Owner of a Lonely Cart

Happy Music Monday! Let me explain: Today I sought a somewhat hilly course for my second run and noticed a lonely shopping cart atop a hill near Southpointe Mall in Lincoln. So I decided to stop there and maybe return the cart to its rightful store. Why? Because...

Ice Bath Therapy

Lately, I’ve discovered an exciting new way of recovering from long runs that is atypical, fast, and therapeutic: the (somewhat dreaded) weekly ICE BATH. At first it seemed crazy because it is so opposite (at least in temperature) to my usual means of recovery: the whirpool. But when I heard from enough people (friends and […]

SunnySnowDog Sneaux Day!

Happy sunny Snow Dog Sneaux Day! We got some snow last night so our daughter and lots of other kids are excited about their snow-or is it sneaux?-day! 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, […]
