Early this week I hit the road for a mini book tour in Northern California. I started off shooting a spot on NBC’s local news affiliate (KCRA) in Sacramento (video above). Between this and a stop at another local news station (this time in Reno, NV) I had the pleasure of giving my first official Primal Blueprint PowerPoint presentation to CrossFit Genesis and other Primal enthusiasts in Roseville, CA. The response was overwhelming. It was unbelievably inspiring to meet people one-on-one that are turning their lives around with the PB lifestyle behaviors. You see, I get emails every day from readers with success stories; we have dozens of them showcased here, and many others have been featured on MDA. I cherish every one of these as life affirming tales of personal triumph. But there is something altogether different to have someone approach you, tears welling up in their eyes, to tell you that you’ve changed their life. It was an incredible experience for which I am immensely grateful.
I want to thank everyone that came out. And special thanks goes out to Phil Mancini at CrossFit Genesis for being such a gracious host. I had a wonderful time and hope to be able to do it again sometime.
As The Primal Blueprint begins to make its way on to store shelves I’ll be holding more speeches and events like this. In fact, in early November I’ll be back on the road. This time to San Francisco to film a spot on ABC’s “View of the Bay”. I am planning on setting up another speech or two, so if you’re in the San Francisco area stay tuned. I’ll be providing updates in the next couple weeks.
Check back tomorrow for another reader-submitted Primal recipe. Have a great weekend, everyone, and Grok on!
