Watch new pussy cat who always. Folks I'm having a fun and important conversation. I like all my conversations to be fun and important with Tom Jones. He's an extreme athlete marine veteran doing something right now that is amazing. He is running across most of the country a marathon a day to draw attention to the ideas of patriotism, faith, and specifically united we pledge dot org, building a replica of this American village that's in montevallo, Alabama. They want to do that in Utah, which is where he's going to end up. So Tom, I got to ask you, when you're running, at what pace do you run so that this is possible? Because I mean, I just really, again, can hardly imagine to go 26 miles in a day, and then to do it the next day and the next day, how do you, what have you settled into at this point that makes this possible for you? Is 26.2 miles a day and I can tell you one thing that was the last 6.2 miles, those are the ones that kick your butt. So what I've settled into is a piece of a right around four to 5 miles an hour. I mean, it's just unbelievable to me that you are able to do this. And so you're doing this every day and you're about halfway from montevallo, Alabama to this place in Utah. So where does that put you now in Texas? Yeah, that puts me in Arlington, Texas. So we're approaching halfway through it. And so I think in two days, we'll have been at this 30 days. We're going to be doing 76 of them in a row. This time, you know, last time I did this, I did a 121 marathons in a row, but that was back in 2000. And my piece was much faster than it is now, although, you know, it's just a matter of being quit proof, man. It's a matter of being what? Quit proof. Quid proof. Plug for the website, quit proof, dot com. Well, I just love.

"Beautiful. Now, I want to ask you, so you're saying that united we pledge already has something called the American village in montevallo, Alabama, because I had not heard about this till today. No, I know what I'm saying is that Montevideo Alabama is an American village. And the united we pledge has partnered with a company called balance of nature and they've procured about 40 acres of land in Utah that they're going to recreate an American village there. That's what I'm saying. So there is an American village in Alabama already. Yes. But I had not heard about this. I want to go to montevallo, Alabama now that I've literally not heard about this. And you should. I hadn't heard about it either until they brought it up, and then when they brought it up to me and they came up with this idea of me running from Montevideo, Alabama to saint George Utah to break around for this thing. You know, I think that we have a whole mind body, right? You have your gut, you have your heart, you have your head, and all three have brain cells. My gut just goes, go for it. My heart was like, oh, you got to do this. And then my mind just said, yeah, it's a resounding yes. This is the right time, the right place, and the right thing. So then when I visited montevallo, Alabama and saw with my own two eyes, the impact that this American village had with these kids, it was just like, oh man, let's get going. Where's montevallo, Alabama? Is that near any of the big cities in Alabama? It's Montevideo, Alabama is near what is it? Montgomery. Birmingham. Because I had not heard of the American village in Alabama. So I'm thrilled about this. I want to visit it. I've been to colonial Williamsburg. Obviously, anything like this where you can especially get young people to see this, to experience this. It's just beautiful. It's just beautiful. It does something that's vital, so I'm thrilled that they're wanting to do this in Utah. And you said balance of nature, this is the product that they're involved in this as well. Correct. The CEO of balance of nature, the owner, came up with this great idea united we pledge. And so it's his brainchild. And so they're the ones that are behind it and they separated it out as a nonprofit. So the balance of nature is a fruit and vegetable supplement that I ran across about a year and a half ago and liked it so much. I called them on the phone and I'm like, hey, I get stuff thrown at me all day every day, half of it I won't take. The other half of it doesn't do much, but after taking this for a few months, I think you guys got something here. And then so the relationship developed from there. I take bounds in nature every day. It's kind of a new thing for me, so I'm glad to know that they're involved in this united we pledge dot org. So, and what is your website quit proof dot com? What is that? So I do mental strength and resilience coaching for other professional athletes, corporate executives, and just basically anybody that wants it. With stone tools and carving knives, I built quite a palace. And I've learned a lot along the way. And so I'm able to take that experience and I'm able to help other people get mentally stronger and become more resilient. And quitting is to have it like anything to have it. The first time you quit, you kick yourself in the pants and you're like, oh, gosh, we're not going to do that again. Next time you quit, it gets a little easier. Next time you quit it gets a little easier. Next time you quit, now all of a sudden you're habitual quitter. So I've come up with a lot of different ways to help people become, like I said, mentally stronger and more resilient. And quit things less. Well, people want to know too, you know, when you're running you and I are about the same age. I never felt the effects of aging until the last few years and suddenly there are aches and things and you realize, wow, running a marathon or doing something like that, suddenly that's the problem. It's not just the normal problem, but so you have remained just extremely fit for decades and you're doing stuff that most people just can't imagine. What is your advice to people in terms of exercise and that kind of thing is clearly there's a connection to the mind and to the soul and the body. Between them. There's connection or among them. 100% Eric and the thing is is that the mind controls everything. So the secret to becoming successful is to understand this. You become your thoughts. So be careful about what you think about, right? Because what you think about, you know, that becomes your actions. Be careful of your actions because your actions, those become your habits. And be careful of your habits because your habits, they're the compass that drives your entire life. So be careful of your thoughts and think positive things because I can tell you one thing, the person that you listen to the most is you. You know? Wow. So tell yourself good things. Tell yourself strong things. You know, that's right. We're going to go to a break final segment coming up with Tom Jones, powerful stuff, folks. We'll be.

