Are you satisfied

I was listening to the Work Play Love podcast this week and there was a question that Jesse and Lauren were answering about a highly driven athlete and how despite setting new PRs they thought they could always do better and didn’t enjoy their accomplishments. The response that Lauren gave really hit home with me.  […]

Not far and not fast

Distance: 1.33 miles Time: 19:01 (This was Friday mornings workout!) Almost every day this week I had the thoughts of how much fun it would be to run but when the rubber met the road I found some reason to not get up a few minutes earlier. Usually when I have these constant thoughts of […]

Looking back at 40

Earlier this week I left 40 and moved into 41.  As I do when I’m a bit bored or when I left my mind wander I started to reflect back on the last year.  The highs and the lows.  I will say that sometimes when I reflect back on past times I don’t always like […]

Random Banter – September 2nd 2018!

This week was one I’d not like to repeat.  Just felt blah.  Going to work on Monday I felt like it should be Friday already and the rest of the week didn’t get any better.  It was just a trudge thru the whole week.  I’ve been trying to figure out why this is, but so […]

2018 Antelope Dash Trail Race Recap

I knew going into this race it was going to suck. I just wasn’t sure how much it was going to suck. I arrived at a little after 7:30 and picked up my race packet. In all honesty I did the race for the T-shirt. The shirts are awesome and have a great design on […]

When you’re a kid, going to the doctor is pretty painless for the most part. At times you will get shots but that moment of pain passes pretty quickly. Things change when you reach middle age..or at least I believe it does. This is when you start to realize you are mortal and your body […]

Running

Running is a lot of work.  It’s not always fun.  Sometimes there’s pain and a lot of sucking air.  But it is also the opposite of these things.  It can be enjoyable.  It can be relaxing and meditative. I started running because the doctor said that I needed to get my aerobic activity in.  Five […]
