And so it begins… i’m not the greatest writer because my brain works too fast, despite all the punches to the brain, the ole noggin still goes… also i can’t spell for shit and my grammar was left long ago for more ambitious ventures like being good looking and strong(ish) … i’ll let this be truly day one… although my heavier training started last week… it wasn’t until this weekend that i felt alive in strongman again… like all journeys into sports, the body and mind take the biggest tolls..after Florida’s Strongest man in December my training stayed strong but i decided to venture into my favorite vices … heavy whiskey, cigars and rugby… after i got my fill my horizon filled with future comps, a growing gym, and a pack of future strongman who keep me on my toes (sooo many posts on that in the near future)

So this weekend i traveled to Iron House in Davent port FL to train with my crew and my coach… being under a watchful eye but more importantly, surrounded by those on a higher level, reignited a desire to not only compete harder but also to share it… i am no rookie to the sport but i continue to consider myself a sponge and forever learning… i want others to experience this because honestly, life is about not being a pussy and finding other non-pussies to surround yourself with… maybe you’re not in Miami or any where near Florida so maybe this will reach you… maybe it will piss you off because i can be a cocky f*ck sometimes.. maybe it will push you to come beat me in a comp… or it will just get you off the couch to go crush some iron… I’m not sure what it will do but i just know that this is a desire i need to fulfill for myself first… and i always do what i want…but i digress, i mention Me and i get lost in talking about myself… sigh

This weekly, and hopefully not bi-weekly, journey will include everything i can.. vids, pics, posts, the youtubes, the facebook, on-line articles etc… everything, anything and anyone that surrounds my journey for my second trip to nationals … this trip signifies a return to the main stage but also a growth not only in my life as a strongman, but as a coach and a business owner…not everyone has the life i have but i know, without a doubt, others have journeys and dreams to accomplish… it’s time others got to see my story, not only because im self involved (duh), but because (ugh grammar) i know others will be represented properly this time.. and i owe it to all those around me who help me, to tell not only my story but theres too… Hello i am Michael De La Pava, better known as MDL fucking P, and this is my legacy