God says we're infinitely valuable that he died for us. We're made in his image. When you believe that your first of all, you're believing truth, but also you're allowing yourself to be in tune with what is right and true. But we have the freedom to say negative, destructive things to ourselves, just like we have the freedom to be destructive with our own with our physical health..

But we have the freedom to say negative, destructive things to ourselves, just like we have the freedom to be destructive with our own with our physical health. And it's so interesting to me that you link this, that you link the two. Yeah. Well, and I can also tell you this. So I found out very early in my life that there's two roles, I believe that we can play in our lives. We can either play the role of the victim. Or we can play the role of the big door, right? And that is really what it boils down to. So what kind of dialog are you going to have with yourself? Are you going to have the victim mentality and tell yourself that, oh, because the circumstances, I couldn't do this. I couldn't do that. I couldn't do the other thing. Are you going to take the victorious role, the role of the Victor and say, you know what? We live in the greatest country on the planet and this country allows us to do anything that we want to do. All we got to do is roll our sleeves up and get to it. You know? And think the right kind of thoughts. Again, your thoughts become your actions, your actions become your habits. Your habits are what drives you through life. Do you have healthy habits? Do you have unhealthy habits? You know, be nice to yourself for goodness sake. Yeah. And I'll tell you what fascinates me, really, is like, you know that that works. You know that this is right. But there are people that they've got all these reasons not to do it. And to them, I would simply say, okay, whatever, but here's the issue. It is God's will for you to think those positive thoughts. It is God's will for you to have his opinion of you. Not your own opinion or the negative opinion of somebody who raised you or it is God's will that you hear what he has to say about you and that you agree with that. And I think if you don't believe in God, you could just say, well, I can do whatever I want. I can just destroy myself. But if you realize like, no, he wants to bless you. He wants you to be victorious. He wants to use you for his purposes. That's his will. And it's beautiful for me just to see you letting him use you for his purposes to bring attention to the greatness of this nation, it's the greatness to the great ideas of freedom and this kind of thing. If there's anybody who would have excuses, you would have excuses growing up in the foster system, abused. I mean, but you choose to believe what is true over those other voices. From your lips to God's ears. And I mean that because we are the divine creations of God, right? And that's what we are. We are part of God. And all we got to do is look in the mirror and we got to embrace that and we got to grab the wheel and we got to drive, right? The minds like this big D 9 dirt mover with a little guy on top, driving it. So, you know, what are you going to do? Let go of the wheel and let that thing run into the ditch. Are you going to keep both hands on the wheel of that incredible machine and drive it in the right direction? I just love it. So your website is quit proof dot com. Quit proof QU IT proof dot com. And united we pledge people can find out more at united we pledge dot org. Tom Jones, we are just proud of you and glad to get to know you. I'm glad my audience gets to know you. And we're just excited that you're doing all of this. Is absolutely wonderful. Look forward to having you back another time. Look forward to meeting you in person, maybe running with you sometime. God bless you. Tom Jones, thank you so much. Yeah, and thank you, Eric, for having me on because this is a team thing, right? Because without people like you, the word can't get out. So I consider a you and I to be a team. And I'm really, really proud to know you and be part of your team. And I can't thank you and your listeners enough. And we're raising money to build this American village, so if they go on United, we pledge dot org, consider making a donation to make this place happen because I tell you one thing, freedom, matters. God bless you, thank you..

