Do you walk? Do you run? Did you know that IRONMAN, who acquired Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series in 2017, has been a part of the thinkspace community since May? Come join IRONMAN, the thinkspace team, and colleagues throughout the community October 10th to get outside and move! We’ll be reassembling at thinkspace post-run for electrolytes and refreshments before gearing up for your evening of events or relaxation.

What’s “Show & Trail?” A co-hosted 5k with thinkspace and IRONMAN, the “Show” gets to showcase the amazing community at and around thinkspace. Grit + Resilience is something that entrepreneurs embody, and this is something that won’t only show up in the way you do business, but live your life as well. Before the group heads off for a 5k walk/run/jog, our “Show-ers” will introduce themselves, their company, Grit story, and why they chose to become a part of the thinkspace community. We believe these are all profoundly connected.

Where: thinkspace Seattle
When: Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018 4:00-5:30pm

I’ve been tracking all my time while on a computer this week and it’s broken down to 30.5 hours. 49% of my time is spent on communication and scheduling, 21% on business, 11% on design and composition. I am very hopeful that hiring an executive assistant is going to be one of the best decisions I could make and I’m really excited about this. Have you hired an EA before? What was your experience? Here’s the JD for the position: https://bit.ly/2In7zPo

We’re down to the final stretch before our March 1st Lake Union launch. From the work side we’ve only got five offices left before we hit 100% pre-lease occupancy. We’ve got twelve days or 244 hours left!

From the personal side, I’ve run two half marathons in the last two weekends and tonight I went for a swim and covered 120 lengths, 3000 meters, or about two miles.

Mentally and physically, it’s time to give it all we’ve got. Be strong, maximum effort, set a new threshold, and get across the finish line.

Just finished a 14 mile run. However the first thing I did before I ran this AM was my Headspace sports meditation. The biggest opponent is always inside and my crazy has a loud voice. I believe that meditation and yoga makes me more resilient as an athlete and entrepreneur.

I feel like I’m on my way to being able to take on anything and later this year I’ll find out while I push equally hard to do an Ironman and raise money to grow and scale thinkspace. I’m starting to feel like I’m drawing power and energy from mediation + yoga and this isn’t “slowing down” or “self-care” but just another fuel source to ensure I can push harder, become even stronger, and increase my threshold.

For those of you that mediate or practice yoga, how does it help you as an entrepreneur and/or athlete?

As we launch our Lake Union location we’re doing both meditation and yoga at work and training for an Ironman. Join us?

Intense! Today I put on a Katalyst Suit, a compression textile with embedded electrodes that provides EMS (electromagnet shock) to 80% of the core muscle groups. It was set to a threshold level that felt like I was at mile 22 of full marathon. I was told that my 20 minute workout was equivalent to 90 minutes in the gym while not actually lifting any heavy weights, in fact, all I was holding was two small white towels. My abs, quads, and calves were on fire from doing this. Its going to be really interesting to see how my muscles feel tomorrow! We’re looking at bringing this Katalyst Suit to our new thinkspace Lake Union location. I’m curious if you would consider giving something like this a try?
