Runstreak Turns 3

On November 19, 2013, I began my current runstreak, which turned 3 years old today, day 1096. It’s been an exciting adventure, full of challenges, surprises, adjustments, walk breaks, and most recently, PRs. I can’t overemphasize the impact that running...

Good Life Halfsy PR-fect

On Sunday, November 5, 2016, I ran the Good Life Halfsy half-marathon for the first time in Lincoln, Nebraska. Yes, I ran my Halfsy off! The official time of 1:38:19 confirmed a new half-marathon PR: crushed my 1999 half-marathon PR by more than a minute using...

Speedy Laughing Half-Marathon

Last Saturday, on June 18, 2016, on runstreak day 943, I ran the Laugh and a Half-Marathon in Norfolk, Nebraska for the second time. I ran this race 5 years ago on a much different, hillier course. Learning that the course had been modified and re-routed to follow the...

Faster Frigidity

Today, I ran the GSK 10k Run in Lincoln for the first time. It was a fast frigid adventure. Cold and wind dominated the race (this seems to be a persistent theme this year for the last few races). The race starts and finishes at Holmes Park/Holmes Lake in Lincoln. I...

Sledding Wildly

Yesterday, I ran my first trail 5k race in Ashland, Nebraska, about halfway between Lincoln and Omaha. It was a challenging race: hills, snow, ice, mud, sharp turns, a few short slippery bridges, and branches/sticks on the course made for a fun but challenging adventurous race. This race course with snow and ice on it […]

Run Kaleidoscope

Today, on run streak day 800, I created a photographic running kaleidoscope showing my top 9 moments from today’s 8.12 mile run. I captured the sun, moon, straws, clouds, and a few glimpses of rustic Nebraska prairie. Ran 1.05 mi with Misty (our dog) and then...

Never Surrender!

Hello family and friends and Happy New Year everyone! We are enjoying the fresh wintry snowy sensation today. Our dog Misty tries to eat all the snow! Every 5 or 10 feet or so, it doesn’t matter whether we are running or walking she reacts the same: with fresh excited anticipation. We as adults don’t […]

From Nose to Toes

From my nose to my toes, I really felt those relaxing runs this year. Are you surprised with my choice of key running body parts? Let me explain: My nose because of the cold air forcing me to cover it with a hat, some smoky days when air quality here in Lincoln was very low, […]

Desert Dancing

On December 5, 2015, I had the amazing experience of running the exciting inaugural Run Laughlin half-marathon in Nevada and Arizona. As the lucky recipient of a free race entry (and free hotel stay) through a #RunChatHunt scavenger hunt, I sauntered off on a fruitful journey to Nevada from Nebraska to run. Thanks to @TheRunChat […]

Top 10 Runstreaking Secrets

Two years ago today, November 19, 2013, I began an amazing journey pursuing a lengthy runstreak that has transformed my health, running, and life. At first this was intended to just be a 100 day runstreak. But I found I liked runstreaking so much I just could not stop the momentum. I joined the U.S. […]