"I'm not making this up. He's my guest right now. Tom Jones, welcome to the Erik metaxas show. Hey Eric, thanks for having me on. Look, I want to ask you so many questions. First of all, the principal reason I'm having you on is because you are going to be doing something fairly shortly along the lines you just described. What is this thing that you're going to be doing soon? Actually, I'm almost right in the middle of it. I've run 30 back to back marathons as we speak in the middle of it now. Yes, yes, we left April 19th from montevallo, Alabama, and I've been running a marathon a day every day since then, including today. A marathon a day, okay, that's not something I've ever done, even for a single day. So what you're doing right now, it's affiliated with united we pledge. What is united we pledge? Because I know your goal is to draw awareness to the constitution to American freedom. What is united we pledge? The united we pledge is a nonprofit organization and what they're doing is they're building a very special and magical place called the American village. And the American village is a place that has recreations exact replica recreations of buildings that were instrumental in the constitution and the Revolutionary War. And they also have people that play the parts of people that were instrumental in that time, like George Washington, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, Paul Revere's wife, men and women, they have colonial soldiers. And what they do is they bring in families and in particular kids, and they let them step onto the stage of American history and become part of the story. So it's a very, very impactful experience as far as history goes.

"I'm not making this up. He's my guest right now. Tom Jones, welcome to the Erik metaxas show. Hey Eric, thanks for having me on. Look, I want to ask you so many questions. First of all, the principal reason I'm having you on is because you are going to be doing something fairly shortly along the lines you just described. What is this thing that you're going to be doing soon? Actually, I'm almost right in the middle of it. I've run 30 back to back marathons as we speak in the middle of it now. Yes, yes, we left April 19th from montevallo, Alabama, and I've been running a marathon a day every day since then, including today. A marathon a day, okay, that's not something I've ever done, even for a single day. So what you're doing right now, it's affiliated with united we pledge. What is united we pledge? Because I know your goal is to draw awareness to the constitution to American freedom. What is united we pledge? The united we pledge is a nonprofit organization and what they're doing is they're building a very special and magical place called the American village. And the American village is a place that has recreations exact replica recreations of buildings that were instrumental in the constitution and the Revolutionary War. And they also have people that play the parts of people that were instrumental in that time, like George Washington, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, Paul Revere's wife, men and women, they have colonial soldiers. And what they do is they bring in families and in particular kids, and they let them step onto the stage of American history and become part of the story. So it's a very, very impactful experience as far as history goes.

"That the overall claim the broad claim of private Ryan was that, oh, this is the most realistic thing that has ever been presented in movies. And private Ryan is so full of historical inaccuracies and distortions. And I can't even sit through it anymore. So even the projects that serve it up to us as here is a perfect example of authenticity. They aren't there. I remember that was the big acclaim that came with platoon when it premiered. And it won the academy or for best picture. And ever since then, people have treated platoon like it was a documentary and it was not that at all. At the end of the series, we did get a brief explanation of text that explains what happened to each of the main characters after the war. Eugene sledge earned a PhD wrote a memoir called with the old breed that was used in the creation of the series. Bob lucky marries his sweetheart vari color and also wrote a memoir called helmet for my pillow that was used for the creation of the series as well. John basilone was posthumously awarded the navy cross as you mentioned earlier and a Purple Heart for his actions on Iwo Jima, Lena found out that her husband died on her 32nd birthday. And despite only being made for 7 months, she never remarried. That's all that true? It is all true. Yeah. Sledge pot at a little liberal arts college in central Alabama. And I suppose now this is a good time as any dimension it, but I'm in Alabama. And I went to the university of Alabama. I started their 1987, and when I was there, I was dating a girl who was from Coleman, Alabama. And she attended montevallo college, which is the school where Eugene B sledge told. And if you don't mind me, I'll make it quick and painless, but it's too hilarious for me not to tell the story. I would drive from where the university is in Tuscaloosa Alabama to see her every weekend at montevallo. And she was a science major and over and over again on my visits there. She was saying like, you know what? You should meet my biology professor. You should meet doctor sledge. And I was like, why? And she was like, well, because she knew I was a history major. She knew I was interested in World War II history. And she said, yeah, he was in the war. And I was like, oh, really? I was like, what did he do? And I didn't know he was. And the book was out, but I didn't know..

