Portugal. One of the most breathtaking places this planet has to offer. City life. Countryside. And of course, a beach that many cannot rival. And today, was all about meeting her after only flirting with the waves of Portugal two years ago along the Camino De Santiago with my Dad. It began as a hesitant […]
Can you remember the last phone call you had with your Dad? Can you recall his voice, the stories he told and the life lessons he shared? Neither did Yogi Roth. Yogi Roth realized that he had never dealt with the emotions stemming from his father’s battle with prostate cancer. In a single moment, Yogi decided […]
We did it. Tonight at 9pm, we arrived in Santiago. After walking 200+ km, many convos, bread, cheese, ice cream for dayzzz and much wisdom from many along the Camino, we arrived. So epic. Need sleep, but more coming tomorrow. Just wait! LWOL.
Eight days in and I finally understand what Trent Dilfer is talking about. Over the last few years at Elite11, he has told our staff about how his injuries would pile up–each Sunday he would play, but Mondays would be extremely difficult to get out of bed. A week or so into the Camino, it […]
Along my travels I’ve been fortunate to witness many things, ranging from many wonders of the world to various well-known destinations, but throughout them all, the moments I recall most vividly are within the journey along the way.

Day 3. As we walk along the Camino towards Santiago we are guided by only yellow arrows. But, it is like they have mind of their own, playing games on you as if they are a long lost pal of Dr. Michael Gervais. For instance, when you have not seen a yellow arrow for over […]
Remember when you ate too much ice cream and your head was throbbing? Well, that is how my legs feel after two days along the Camino De Santiago-#ThrobCity…but like in 2-a-days at Pitt, during training camp in the Pac-12 conference or during a dunk contest, you love it and can’t wait to show up again […]
Chose to walk at night, because why not? We trekked along the river to a little surf town in Portugal. Today, we head north along the Atlantic, guided by the waves I used to see as a child, the taste of salt water that left a never-ending imprint on 10-year old’s taste buds and unexpected […]
Life is a pretty incredible thing. We fall on our face, we get up. We take risks and at times, get rewarded. We meet people serendipitously and sense emotions we never knew existed. At 31, I cannot say I am an expert in anything but I can sit here on the other side of the […]
Ever want to just get lost? Yogi Roth did and he invites you to join him as he walks the Camino De Santiago.
