Summary

“. . . open your eyes to what is possible.” —Chris Ward, host of Like a Bigfoot podcast
  
Run 200 miles? “How do you even prepare for something like that? What’s it even like? And what is wrong with you?” Ultra-marathons have become extremely popular over the last decade with events previously having only a handful of participants to now selling out and some having to go to a lottery system. The popularity of 50Ks, 50 milers, 100Ks, and 100 milers have shown that the human body is capable of astonishing physical and mental feats. Join ultra-marathon author Ryan Chukuske as he describes what it’s like to take on the Bigfoot 200. Follow along as he provides a narrative tale of competitors, crews, pacers, volunteers, and race director Candice Burt. From workout plans prior to the event, tales of awesomeness during the challenge, struggles, physical and mental breakdowns, hallucinations, the Bigfoot 200 changes the lives of all involved.

    Every piece of hardware that makes up a computer must work together in synchronicity for the computer to operate, and if you want to avoid making frequent runs to the Apple store, they must be maintained too. Likewise, every muscle, bone, tendon, and ligament in your body works together synchronistically with every shot you make and every serve you take on the tennis court. When your body is well maintained and you are in complete control, you stand to win more often than not. If you want to be successful as a professional tennis player, you must be healthy and fit. Your body must be nurtured and maintained. You must train properly, avoid injury, and understand the mechanics of every shot you make. This book is the only comprehensive source of all the physical skills required to compete as a professional tennis player. If you, your child, or your students are ready to stop taking risks when it comes to health and well-being and instead have the best shot at making it pro, then this book is for you.

    I have tried to show people of all ages the benefits of tennis.  It is a spring board to almost any other sport or activity one may pursue.  I started competing in a wide range of sports at an early age.  Tennis combines the best for all sports.  The movement on the court is up, back, side to side, reaching and the use of both hands.  This also includes strategy and endurance.  In singles one is out there by themselves and the result comes based upon how much the individual works.  Nothing worthwhile comes easy.
     
    It is this experience combined with my love of teaching that I want to get across to the reader.   Tennis is a great life lesson but should be fun.  It also can be played by all ages, regardless of skill or ailments.  There are too many things that we have to do, tennis should not be one of them.   
     
    Enjoy the game.
