Q) If you peeled back a few layers, what would we learn about Jeff? He’s the only person on the planet that publicly claims balance is NOT a myth.

Since his college-aged son was born, Jeff starts every day on his knees. Jeff has overcome alcohol addiction, and, an invisible disability. He’s been a runner since 7th grade; at 50, Jeff represented Team USA in Finland at the 2009 Masters Track & Field World Championships in the 400-meters. He did a 1982 solo bicycle ride across America as well as took a three-week bicycle honeymoon a couple years later, with only $200 cash. He’s never owned a new car. Jeff is the unofficial world-record holder for most blog posts by a single author, 22k.
