Thoughts from the Road: Running in 500 Words or Less. Vol. 13

Thoughts from the road. Running involves COMMITMENT… Running involves COMMITMENT. Running takes Time. Put in to much time running and not enough time recovering…the body can fail.

Thoughts from the road. Going Forward in Reverse… I like running backwards!! Funny things happen when we just keep moving!

Thoughts from the Road: Running in 500 Words or Less. Vol. 8

Thoughts from the road. “Speed is Relative” How fast do you RUN?? Does it really matter?? Running is so strange when it comes to “ranking.” A fast marathon pace is not a fast 400 meter pace…Likewise, fast for me and fast for you are likely different. I’m no pro-runner…You may be!!! The concept of pace […]
