Obstacle course racing is the next soccer. Yeah, it's a 'thing'. You've probably heard of one. Or know someone who has---or will---do one. They change lives.
And for us MyFixitUpLifer's there's an extra cool part: It's loaded with DIY of building stuff. So if you’re not lacing up for your own obstacle course racing journey, without people to build the obstacles—for races or for backyards---the race is just a walk in the woods. So this MyFixitUpLife show will inspire the fire for the DIY of OCR.
Spartan Race’s (in)famous Race Director Norm Koch takes us behind the spectacle where the tools are machetes and chainsaws and a whole lotta work. And HGTV’s John Colaneri—co-host of America’s Most Desperate Kitchens and a Spartan racing / Cross-fit nut job (we love you anyway Johnny)—chimes in with fitness tips he uses to stay extra handsome.
This isn't about the gym. Or how fast you go. It's about life itself and building your own tools for the journey. As someone I admire wrote: I already know what it feels like to fail. I want to see what it's like to succeed.
Life happens to all of us. It's what we do about it that counts; how we handle the obstacles.
So tool up and come obstacle course racing with us Lifers, time for a little dirty fun.
It's summer time! We are outside in the sun and getting our vitamin D, or so we think. Often we slather on gobs of chemically laden sunblock to protect ourselves from getting burned. Our bodies do not absorb Vitamin D if the suns rays do not reach our skin. We are so paranoid about skin cancer or just burning from all the media hype we hear on TV. It certainly is a threat but can we have our sun and vitamin D without the burn or threat of skin cancer? Studies are showing that eating healthy, eating clean and green can reduce the chance of sunburn by keeping the skin hydrated and somewhat resistant to sunburn.

We've proclaimed HGTV host Matt Blashaw as the 'Pallet King' for his creative DIY pallet projects featured on DIY Network's 'Yard Crashers.'

(Oh, and when you watch the YouTube show, you'll get to take a peek at Matt in his kitchen, too.)
Matt is a licensed contractor and a licensed Realtor. His on-camera career started in 2006 when he participated in DIY Network's 'Stud Finder.'

Tick, tock, tick, tock...the countdown to the MLB Trade Deadline is fast approaching and the results have been a flurry of activity in both the rumor and franchise markets. The guys will be discussing the fact and fiction surrounding Cole Hamels, Yasiel Puig, Johnny Cueto...Chase Utley? Seriously? It's a "buyers' market" and maybe a "fire sale" all over the baseball landscape with just 3 days left!
On Sunday the MLB Hall of Fame recognized 4 new inductees and the guys are offering up their impressions of one of the most electric (and eclectic) "class" in the Hall's history. Plus, man-oh-man...Commissioner Rob Manfred recently commented on "hot-button" issues including: pushing back the trade deadline, how the league anticipates more Cuban inclusion (expansion?) and his "pending" meeting with Pete Rose.
Of course, a look at the (meaningless?) "power rankings" and the (meaningful !) scores/standings from Caleb's Sports Machine is on-deck; a surprise or 2, and the popular weekly Series Streak Challenge has to be updated...who is that in the Lead there? Yep. The boys are in scoring position, so call in your thoughts LIVE to 347-826-9964 beginning at 7 pm (edt) !

What can you do if your car a gas guzzler? As the price of petroleum continues to rise, many people are converting their cars and motorcycles to electric powered vehicles. Clean transportation enthusiast, Ben Nelson has developed a “Do It Yourself” series to teach people with minimal skills how to build their own electric car. Ben’s educational videos make converting your old gas guzzler easy regardless of whether you are a mechanic or your only experience has been with matchbox cars! Ben covers everything you need to know from battery selection, the motor, controller, adapter plate and other minor parts!
Ben is a natural born guru! While he had no formal training in electric vehicle design before beginning his first project, he quickly learned how to build “EV’s” (electronic vehicles) through a combination of hands-on work, informal apprenticeships, and enough library books to literally wear out his library card. He has presented his electric vehicles at many venues, including the Mother Earth Fairs and being the best attended presentation at the Midwest Renewable Energy Fair. He has also been a collaborator on the Open Revolt project, which makes low-cost electric vehicle motor controllers available to everyone.
In addition to his passion for clean transportation, Ben has also designed and built projects for renewable energy, water conservation, and alternative heating and cooking methods. He teaches these ideas and techniques to others through blogs, web videos, and instructional DVDs.
In this segment of The Clean Energy View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Ben Nelson about how to Build Your Own Electric Car and Motorcycle. Stay tuned!
Success begins from the bottom up. A successful community is made up of successful people. Citizens who want successful communiites must do what it takes to build success. Residents must build up their surroundings to inspire residents. Beauty must reak through every step the citizens take. When weeds, vacant lots, boarded up houses and pot holes engulf a community the adults are not inspired and the children are not being inspired. Every community need jobs for its citizens. Citizens should have jobs with disposable income. Healthcare should not be a luxury for only the wealthy. Residents need access to public and private transporation. Residents should own businesses. Major franchises in communities should hire residents. Safe streets is a community service, as is trash pick up, water and sewer services. Cities should assure every community access to recreational venues that are clean, well lit, and accessible to residents. These are necessary elements for building better communities that will lead to wealth development by its citizens.
