1. WHAT IS YOUR 2020 PURSUIT?

Crossfit Open and 10k Waterloo Classic

2. WHY ARE YOU STEPPING INTO THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR?

I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone. I hate running with a passion and truly don’t understand what people love so much about it, so I want to find out for myself. Maybe I’ll learn to love it. I’d never know if I didn’t give it a shot and this pursuit is holding me accountable.

3. WHAT DO YOU SEE AS YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE ALONG THE WAY TO ACHIEVING THIS GOAL?

Negative self-talk for the run. Re-injury for CrossFit. I still have a-ways to go with my physio but I’m working on a plan that will help me be proactive.

4. HOW HAS THE LP FAMILY HELPED YOU IN THE NYBY SO FAR?

The kick-off party for NYBY was awesome and made me think differently about my pursuit. I’ve also positively impacted a few people around me by getting them to join me in the CrossFit pursuit (Lisa Richter) and a couple of people from work who want to join me in the 10k Waterloo Classic.

Riley Honsberger (30) Millwright – Entrepreneur

“Just working to be better every day”

1. WHAT IS YOUR 2020 PURSUIT?

Main 2020 pursuit is to create a lifestyle of fitness and health mainly in endurance sports. I want to see how far I can push this body and mind. I have two main pursuits: a half ironman and a 50mile trail run.

2. WHY ARE YOU STEPPING INTO THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR?

I was kind of shocked by my mental toughness last year being able to do the races (half/full marathon) with little to no training, but I finished feeling the “what if”. This year I want to be prepared on all fronts, mentally, physically to remove the “what if’s”. I feel these two major challenges will be a good test of what I can do when I’m properly prepared.

3. WHAT DO YOU MOST LOOK FORWARD TO IN THESE EVENT(S)?

I’m looking forward to seeing what proper training can do. There will be adversities in both races that will challenge me and I’m looking forward to seeing how I handle them. It’s probably weird but I’m looking forward to the pain cave. You learn a lot about yourself when you’re in that zone.

4. WHAT DO YOU SEE AS YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE ALONG THE WAY TO ACHIEVING THIS GOAL?

My lifestyle isn’t ideal for training. I do very labour intensive work. So at the end of my work day I’m going to need to have my goals and accountability at the forefront to make sure I get in my training. Then, make it to LP to join my 5am’ers in the workouts the following morning.

5. HOW HAS THE LP FAMILY HELPED YOU IN THE NYBY SO FAR?

Oh man, LP is pivotal to this. Surrounded by so much knowledge and ambition. I’ve wanted to do this for awhile but didn’t have the knowledge or confidence to go after it. LP has been the push to make these things happen. Accountability of NYBY is keeping me in check.

Tracy Miller (42) Wife – Teacher – Mom of 2

1. WHAT IS YOUR 2020 PURSUIT?

My 2020 pursuit is the Milton Triathlon on June 7th. (750m swim, 30k bike and 7k run).

2. WHY ARE YOU STEPPING INTO THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR?

It has been 20 years since I completed my last triathlon (gasp…what the??), which, at that time, was a requirement of being a member of the UW swim team. Watching our girls complete the Tri-gator last year inspired me, and ultimately made me want to challenge myself to complete one once again.

3. WHAT DO YOU MOST LOOK FORWARD TO IN THIS EVENT?

The swim. I have taken a long break from swimming, as many years of countless hours training left me feeling waterlogged and “over it.” I look forward to getting back into the water again while adding the extra challenge of the open water (which I have never done).

4. WHAT DO YOU SEE AS YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE ALONG THE WAY TO ACHIEVING THIS GOAL?

R.U.N.N.I.N.G.  🙂 🙂 🙂

To say it’s my biggest nemesis is an understatement. I need to learn how to breathe and pace, on top of learning to embrace the discomfort (ha!).

5. HOW HAS THE LP FAMILY HELPED YOU IN THE NYBY SO FAR?

NYBY has helped me map out my road to this competition. It has forced me to think about how I intend to achieve it, while giving me the plan to get me started. Having the supports in place to help me organize equipment and a training plan has helped me to feel less anxious about it.

Brandon Mullen (28) – Sales Executive

“Motivation, Determination, Compassion”

1. WHAT IS YOUR 2020 PURSUIT?

My pursuit is the 2020 CrossFit Open.

