This will be my third trip to the games. As I said last year, I compete with my father in my mind. He is now 80 years old and his body suffering the effects of Parkinson's disease. I watched him most of my life compete and value health and strength. He is my reminder to enjoy and appreciate my health and strength now, knowing I will not always possess them. I am a performance psychologist and cofounder of Neurofit: Center for Human Performance where I work with high level athletes, executives, and performers assisting them to reach their fullest potential. I find it a deeply meaningful way to be in people's lives. A big shout out to my wife, Pam, for all her support and encouragement. To my coach, Joe Cebulski, who knows more about training and the body than anyone I have ever met. And to my community of 8th Day Gym: I have never felt more at home than when I am with you.
