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...

7×7 Running Challenge

Today, I completed an unusual 7X7 mathematical running challenge. No, it’s not related to football. But that’s where I got the idea for the numbers: those 7 on 7 drills that are so common for football success. I decided to attempt to run 7 miles or more on...

Sprinkle Hopeful Magnificence!

Here’s a wonderful recipe for a magnificent Monday (and any other day): Sprinkle HOPE! Watch this special classic Periscope (one of my favorites) from 3 months ago via katch and find out why hope is so important, how it is overlooked, and how we can restore it to our daily routine to strengthen and enrich […]

Join 10K Step Challenge

Do you track your steps and activities? Today I challenged my Periscope audience to run and/or walk some combination of 10,000 steps or more every day. (If you are sick, injured, or taking rest days, there may be exceptions to this obviously. We all have to listen to our bodies.) Why should we do this? […]

Shrinking Mountains into Molehills

On January 29, 2016, I recorded a blab on Shrinking Mountains into Molehills, focusing on SMART (Specific-Measurable-Attainable-Relevant-Time-Bound) goals and using incrementalism to achieve fitness and health goals like running a “bucket list” race like the Great Wall of China Marathon and weight loss. Enjoy!

Running Fortress

If and when we build that fortress around our run(s)…it’s not exactly how that song by Sting goes, is it? I know, fortress around your heart, fortress around your run. Very similar because we do run with and for our hearts, souls, bodies. But we could sing that song that way while we run. Hint […]

Challenge Yourself!

How do you respond to challenges? Do you run from them? Embrace them? Accept them? Ponder them? Does it depend upon the size of the challenge? They vary in size and intensity. Some can be fulfilled in a day, some cannot. Sometimes the challenges we can fulfill in a day give us a motivational boost […]

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 […]

Outfoxed by Snowfall 50k

What a month January was! 271 miles of running! A new record perhaps. Or slightly less than what I ran in college when I was in marathon training. I logged miles then but didn’t really care about the quantity of miles so much as long as I completed my long runs, it was more about […]