2. WHY ARE YOU STEPPING INTO THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR?

I’ve chosen this pursuit because I find it’s helping me get back in touch with Sport. Growing up I played a lot of organized hockey at a competitive level and since moving outside of that I’ve missed the aspect of competing. I find that although I still join Men’s leagues to stay in touch with the sport, it doesn’t bring that same element of mental strategy or the end goal of competing to win, that I miss. Since being introduced to the Sport of CrossFit I’ve found it really allows me to get back into that mental state and get back involved in competition. Plus, who doesn’t want to learn to handstand walk?

3. WHAT DO YOU MOST LOOK FORWARD TO IN THIS EVENT?

I’m really looking forward to seeing the change in my body, mind, and performance from building the right habits and creating more consistency in my training. I’ve made some notes on where I’m starting- how many reps of certain exercises I can do (or if I have to do the scaled movement), what weight I’m using for different lifts, and I’m excited to push myself to be better than where I’m starting.

4. WHAT DO YOU SEE AS YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE ALONG THE WAY TO ACHIEVING THIS GOAL?

I think there are two challenges I’m going to face and I hope to over come them both quickly. The first being the mental challenge or adapting a growth mindset. Not cheating myself by not doing full reps or stopping early when the workout gets tough. The second being my endurance/stamina during workouts. But with all the great educational resources that LP has to offer I’m excited to learn so I can become better and crush workouts on the way to my pursuit.

5. HOW HAS THE LP FAMILY HELPED YOU IN THE NYBY SO FAR?

I’ve met some awesome people, both at the 5 am and 6 am classes, who have helped me push myself, as well as giving me pointers on technique. Everyone is supportive and it’s amazing to get encouragement from other groups during the workouts. Of course, big shout out to the coaches who push you to be better every day. I’m both proud and fortunate to be apart of the LP Family!

Jocy Curtis (26) Wife – Office Manager

Fitness: Addicted – Work Hard, Stay Humble

1. WHAT IS YOUR 2020 PURSUIT?

Ottawa Scotiabank Half Marathon is my 2020 pursuit.

2. WHY ARE YOU STEPPING INTO THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR?

I am stepping into this pursuit because I absolutely hate running and want to push my mind and body out of the comfort zone and (hopefully) come out stronger!

3. WHAT DO YOU MOST LOOK FORWARD TO IN THIS EVENT?

I look forward to training with TyCu ❤️ (Haha joking). I look forward to making commitments in my health, training and nutrition, training with family and friends who have similar goals, seeing how far I can push myself, and just getting more educated in the sport of running.

4. WHAT DO YOU SEE AS YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE ALONG THE WAY TO ACHIEVING THIS GOAL?

My biggest challenge in achieving this goal will be my own self. My mind has a tendency to play some pretty good tricks on me, so overcoming and actually transforming my mental game will be the greatest struggle.

5. HOW HAS THE LP FAMILY HELPED YOU IN THE NYBY SO FAR?

The LP family is always there to cheer me on no matter what the pursuit- which is always encouraging! The NYBY challenge has been teaching me how to take care of myself both mentally and physically. It has been equipping me the the exact tools I need to go and crush my 2020 goals 🙌🙌🙌

(Honestly, I don’t know that I would have set this goal without joining the NYBY challenge…. so there’s that too!)

Megan O’Neill (27) – Chiropractor

Nourish – Move – Heal

1. WHAT IS YOUR 2020 PURSUIT?

A Tri-a-triathlon  (July) and a Sprint Triathalon (September) and a Half Marathon (TBD)

2. WHY ARE YOU STEPPING INTO THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR?

I chose to work towards a half marathon because I completed one two years ago and have wanted to do another ever since. I really want to improve on my time and train smarter. I chose the triathlon because I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and swimming definitely fulfills that requirement! I’m starting from scratch on the swim training but really looking forward to pushing my boundaries.

3. WHAT DO YOU MOST LOOK FORWARD TO IN THIS EVENT?

I am really looking forward to learning a new skill. It’s not often that you learn something new as an adult and I’m excited to see improvement along the way. I’m also really excited to get outside during my training!

4. WHAT DO YOU SEE AS YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE ALONG THE WAY TO ACHIEVING THIS GOAL?

My biggest challenges will be avoiding injury and avoiding negative self talk, especially when it comes to swimming. I am working on staying positive and maintaining a “growth mindset” when it comes to building a new skill. As a Chiro, I am also working on practicing what I preach on the prehab and rehab front to avoid injury while training!

5. HOW HAS THE LP FAMILY HELPED YOU IN THE NYBY SO FAR?

The LP family has been super supportive and has motivated me to choose a pursuit out of my comfort zone. It’s been great to be accountable to a group of like minded people and have resources available to help with training programs and answer any questions along the way! The LP family sees everyone as an athlete and it feels awesome to get back in to that mindset.
