awesome conversation. Jeremy is like one of my favorite people. I thought he was on the treadmill. But he’s he’s walking with his phone. And it turned into a long conversation about what he’s training for. And I’ll let you

Jeremy Weisz 3:15

when you were saying you were you were we’re in the middle conversation you were saying different stages of life and then Cullen came into your life.

Ed O’Keefe 3:22

Right? Okay, so so everyone understands this, right? So so we were talking about, like, he’s asking me, like he say, Hey, you work out a lot. And I said, Well, this last year, you know, I really slacked because I have a daughter that we’re we’re battling Lyme disease, we’re recovering. We’re healing. We’re healing. We’re working on languaging here in our household. And it also my son did really well with golf. So I I never was a golfer. So I never spent so much time on a golf course before. So I went from being like, really physically fit to like, and I was joking with him saying, Hey, I have the golf party going on right now. Which means I’m lean, and I am not I have no muscle like I feel weaker than I’ve been in like six years. Maybe even longer, like me like 10 years. And you know, when I used to drink beer and stuff like that, but um, Jeremy made a comment. And I think this is really important because a lot of people falsely stop themselves from reaching physical and doing challenges because of this comment, which is like, well, you have done this before, so it’s easy for you. And it’s harder for me now. I’m guilty of this. So let me let me share my story because because I because I really want to do this rant about how there’s no shame and like if you modify things to achieve whatever you are your peak potential. That’s just as I always think like see one things I think about CrossFit. That’s funny is like, if we do a workout together, and I finished at seven minutes and you finish it 11 minutes. In some ways, I feel like I’m cheating because I know there’s work capacity and blah, blah, blah, experts talk. I always feel like the people that are working towards the skills which is why they’re taking longer sometimes maybe it’s out of they’re out of shape. That’s okay too. But it’s like they’re working harder than I did. And in some ways I feel like you almost like once you’re finished, you’re wide recover and then your job to keep going or support people. But one of the experiences I wanted to share with Jeremy was Conan O’Brien who counted Brian is pretty well known. He’s, I met him. I think he’s got like four or five world records. Now he pulled us He’s the first person to ever pull an unmanned, no unsupported sled he was unsupported across I think there’s an archive chairman, you know this because I, I had
