Weekend Motivation 109

Last post was all about reflecting on the summer that was. This picture was pretty much the high point in my summer fitness wise and it took me almost 2 decades to do it. What made it so cool, nothing really there's this local river I've always wanted to swim in and I biked there... Continue Reading →

CHANGE IS SCARY! Especially if you don't absolutely have to do it or if you're otherwise in a happy place. Let's face it even if everything is only good enough staying where you are right now definitely feels the most comfortable. The change can even be demonstrably and rationally the right choice but that doesn't... Continue Reading →

Weekend Motivation 106

Runners, athletes and especially endurance athletes hear it all the time. "I could NEVER do that." It seems though as much as you reassure them that they could no one ever believes you. At least once or twice a year I line up and do something that was in fact truly impossible for me just... Continue Reading →

I don't know about all of you but I'm reaching that point in my training cycle where things are getting, well a bit nuts.

No one else matters! Sometimes you can feel pressure from outside forces... Continue Reading →

Weekend Motivation 82

Over the last month or two I realized something and it's a big one for me. I figured out something new about me and running. Not a fun fact or a new product something deeper than that. You could say I'm a slow learner since it took me 23-ish years to figure it out. While... Continue Reading →

Weekend Motivation 78

It's almost spring training season! Or maybe if you don't live in the great white frozen north (this week) it already is for you. For the first time in three years, I'm not really sure what I'm doing this year. Usually, I have a pretty good idea what's up next year as early as the... Continue Reading →
