40 Days of Meditation

Today, on September 19, 2016, I completed 40 consecutive days of meditation. Meditating on regular basis has helped me to relax, find more calm and peace in a busy life, and has allowed me to strengthen my mind and mindset to have a more powerful impact upon our...

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 […]

Shifting Seasoning for Chaos

Last month, I unexpectedly lost my job. I had worked there for 7 1/2 years. It was a very difficult, challenging situation and has been a true struggle to accept. At first, it seemed beyond chaotic, more like catastrophic. Losing my job at first felt like being in a rapidly-sinking shipwreck. But there comes a […]

#CrushAsthma

Well, it happened. A minor asthma setback. No not an asthma attack. Last Friday, I visited my asthma doctor for a checkup and thought it would be routine. But I was wrong. Recently, I’ve been using my rescue inhaler more for asthma. Even my running has been more labored. I didn’t really think anything of […]

Carpe Diem!

Wow, it’s been a very difficult, strange week. Hard to believe that the great comic genius Robin Williams is gone. He’s one of the funniest people I have ever known. And he connected with us so strongly with his humanity and down-to-earth personality. His creativity was evident in his work, from movies, to TV shows, […]

Bronzed Middle Ages

Racing through the Middle Ages…I mean my middle ages… First of all, I hope you are not upset at me blending the Bronze and Middle Ages together. I’m not trying to be historically confusing. But I’m middle-aged and well, more about the bronze… Saturday, I ran the Energy 5k as part of the Cornhusker State […]

Going for Gold: Aiming for 5k PR

Tomorrow I am running in the Cornhusker State Games Energy 5k race for the third year in a row. Two years ago, I raced to a silver in my age group. Last year, bronze in my age group. Medal that’s missing? Gold. What does the watch say? Let’s just say the watch is optimistic. Can […]

If you Give an Ultra Wookie a Cookie…

If you give an ultra WOOKIE a COOKIE (wookies prefer chocolate chip), he’ll ask you for some blended almond milk/coconut milk (50/50) to wash down the cookie. Why? Because like me, this wookie named Chewbacca is lactose-intolerant. Think of the blend as the wookie equivalent of an Arnold Palmer. If you give him the almond/coconut […]
