Alec Hanson is hilarious.

If you saw some of the posts I’ve put up about Alec Hanson and his blog in the past, and if you’ve watched any of those videos, you’ve already see what this guy is all about. (there was this post when I posted an article he wrote, and then this one where we had a little back-and-forth dialogue on Self Worth. They’re both awesome, trust me.)

Well, a video he posted the other day, “Drive Time #97”… made me laugh out loud. You may have A.D.D. Alec, but you are also hilarious. I hope that some of the people who check out my blog go out and subscribe to your YouTube channel. There, I said it. Happy now? I just blatantly plugged your blog.

And now… I will call you out. MAKE AND POST THE “50-Subscriber Drive Time Lovefest” VIDEO ALREADY!
(and let’s go ahead and not mention “the word” on the blog again, please!)

Next discussion on Drive Time? I’ll give you a topic:

CrossFit Games Training
Most people will never make it past the first round of qualifiers for the CrossFit Games, yet thousands of people from around the World still train for it. For me, this is different from training to run a marathon (which I have done) or complete a triathlon (which I have also done) because in my opinion, most people set aside a specific training period for these events. I hear “I’ve got my 12-week Marathon plan” a lot more than I hear “I’ll start training for Sectionals in a few weeks.” For most people I know who want to, or who do, compete in CrossFit events, there is no off-season. Why are people devoting so much time, in and out of the gym (regular training, proper nutrition, etc), for something/an event that they’ll probably never win? I have my theories, but I’m interested in what other people think.

Discuss.

Not just you, Alec. Everyone chime in. Why do you think that is the case? Do you guys even agree with me?
