Alaska Update Day 3 - Burn with Kearns 90 Day Fitness Challenge

Yesterday, we kicked off a Burn with Kearns' 90 Day Fitness Challenge at Anthony Barker's Valley Tang Soo Do in Wasilla, Alaska . We had 34 people sweating and smiling to the Burn with Kearns' protocols. Today, I will be performing an MMA conditioning workout then watching UFC 111 at the Barker's home. You want mind clearing experience this is the place!

Alaska Day Two

Today I saw one of God's finest creations, Mount McKinleyIt is the tallest point in North America, at 20 thousand feet. There is no pollution up here, the air and water feel and taste different. This is truly the last frontier in America. 
To put Alaska into prospective, the state of Alaska would take up two thirds of the United States! Three quarters of the state is roadless. The air is so clear that it is hard to judge distance. Something that looks close is actually far away. 
With all the trails and woods out here, it is simple to get back to nature. You can be at peace while exercising or taking time to get quite. Time feels as if it stops. You can be a human being instead of a human doing. 
Special thanks to Anthony Barker and Valley Tang Soo Do for showing me this beautiful state. I can't wait to come back. Stay tuned for my video blog next week."

Arrived in Alaska

Mr Barker of Valley Tang Soo Do Martial Arts School picked me up last night at the Anchorage Airport a little after midnight. First I have to say I am very impressed with Alaskan Airlines. The service was great and the experience awesome. Upon my arrival at the airport I found the airport to be one of the nicest I have been in. It is clean and has a variety of food shops and stores. 

Mr Barker drove me through a glacieral lake where I saw the mountains for the first time. It literally looks as if you could touch the stars on top of them. This morning as I look out the window of my hotel, the sun is just rising over the mountains. I find myself with little sleep, but very inspired. This truly is God's country and I can't wait to experience it. I'm off now to catch the sunrise and a hike.
