While I'm gazing out my window at a snow-covered street, my mind is racing with thoughts of everything that needs to be done or gathered before I head to San Diego at the end of the week.
I'll be spending some time at the Active offices, working with the Content and Active Trainer teams. I'm looking to improve what I currently offer and for new ideas. I want continuous improvement ideas. Of course, I'm looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
In addition to work at the Active offices, I will have at least two field trips of sorts. On Saturday night I'll attend the Endurance Sports Awards as a guest of the Active Network. This is a fun function held after public hours at Sea World. I'll aim to post some photos.
Early next week, I have an opportunity to visit with the Navy SEAL One Unit based in San Diego. I had an opportunity to do some consulting for Commander Keith Davids last year when he was preparing for the Hawaiian Ironman. He told me if I was ever in San Diego I was welcome to pay the SEAL Team a visit. I took him up on that invitation.
The U.S. Navy Sea, Air and Land Special Operation Forces (commonly known as the Navy SEALs) go through what some consider the toughest military training in the world. I will get a small glimpse into the training and I'll meet some of the people that conduct this world-class training in Coronado, California. I can hardly wait.
