    Posted on May 27, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    Each week this update gets closer and closer and always seems to make me a little nervous.  We are 7 weeks away from the Lone Ranger Ultra.  I am also 5 weeks away from the Peachtree Road Race which does not make me nervous but very excited.  The PRR is always a highlight of my […]

  • A brand new runner

    Posted on May 24, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    Over the past few years I have always been happy to watch people I know get motivated to run.  It really comes down to the fact that I can’t get anyone to run.  Hopefully I provide others with enough of a desire to get moving and be healthier but it is all up to them to […]

  • Training update 5/20

    Posted on May 20, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    This past weekend I was in North Carolina at a training certification and I had the chance to run at Davidson College on their cross-country trails.  It was a great run.  The trail was in perfect condition with rolling hills through the woods.  It was as enjoyable of a run that I have had in a while.  […]

    “The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.  For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”  M. Scott Peck

    I am sure you have heard the saying, “How do you make yourself look younger?  Hang around with people older than you.”  Though that is funny it really does not help you much.  One of the things I really enjoy doing is spending time and associating with those who are stronger and better than I […]

    “Win/Win is a frame of mind and heart that constantly seeks mutual benefit in all human interactions… Win/Win is based on the paradigm that there is plenty for everybody, that one person’s success is not achieved at the expense of exclusion of the success of others.” Stephen R. Covey

  • A Student at heart

    Posted on May 12, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    This past weekend I had the chance to see my sister graduate with a Specialist Degree.  (Congrats again Sis, very proud of you)  What really struck me was our family and the desire to remain students after so many years.  Now normally my family would pick themselves up off the floor right now from laughing so […]

  • A change of plans

    Posted on May 9, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    It has been a tough week for getting in runs.  A few long days of work, time on your feet and loss of sleep can make you change your training plan for a weekend.  I did not feel like the 4.5 hour run was the best option this weekend.  I went ahead and switched my […]
