  • Fatherhood has given me some of the greatest gifts in my life. First my Dad @jtomwise taught me how to ski, play baseball and hunt, along with bad golf. Along the way, he also taught me how to be a man. When my earthly father occasionally fell short, my Heavenly Father stepped in and took better care of me than I ever deserved. Lastly my amazing wife @mrsdavidwise stood by me and gave the chance to BE a father. It really is the best thing I do. Check out this clip my family made for me for Father’s Day (full video #linkinbio), and swipe right to watch some Father’s Day golfing glory. Happy belated Father’s Day everyone! ..

  • It’s one thing to chase the top of any given field. When you are chasing the top you always have someone to chase. It’s harder to stay at the top. It’s harder to dig deep and find the motivation to keep progressing when you don’t have someone to look to for an example. .
I’ve become obsessed with finding high achievers in other realms and drafting off of their momentum. You never know what you might pick up by simply listening to someone’s story and watching their approach to life. I don’t think we should spend all of our time with people who cheer our every move. It’s more important to surround yourself with people who challenge and inspire you to new levels. .
I’ve had the great honor of learning the art and practice of target archery for the last couple days from @paul_tedford and I’ve walked away rich in experience. I also challenged him to the #30DayCardioChallenge and he accepted. We’re both growing. Big things to come. .

  • Finding balance in this overworked society is a challenge.  I’ve always been a busy guy, and that only seems to increase as time goes on. My time gets divided between skiing, training, speaking, writing, podcasting and vlogging (and that’s just the stuff I get paid for). It is important to remind myself that NOTHING that I will ever accomplish professionally will outweigh the things that I do with my family. .
Alexandra and I strive to go on at least one date a week (thanks grandparents and friends!). It is important to pursue our relationship first, yes even before our relationship with our kids. Then we take each kid out for some individual time once a week. . 
I try to get creative with each date, and it has provided some of my favorite memories. Never once have I regretted ditching some “work” to spend some time with my people. ❤️ @mrsdavidwise

  • Resilience: It’s the power to face down what life deals you with a grin. Resilience isn’t simply surviving in the hard times, it’s thriving THROUGH the hard times. .
Resilience is something that we think we will have ahead of time, but can’t really know until we have faced a challenge. This broken femur has taught me that in some ways I am tough and resilient, and in other ways I am soft and have a long way to go. .
It is a huge blessing to know and look up to some people who are more resilient than I am.  They are showing me how to Overcome. . 
It was my great honor to get my ass kicked in a hand-cycle ride with @john_kirsch. The guy is as resilient as it gets. He doesn’t let his spinal chord injury steal his joy, instead he gets out there and rides any way he can. I’d be happy to be more like John. Click the link in my bio for the full video. ..

  • For the past three years I have started out my summer with a 30 day cardio challenge. The goal is to do 30 minutes of cardio for 30 days in a row.  It is  challenging to pull it off without missing a day, but I’ve never regretted it. .
This year I broke my femur in April and it seemed like my planned June 1st start date wasn’t going to work. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that it was the perfect thing to do. Last year I almost exclusively rode my mountain bike and trail ran for my cardio. This year I am going to have to be much more creative! .
I would do this for my own health anyway, but I’m sharing it with you folks because I want you to join me. .
.
The concept is simple: pick a day and do 30 minutes of cardio activity for 30 days in a row. Trust me you won’t regret it. If you’re interested in joining me click the Facebook link in my bio and join the group. I look forward to seeing what you guys do! . 
Here’s a list of the creative cardio I have on the to do list so far: hand cycle with my paraplegic friend John, kayak, paddle board, outdoor recumbent bike, elliptical bike, unicycle, boxing class. Can you guys think of anything else? .

  • Overcoming; episode 4. One of the best ways that I’ve found to avoid depression and despair during a season of injury or illness is to celebrate the small victories. Celebrate them with passion and enjoy them. Its harder to get caught up on what you DON’T have when you are in a state of gratitude for what you DO have. Here’s to small victories, hemoglobin counts of 9.0 and getting to the most precious place there is: home. .

  • We have an interesting way of talking about injuries. We focus on the initial acute injury; the pain, the trauma, and the resilience that it takes to stay strong in that moment. Then we talk about the finished product; “he was totally broken off... but now look now he’s all better!”
.
What we gloss over is, in my opinion, the hardest  and most important part. “The Grind.” .
The acute injury taps into the crisis part of our brain; we shut down all other processes and simply survive. It is reactive, and in some ways it is simple. Then when we are fully recovered everyone celebrates with us; “wow, look how far you’ve come!”
.
What about the daily struggle of not being what you are used to being? What about the proactive part? .
A couple weeks after a major injury you still have to force yourself every day, almost every moment, to keep pressing on. You are better than you were, but it’s hard to remember that. All you know is that this hurts, it sucks and I just want to go ski powder and rip turns on my mountain bike like all my social media friends. But we press on, because we know where we want to be. .
That is the point of this overcoming series. It’s my invitation into the struggle with me. For anyone who is going through a struggle of their own, who has gone through a struggle, or who will go through a struggle. Overcoming is possible, and it’s necessary, but it’s best when done together. Check the link in my bio for Overcoming, episode 3.

  • I naturally go through my struggles quietly. I rarely let people in to my difficulties or pain. As an introvert even those closest to me rarely know what’s actually going on in my head.  During hard times I’m even less likely to share. My natural defense mechanism is to close all the doors and windows.  I’m learning that the hard things are the most important to let your loved ones into. Check out episode 2 of Overcoming by clicking the link in my bio!
