10 miles, roughed me up!

10 miles, roughed me up!

I am a positive person. Today I had a big run and thought my positive attitude would rock me through. 

I ran this distance last week and loved it. Today rocked me big time. I made it through. My pace was off. I cramped up later. I had enough water. A difficult experience for sure. 

Good news, it happens. 

I will work forward. A chariot depends on me. 

I will be there.

I will finish.

Always do. Thankfully :)

Oh how I missed you!

Oh how I missed you!

Long runs, oh how I have missed you! Just a few weeks ago, I started cranking up a few long runs. Here is what I have noticed/missed:

  • it pushes you past a limit
  • it can be uncomfortable, until you are finished:)
  • Playlists are awesome
  • you find a natural rhythm 
  • it requires planning (hydration, fuel, timing)
  • it's so much fun!

A friend sent this to me earlier today and I just watched it tonight. I love how the Ball State team executed this, how cool. It's great for the player, great for their program and just a wonderful story.

The video is 3.5 minutes long and it worth it. At the end, his Dad says "thank your coaches for how they work with you".

How refreshing is that to hear? The best part...the player is learning how to be gracious. His mother and father reinforced it. LOVE. LOVE.

Well done Seger family. I love your work ethic, dedication and family values.

Watch this feel good story here.

Charity Miles +Jeff's inspiration!

Charity Miles +Jeff's inspiration!

My Dad taught me compassion for those in need, in particular people who were homeless. He talked to me about how circumstances happen, but they deserve a break and respect. With love and compassion, it can help them through.

My wife and I have a good friend, Jeff Lenhart. He inspires me to be better. I love the fact that he is an advocate for the homeless. He is an amazing person and the world is a better place because of him:) I love his new ride, kindness 2!

For a long time, I have run for charity. It makes me feel good, while investing in my own health. During training, I always use the charity miles app. For June and July, I am dedicating my running time to Back on My Feet. They help the homeless be empowered to get back on their feet. I first learned of this great organization through Runner's World. 

So far my miles have paid Back on My Feet $30 for June (120 miles). All I have to do is run, the sponsors pay the charities. I will post a thank you next week to them. 

For now, thanks Jeff! You rock!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

On this day, let's remember our freedom and the many who sacrificed the most for us. Also, to remember our "why". 

America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.
