    “In the 30 years I’ve been a runner I’ve run more than 150,000 miles.  Still some of the hardest steps I take are those first few getting out the door for daily runs.” Bill Rodgers

  • Starting Fresh

    Posted on June 26, 2009 by in Uncategorized

    We are half way through the year now.  How are you doing with your goals?  I love the start of a new month, or quarter as it allows you to get a fresh start.  As we are halfway through the year this is a great time to assess where you are at physically.  Whether you […]

  • Training update for 6/23

    Posted on June 24, 2009 by in Uncategorized

    Training is going well so far this week.  Just over a week left for the Peachtree and there will be the final speedwork left this week.  I caught a break on Monday with the weather.  I ran in the rain but I also ran with the temp in the 70’s.  I will trade rain for […]

    The dictionary says, to inspire with courage, spirit or hope.  Reading that gives me a different idea of what encouragement really means.  I do love to encourage others and see others accomplish the things they thought were difficult or even impossible.  When I have been encouraged I feel like they have provided me with the […]

  • Picking your battle

    Posted on June 18, 2009 by in Uncategorized

    I tend to be pretty competetive so when a challenge is laid out in front of me I usually ignore the problems that go along with it and go all out.  I started to do that this week as someone laid out a 20 day challenge of running the most miles with a group of runners […]

    “You will only become what you are becoming right now”.  From, “Developing the Leader Within You” by Dr. John C. Maxwell. I was told once that, what you eat and what you do will show up in the next ten years.  Two ways to look at.  1- You might be eating great and training hard […]