You know, it's, uh, finding the plants, Uh and then making sure we've got him on hand where we get ready to do the job. We can just dive right in there and get it done. Yeah, no. Earlier this year in spring, we saw this coming and A lot of the lot of the landscape Jaws. We went ahead and pulled plants out and set them off to the side and rope them off. That way. We made sure that we have them, but, um, you know, we're y'all are bending over backwards, Chris. Go and driving all over the place, making sure that we get the right plants and our customers have been super flexible and super patient, you know, with everything as well, because I mean before now, gosh, how much we had so much rain. This spring and the summer and it was just it was spaced out every few days. It seems like that we were getting rain, and so that would throw off. You know, jobs a little bit, And I know that you'll have to work through some less than ideal conditions a time or two this year to make sure that we get things done, but between y'all really pushing and busting y'all's butts and our customers being patient man. It's been It's been a great year, and we appreciate everybody and all their patients and and, uh, and their loyalty, you know, because when I know Chris Keith, when you all come in to do the job, you are going to make sure that it's done right. And in the end, it turns out better for everybody. Yeah, where I was going earlier. Chris. We're about to do some work for Mr Hanson. He's down and Patent Chapel Road.

He's got a He's got kind of a swag down in his in his get a long driveway that goes up to his house, and there's a deal right in the bottom of it. Um, that he's wanting an extra parking area down there. I think they have a lot of get together and stuff like that. So We're gonna go in there and scratch out. A spot 30 by 30 and put them another, You know, just a gravel parking area down that area and then new shrubs all the way around the house. Uh, one's own a drip. For now, we gave them a price to do a bunch more work. Ah, but You know, it's it's a whole lot of work, and we're gonna hunt. You know he's going to have to hit it in phases, You know, just kinda as money allows. You know some of the time I say you got to do it, right? Yeah, that's it, but We're gonna Redo all of us shrubs and everything clean all that stuff up. We took him on as a long care, actually, uh What What threw me off as we're supposed to be doing something with the dirt. There was, you know in that area that 30 by 30 spot, you know, we're taking out three inches of topsoil or just you know, dirt down in that bottom, and we needed somewhere to put it only original bid, it said. We're going to take it up in the backyard and we're gonna put in holes and smooth it out because you know the backyards kind of rough, but we also gave him a process side the backyard and we're not doing that. Yeah. So I didn't want to take all this dirt in the spread it all over his yard up there And then let's not go back in there and put something on it. So I was just had a n called homeowner and say, Hey, look, you know what do you want to do with this dirt? Kind of things that we've got a game plan we get there. I can say hey, It goes right here. So She said. Yeah, we just took them on his lawn care customer. Now is that their house and I'm looking at the grass and I'm like this is one of those yards. That Chris takes on, you know every now and then, and I had to come back to it about three years later. It's like, Wow, because when I pull up I'm like I wouldn't. I wouldn't imagine it. Being treated. Course We just took it. We just took it on. Um But I pulled up and I said Hey, Man, This is there's not much grass here, and I've done this bunch times. Some of them. I'm patting Chris on the back telling you pull up and I'm lying. I cannot even see experiencing of if there's very Bermuda here. It's like to, you know. And I'm all I'm seeing is crab grass, and I'm a and she said, No, he just took it on. Trust me, Okay, alright. But that's the yard. I pulled back up on like in 2023. They've got like a pristine Bermuda yard and Chris like I told you, so. I got this every time transforming. When we get back from the break, I'll tell you about a guy over and moody.
