Well happy Independence Day weekend to both those north of the border in Canada and here in the U.S. Yes I realize the U.S. technically won't fall into the weekend, but I'm not one to get caught up technicalities, I mean have you met me? Everyone enjoy their food (you won't "fall off the wagon" if you enjoy your festive food intelligently I promise.
This week's random Insta post of the week isn't from me, but I wanted to highlight it because it pulled at both the mind and the heart for me, thanks Mike;

Look for these things if you want a good coach at ANYTHING in life.
