Remembering Roy Halladay & Veterans/Remembrance Day
This week on Krush Performance, I remember a great friend and teammate lost this week.
Two time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay was a true inspiration to all who knew him and for all who had the opportunity to see him perform. I spent a good number of years in the Blue Jay organization and Roy Halladay was there for every one of them. I’d like to go back and share with you some of my stories and experiences from my time with Roy.
He was a player who became an inspiration and there is a lot to learn from the great Roy Halladay. He was a family man, a baseball player, pitcher, and a fierce competitor. He was humble, deliberate, determined, and a player who’s approach and love for the game of baseball will transcend the test of time.

Also, Remembrance Day in Canada and Veterans Day in the United States is a very special time. In this episode of Krush Performance, we pay tribute to the great men and women who serve their countries in the name of freedom and democracy.
We are going to talk with David Cooper, former Navy Seal, Command Master Chief of the Naval Special Warfare Development Group and member of Seal Team Six, one of the most successful tactical military forces in history. We will talk with Dave about leadership, teamwork, and performance mindset and what goes into preparing the brave man and women for service in the military.
A very important episode of remembrance and respect.

“Born To Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, & The Greatest Race The World Has Never Seen”
In honor of everyone who ran, volunteered, watched, and organized the New York City Marathon*
On the Krush Performance Must Read List, “Born To Run” is one of the best books I have had the pleasure to read.
A brilliant mix of epic story telling and facilitating science that, in the end, makes you think twice about what you think you know about running and human performance.
Chris McDougall joins us to, not only talk about the book, but his quest for answers and the incredible adventure that ensued as he set out to find a tribe of the world’s greatest distance runners, the reclusive Tarahumara Indians in Mexico’s deadly Copper Canyons.
For centuries, they have honed and practiced techniques that not only have given them the superhuman talent to run hundreds of miles without rest but they have also developed an uncanny health and serenity which leaves them immune to the disease and illness that plagues modern society.
Download and hear the story from Chris as he travels from the super modern labs and technology of places like Harvard to some of the most treacherous terrain in the world to find these very special people and learn their secrets.
