  • Step one- Make a plan

    Posted on May 31, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    All the way around for this race week I am trying to do things different for the 12 hour run.  I thought I would share it just in case it helps.  The big thing for me this weekend is to be “OnPurpose”.  In the past for almost every ultra I sometimes would make a plan […]

    It is amazing to me just how quick these things happen.  I took last week off while on vacation with the family and I feel great headed into the 12 hour race this weekend.  I have made quite a few changes to my race strategy this week.  From a race plan to race nutrition.  I am […]

  • Leaner of Lifter

    Posted on May 19, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    John Maxwell is one of favorites and I pretty much read anything he writes.  One of my favorite things he talks about is being a lifter or being a leaner.  Which are you? A lifter is someone who lifts up others.  It is someone we all love to be around.  After being around this person […]

    It doesn’t matter what your age is, if you put the time in, you’re going to get out what you put into it.  I strongly believe that.  I feel that good things will happen if you work hard.  Sheri Piers

    One of the things I like about this time of the year is playoff hockey.  I have always enjoyed hockey but playoff hockey is something that just fascinates me.  The word I use to best describe it is “Intensity”.  There is an intensity with hockey playoffs that just captivates me. One of the interesting things I […]

    This past weekend is a weekend I really look forward to.  In fact I probably enjoy this weekend of racing more than any I run.  The difference is that I don’t race.  My two boys ran in the Peachtree Jr.  My oldest son has a real love affair with this race.  I think he saw […]

    The glory of friendship is not in the outstreched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is in the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him.  Ralph Waldo Emerson

    It’s a long hard road and it’s going to have its bumps; there are going to be times when you fall and times when you don’t feel like going on anymore, times when you’re just crazy tired but it takes focusing on that one step you’re taking.  That’s what I’m trying to do with the […]

    My last couple of runs have felt like I have legs filled with iron so I know we are getting close to race day.  In fact this is a pretty big weekend for training.  I am doing the best I can to train race specific this weekend.  Throwing in a lot of miles and several […]

    I have been noticeably absent recently.  Many things to blame.  From a three-week stretch at work that stretched more and stressed more than I have ever been in my life.  There was also a computer crash thrown in the mix.  Lastly this past week I was dealing with some nagging injuries that have been following me […]
