Frenetically Frozen

Looked for a good last race of winter/first day of spring test race to run and like a good neighbor, the State Farm Run was there. Last Saturday, on day 852 of my runstreak, I ran the State Farm Run 10 mile race in Lincoln, Nebraska. I had not run this race in many...

Last Wintry Gasp

Today’s last gasp of winter photos from our backyard. Snow is not unprecedented this late in March in Nebraska but it’s rare....

Groundhog Day Snowscope

On Groundhog Day earlier this week, I filmed a brief snow scope on Periscope showing our thundersnow and Misty our dog playing in the snow. 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 […]

Beware the STRIDES of March!

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears: Remember the “Beware the IDES of MARCH” line in Julius Caesar (Act I, Scene 2 for us Shakespeare geeks), the famous Shakespeare play? Caesar foolishly ignored the warning of the soothsayer and the rest is history. Well, tomorrow is the Ides of March (March 15). And running is […]

Climb Every Mountain!

Let’s talk seriously about mountain climbing and chasing dreams. Sometimes (like amidst a frigid polar vortex) as runners we seek out epic, tough challenges, to dream big, to truly get outta Dodge, “leave town” and take on something that really stretches us. An adventure race. Or at least a great adventure. Besides, running the same […]

RunStreak thru Fatigue

Despite the snowy subzero temps/windchills here, today I’m 80 days into my longest run streak in recent memory (streak began Nov. 19, 2013). How did this happen? This streak was supposed to end after Jan. 1. Not sure I could do this. But fatigue has become an issue. Slamming coffee. Strange blood blister on 1 […]

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, […]
