have liked to have done a bit better. Jason won his first NAC so we’re all happy he can take that monkey off his back.(So to speak!)
Our clubmate Daryl Homer finished 7th and Sean Buckley finished in the top-16. (He looks like a force to be reckoned with in the future)
Other interesting notes:
* James eat some bad Denny’s and spent the night puking…
* James also woke up on the day of the competition at 3am Portland time thinking it was 6am and that he had to get ready for the competition…
* We compete next in Madrid, Spain on May 20
I’m going to have someone updating my twitter account during the competition with information on Jason Rogers, James Williams, Daryl Homer and myself as well as a few others…
Stay tuned…we begin at 11am EST.
Now you too can dress like a fencer…at work, school or play!
The fencing revolution continues with Italian Vogue’s unveiling of a fencing clothing line!!!!
Let’s start wearing fencing clothes on the street!!! Who is with me???
The article utilizes athletes Fabrice Jeannet of France and Matteo Tagliariol of Italy and a model to contrast the real competitive outfits to the clothing line.
The 2-page spread reads: (something like this via Igoogle translator)
And the most noble of all sports as loyal and respectful of the opponent’s own…
The etymology of the word Italian fencing brings with it the meaning of discipline…
connected to the function of the sword as a means not born to hit, but to defend and to his nickname of weapon white
Alright people, I expect to see everyone wearing fencing outfits around town in the near future!
Sadly, when we (Jason Rogers and myself) applied a few months ago to be on Season 15 of Amazing Race we at least expected to hear a response!
Several months have passed and we haven’t even received notice that we aren’t getting an interview.
Anyone know anyone at the Amazing Race???
It was always a long shot, but would have been fun!
