Spring Safely into Summer

Happy Memorial Day! The unofficial beginning of summer (Yes, I know it’s still spring until June and we want you to be safe in spring too: that’s why this blogpost is transitional;). As we ease into more sunny, warmer, weather, more runners and athletes...

Mindful Eats and Exercise Lifesavers

Happy Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) as some call it! What a wonderful day to have a brief discussion about mindful eating and exercise. Why is this relevant? Because today many of us tend to overindulge a bit with unhealthy choices: eating too much food and/or the wrong food and possibly drinking too much as well. […]

Cornucopia of Thanks

On the eve of Thanksgiving, many of us try to count our blessings and to remember to be grateful for what blessings we do have and continue to receive. Even if it does not always feel like it, my cup clearly overflows with with a cornucopia (Latin meaning “horn of plenty”) of blessings. (see Psalm […]

Happy National Running Day!

Happy National (international?) Running Day! Some of you may be asking “what is that?” Well, it’s a (recently designated) national running holiday (that means you run on the holiday as long as you are not injured) to celebrate the joys of running, to make your run fun. Just running as far as you can. See […]

May the 4th be with You!

Howdy pardners! How are you? It’s Lincoln Marathon weekend and I forgot to taper (HATE TAPERING!), so no marathon running for me this weekend. My daughter and I are volunteering to help for several hours so I’ll be on the giving end of water, sports drinks, gels, and “runner snacks” instead of the receiving end […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all! St. Patrick is a very special saint for me because 1) I’m Irish by descent with ancestors primarily from County Cork, Ireland (southern Ireland); 2) my middle name is Patrick, same as my Dad’s middle name, my grandfather’s middle name, and my third and fourth grandfather’s on my dad’s […]

I LOVE YOU RUNNING

Happy St. Valentine’s Day! It is a wonderful day for loving others and yes, for loving running. When did I discover I truly loved running? Probably when I was in my teens (maybe younger), shortly after a doctor told me in junior high no more football, you’re too thin, you’ll get hurt. I was angry […]

Many of us noticed today that God gave us a rare, special treat for the polar vortex blast we shoveled and drove through this morning. At first, […]
