Starting Over – learning to run again.

Starting Over – learning to run again.

If you’ve been following me for a while or have read my blogs you know that I’m starting over in my running life. I took time off and after a minor surgery, I am working on getting going again. I have a couple coaches and plans I’ve used in the past,...
Time to Make Sh*t Happen

Time to Make Sh*t Happen

So it’s been roughly 4 years since I ran my last marathon and about 14 months since I ran more than 100 yards. Weather, life, an injury, I can list the excuses to justify my absence but the truth is I got a little cocky. After 5 years of dedication to getting up...
Practice does not make perfect!

Practice does not make perfect!

“Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect.” – Vince Lombardi This has never been truer to me that this weekend when I went back to my running coach. I had taken 18 months off in an attempt to try and ‘do it on my own’ and failed...

I wish running was as easy as brushing my teeth.

I wish running was as easy as brushing my teeth.

Habits… I wish running was as easy as brushing my teeth. I got to a point in my running that I would naturally wake up before my alarm and go and meet my friends for an easy 5 mile run 3-4 times a week. It was a habit. One that I took for granted because I...
You are what you think

You are what you think

I saw this on a shirt of a kid playing basketball the other day. “Lazy … but talented.” I was on the elliptical upstairs listening to yet another self-help book when it occurred to me that I’ve been listening to these types of books since I was...
Starting over…. again

Starting over…. again

So if you read the about section you know I’m a distance runner. I don’t like to get up for less than a 10K, it just seems like a waste of time. Get in your car, park, line up, run for 30 minutes or less, rarely more than 45 and come home. Most times I...
What if you couldn’t run anymore?

What if you couldn’t run anymore?

So this was something I had to contemplate recently. The reason I haven’t been blogging is I’ve been injured. At first I thought it was just a strain – but it got worse quickly – so I started working with a holistic stretcher which made a lot...
