    I plan to put together some thoughts from the race last week but my good friend Joe had a great suggestion as he always does.  I thought you would enjoy hearing about the race from my brothers point of view.  It was as much fun as I have had running a race and I loved […]

    Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it.  The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.  T. Alan Armstrong

    Below is his announcement of his retirement.  I really admire Haile.  The most recent word out of his camp is that maybe he will reconsider.  I am hoping that once we gets healthy again he will try once more.  We can only hope to see at least one my race out of Haile.

    Posted on November 23, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    I was reading an article this week about gratitude and a couple of things stood out to me in the article.  Not that this is some great discovery but it is always helpful to hear.

    Posted on November 22, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    We have a lot of things in common.  We also have a lot of areas that we are nothing alike. – We don’t usually smile at the camera. – We only know one way to do things (all or nothing) I have some good memories of running with my brother.  From running around Stone Mountain, […]

    I will be leaving for the Disney World Half Marathon in just 7 short weeks!  That is hard to believe.  Our team has been working hard in training, racing and raising funds for the fight against breast cancer.  I really want to make sure I am training hard and doing the best I can for […]

    Posted on November 13, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    I am headed down to run the soldier marathon today.  Usually when I run these races I think a lot about others and how they have impacted me.  Most every marathon I think about my Grandmother who passed away over 11 years ago this fall.  Any toughness I have I think I got it from […]
