  • What do you do with the pain

    Posted on March 31, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    I saw a quote this week and have spent a few runs thinking about it. “I don’t think you can become an outstanding runner unless you get a certain amount of enjoyment out of suffering.  You have to enjoy absorbing it, controlling it and — ultimately — overcoming it.”  Derek Clayton I really had to […]

    “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”  Pericles   I really appreciate this quote.  The people who are most satisfied and have joy in life seem to be others focused.  The most miserable people I know seem to be self focused. […]

  • Moving forward

    Posted on March 28, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    Each week I am just trying to continue to look for improvements in my training and write those down.  That is a big change for me so far this year.  I have a training log but have just always used it for the numbers and not really for progress.  After a speed work session it […]

  • Making the adjustment

    Posted on March 24, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    When I first started to run on a regular basis I had no real idea what to do.  I was really flying by the seat of my pants.  I remember my first goal was to run one mile.  It did not take long to reach that mark thankfully.  I thought about my next goal and […]

    The challenge in running is not to aim at doing the things no one else has done, but to keep doing things anyone could do – but most never will.  Joe Henderson

  • March 20th, 1971

    Posted on March 20, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    1971 could well have been the year that marked the start of the digital age when the Microprocessor was invented.  It saw the use of more and more of the transistor technology in use in things like hand held calculators which although are still very expensive over time will drop in price and increase in […]

    “It’s better to burn out than it is to rust.”  Neil Young   This is one of my favorite all time quotes.  Other ways I always like to think about are. Better to crash and burn than to sit on the launching pad accomplishing nothing. I would much rather go out swinging than having not […]

  • Disney’s New Race

    Posted on March 18, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    So I saw this week that Disney gave some more details on the marathon for 2012.  Back in January they indicated they would add a marathon relay to their weekend.  There were no details up at that time.  This week they gave more details on this.  Each person will run a half marathon.  One of […]

  • Race Report–Knight Light 5K

    Posted on March 17, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    I really enjoy running in the dark.  That was the single biggest reason I signed up for this race.  I also look forward to doing some 5K racing this year.  I think in the past 3-4 years I have done about 1 each year.  I think the extra speed work will help pay dividends on […]

    Whenever you have any bump in the road, whether it’s two weeks or two years, there are so many naysayers.  Let is fuel you.  Don’t take it personally.  Go out and prove them wrong.  Jenny Barringer
