“Take risks before life gets in the way.”

*I’m 47 and recently married (again). We don’t have kids and now is the time for me to strike before life gets in the way. What’s your story?

“I just wish I had that 25-year-old body,”

Elway engages daily in remaining fit. Today this involves abs work, a stair-climb machine, and the stationary bike.

*Do some ab work, get on that stair climber and stationary bike at the gym today.

“I think when you get to the point where you don’t need to be in love, then you could be in love. You have to just be OK with yourself-and that’s a long process.”

*Be OK with yourself. If you’re not, start that long process today.

“Skateboarding has given me everything I have and created who I am. I understood from an entertainment side, that no one had ever approached the biggest athletic alternative to organized sports as sports entertainment.  No one took the approach of building an entertainment product. That has made the difference in why we are so successful,”

*Take what you love doing the most and create something that no one has ever done with it. This is 365DOLF for me.

“Oh, pizza. It was always late-night pizza for me,”

“It was just pizza and ice cream. That’s all we ate — pizza and ice cream, pizza and ice cream.”

*Eat like Bradley Beal (when he gained 20 lbs. of sympathy weight while his wife was pregnant), whose nickname is “Big Panda” because he can eat so much.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
