Deca Cover JPG

It’s All About The DECA will take the endurance athlete junkie to understand this EXTREME endurance race that receives very little publicity and embraced by those who have achieved this amazing test of human endeavor.   In the multitude of checklists, toughest, most extreme endurance races and the world’s toughest endurance challenges; the DECA is the hidden gem most often overlooked because of the grass roots core group of athletes that live for this “extreme” event.   There are no major sponsors and no media outlet in the world reports this race very different than the normal, everyday known race.

 

The DECA (The Greek word meaning the number 10) is the ultimate race to test mental and physical strength in the three specific triathlon disciplines: 24 miles of swimming, 1,120 miles of biking and 262 miles of running (10 ultra distance triathlons). Remember this is a race and not a self-guided journey.

 

According to the author, Wayne’s DECA description in four words that describes the event and the athlete mindset characteristics are:

D – Discipline

E  – Endurance

C – Consistency

A – Attitude

This in-depth resource will take the reader “underground” through a journey to understand everything about this unique race for those who line up for the challenge.  The common theme of finishers in this book whose lives have changed (for both the good and bad) because of this event.  Wayne Kurtz along with the “family” of seasoned and exceptional DECA finishers will provide guidance on the following:

  • Race history and statistics, world records of both formats (Classic DECA or continuous event and 1 x10 format) illustrating finish rates
  • How to guarantee a finish and how to guarantee a DNF (Do Not Finish) and why specifically do athletes fail/finish
  • Sickness. Techniques for prevention and cures
  • Training plans (both formats) Classic and 1×10 DECA’s and out of the box approaches to finish this grueling event
  • Training plans are adjusted for the time management skills of juggling daily life of work and family
  • Checklists of what to take to the race
  • Budget analysis and music playlists
  • Crewing tips. Super crew stories
  • The author’s classic stories from behind the scenes while racing, including plenty of mistakes and learning lessons
  • Getting into the head of the DECA finisher with over 20 exceptional DECA athletes interviewed with specific ideas and
  • Mental Race strategies and learning how to do hundreds and hundreds of laps, while crossing the finish line again and again, and not stopping.
  • Typical course designs
  • Embracing suffering and fun simultaneously
  • Nutrition: Typical diets and race nutrition
  • The DECA finish line. No other race like it and why is it so unique

The Breath of Cuba by Cheri Shanti Lunn 

breathofcubacover-copy-002The Breath of Cuba is a timely cultural snapshot of a culture at the brink of change.  The story brings the flavor of Cuba alive and celebrates its rich cultural heritage in a way that few other books on Cuba will because of the intimate connection Cheri created with the people through coming there as a student of their music and culture.

This is a story about love.

Not the kind of love between a man and a woman.   Nor the kind of love between a mother and a child.    It’s not the kind of love that leaves you lost and abandoned.  No, not that kind of love that makes you wither and die.

But this is a story about love.

It’s a story that transcends human romance through the realm of the romance of  life.  It takes you into the heart of Cuba through one woman’s love of magic, music, community, culture and passion.

What Readers are Saying:

“I love it!  The way you write it just makes me want to continue to read more and more.  I can visualize what you are talking about from both my own experience being in Cuba and also from my exposure to different cultures and traveling.    Well done Cheri!”   Ewket Assefa

“I love the the fact that the story is not about getting the love from others but finding it within yourself.  I think it is provocatively sensual, and thought provoking.   It makes us all want to live a richer life, full of possibilities.”  Kristina Sutcliffe

Never Say CoverNever Say I Wish I Had by Wayne Kurtz

“IF YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY DON’T SAY THE WORDS ‘NO WAY, YOU’RE CRAZY’ ABOUT YOUR GOALS THEN YOU HAVE NOT MADE THEM BIG ENOUGH.”
– Wayne Kurtz
Each New Year, we become a nation fixated on making resolutions. Did you know that 45 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions? How many of that 45 percent do you suppose keep their resolutions? Ninety percent of that 45 percent will fail to keep their New Year’s resolutions. Since resolutions are no more than goals, we can infer from this statistic that 90 percent of those people do not know how to achieve goals. As a group, we obviously lack the skills necessary to achieve our goals – and this is where the new book Never Say “I Wish I Had”: 30 Days to Becoming Your Own
Chief Goals Officer can offer a solution. Readers interested in learning how to not only set but achieve every goal, whether big or small, every time will find Never Say “I Wish I Had” to be one of the most useful, hands-on tools available on the market. In this book, readers learn:
• Why goals are important
• How to create a goals “blueprint”
• Tips for effective time management and improved organizational skills
• How to use goal-setting tools
• Why “Goal Journaling” is important
• How others succeeded through case studies
Never Say “I Wish I Had” puts readers in charge of their goals achievement and guarantees that every reader who follows Wayne Kurtz’s tried-and-true goals program will become their own Chief Goals Officer in 30 days. This insightful, personal and revelatory program reinforces what many readers know already about the value and importance of goal setting and then shows them how to make all of their goals a reality.

One Caring and Courageous Choice at a Time by Dee DiGioia

CaringKids_bookCoverAs a speech -language therapist I saw too many of my students being negatively impacted as targets of bullying, and too many students standing by not knowing what to do in the elementary school where I taught. I have a dream that family by family, classroom by classroom, that we can help awaken the hearts and minds of children to discover the power within each one of us to stand up to bullying, while contributing to a more compassionate culture, one caring and courageous choice at a time.  The story “Which Team Will You Choose?”  (DVD included with the Guidebook) gives us a window to see what it’s like to be bullied, but more importantly opens the door to look within our hearts and minds to consider the choices we are making in our every day relationships with others. The Guidebook supplement “One Caring and Courageous Choice at a Time” was created to provide teachable points from the movie and can be an invaluable resource for parents, grand-parents, day-care providers, teachers, administrators, counselors, coaches, and so many other adults who work with children when they recognize the value in having regular discussions with children on emotional and physical safety life-skills based on research combining the best of what others are doing effectively to help break the cycle of bullying and abuse. The Guidebook is a great complement to any existing bullying prevention program in schools or a spark to get one going. The movie and guidebook help each of us feel that there are things within our control to help break the cycle of bullying to feel safer and happier in our homes, schools, and communities.
