David Goggins’ fiancé reveals what it’s like to live with him

Former US Navy Seal and ultramarathon runner David Goggins is an athlete through and through — but it’s not always easy living with one of the world’s most fit individuals, as told by his fiancé in a humorous Instagram post.

Goggins’ athletic pursuits are nothing to sniff at: the US Air Force veteran boasts a resume that includes being a everything from a triathlete to an ultra-distance cyclist, marathon runner, and more.

He’s also a motivational speaker and author, and has even published his own memoir, a self-help title called “Can’t Hurt Me.”

Considering his massive accomplishments and celebrity status as a top-tier athlete, it doesn’t come as a huge surprise to fans that he’s a busy man — but it’s not his packed lifestyle that has supporters shocked on social media.

Goggins’ fiancé, Jennifer Kish, posted a photo of her betrothed’s feet to Instagram on September 22, which are definitely worthy of a content warning.

The man’s toes are bunion city, completely cracked and bruised to high heaven — but Kish isn’t too concerned with the state of his literal athlete’s foot.

In her post, Kish explains that the state of Goggins’ feet is due to his incredible dedication to fitness, claiming that his “mind-numbing, monotonous grind” includes running “no less than 10 miles each day, gym work, and at least two hours of stretching.”

(WARNING: You’re about to see some seriously gross feet.)

It takes a special to Live with me. Repost from @kishme04 • People assume a lot about my fiancé @davidgoggins & always ask me what is it REALLY like to live with him? Well, here goes….. First, that picture… can you imagine what he has done to have feet that look like that? His daily routine is a mind-numbing, monotonous grind EVERY SINGLE DAY! No matter the weather, travel schedule, business obligations, etc., I know there are certain things that are a given in EVERY 24-hour period- running no less than 10 miles each day, gym work, and at least 2 hours of stretching. At a minimum, that accounts for 4 hours each day but in reality is usually more like 6 hours as the 2-hour stretch often runs closer to 3 and the runs are 2 hours min each day. The alarm is set for the same time everyday, the protein drink is the exact same everyday, the journaling each night, etc. The monotony is REAL! If it weren’t for me, I am not sure David would even know what is happening in the world let alone on social media. Actually, I am not sure he even knows how to access social media on his Android! He rarely has his phone which leads to countless missed calls and unread texts. One guess who they reach out to trying to find him & confirm he is still alive??!! I don’t think he is even remotely impressed when I tell him how many weeks his life story has been sitting on the bestseller lists. Holidays come and go as if they are any other day on the calendar. The things that move or excite most people don’t seem to even register or matter to him yet he is more content and has more peace in his life than anyone else I know. He wants for nothing and doesn’t spend time worrying about what other people think about him. While the lack of excitement can be off-putting to some, I know it is becuz he is still working everyday to find more of & better himself. It is a never-ending journey for him & exhausting to watch from the sidelines. To know that there is no day off- EVER… what a mind fuck! He goes at it alone, day after day, week after week, etc. While it sounds horribly boring and mundane to most, he embraces it! Few can understand or appreciate the discipline & sacrifice it takes.

“The alarm is set for the same time everyday, the protein drink is the exact same everyday, the journaling each night, etc.,” she continued. “The monotony is REAL!”

“I don’t think he is even remotely impressed when I tell him how many weeks his life story has been sitting on the bestseller lists,” she added. “…The things that move or excite most people don’t seem to even register or matter to him, yet he is more content and has more peace in his life than anyone else I know. He wants for nothing and doesn’t spend time worrying about what other people think about him.”

While Goggins jokingly claimed that it “takes a special [kind]” to live with him, it seems that Kris truly understands the neverending grind of her fiance — making for a goals-worthy pairing that just about anyone can look up to.

Popular music streamer and DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has had his Twitch account banned on October 27, with the reason still unknown.

In a shock move, Twitch has suspended popular musician Herman Li from streaming on the platform, which he uses to provide insight into the life of professional musicians, as well as to shred his guitar like the metal God that he is.

Known for being the lead guitarist of Grammy-winning heavy rock group DragonForce – the masterminds behind the infamous ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ that dominated every Guitar Hero players’ childhood, Li has been praised over the years for his musical talents.

The guitarist has become somewhat of an icon on the platform, so it shocked fans to see his channel was no longer available.

Li has become not only a DragonForce icon, but a Twitch one too.

Is this a DMCA ban?

At the time of writing, the reason for Li’s ban is unknown. Twitch does not comment on moderation decisions as a matter of privacy.

Speculation though, is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.

In April, Li was livid as Universal muted his music on YouTube.

Neither Li nor Twitch have elaborated on why the ban has taken place. No matter the reason though, this news comes will come as a shock to both Li and his fans, especially when he addressed the Twitch ban situation directly on stream back in June, reassuring other streamers that using his band’s music would not result in a DMCA strike.

Li stated that: “We know all these crazy things are happening on Twitch, people getting banned, people getting taken down, DMCA, I can tell you, you can play any song from the latest DragonForce album, Extreme Power Metal, and you will not get a strike. I assure you, you will be ok. Because we are very good friends with our people from the record label, who also love Twitch, so you will not have a problem.”

We will update this story if more details on the reason behind Li’s suspension become clear.
