We enjoyed doing a keynote for this Medical Society in Orgeon Thursday night in Salem. We felt well taken care of last night. We had a fantastic dinner and heard some very committed physicians meet and greet with each other and discuss their year ahead.
It was a long journey to get here. I was in my office 8-8pm Wednesday, came home to workout in our home gym and pack. Kary had just as much of a long day with the kids and getting ready.
Hitting the sack at midnight and hearing our alarm go off at 5am was a challenge. But there is no feeling like you are going to speak with people and make a difference in their lives.

The limo came at 6am and we were off to the airport for 6:30am. Our flight left at 8am. Arriving in Vancouver after a 5 hour flight with our two youngest children ( 2 1/2 and 6 months), was a blast. It is amazing you can have fun when many people say, “How can you be smiling when you travel with young children?” Well, if you bring a DVD player with Wiggles DVD’s, healthy snacks, and a flexible aittude, anything is possible.
Fit to Lead was the title of our keynote. We shared our insights and perspectives on how living an active lifestyle can make you more productive in every area of your life.
Next week, Tuesday evening we leave for Boston, Mass to speak at a huge conference for health professionals. They are expecting 35,000 from across North America.
