What amazing weather!

Hopefully, the weather in your part of the country is as nice as what we're experiencing here in Mid-Mo. It was the first time that I was able to run without having to wear gloves and some of my other cold weather gear. It was a beautiful m... Read more

It's not that things are not going well on this tour, but I am ready to get back home so that I can see my family and sleep in my own bed. We have one more conference today, and then it's time to head back home. At least I've been able to r... Read more

Like many of you I spend a considerable amount of time on the road away from home. Staying in hotels as often as I do can also bring with it some interesting challenges to my fitness goals. However, I am thankful that so many hotels have begun t... Read more
Smells like Spring?
Monday, March 01, 2010      3 comments

You may want to call my crazy, but as I ran this morning in below 30 degree weather (which actually felt kind of warm), listening to some birds chirping, I noticed a distinct smell in the air. I can't really describe it other than saying that it... Read more

Making Progress
Saturday, February 27, 2010      1 comments

All too often we have a tendency to determine our progress in relation to whether or not we achieve our goals. This is helpful as long as our goals are realistic. When it comes to health and fitness, many of us have a tendency to set goals that ... Read more

Am I Insane?
Thursday, February 25, 2010      5 comments

As I ran outside this morning while it was about 12 degrees F, I was beginning to question my sanity. Obviously, I was bundled up with all of the cold weather gear that I own as I rumbled down the road to get some miles in this morning. When I g... Read more
Staying focused
Wednesday, February 24, 2010      4 comments

Some days it feels better just to stay in bed and do nothing. Of course, then you win that all important battle of the sheets and you're ready to go. I really wanted to run this morning, but I just couldn't talk myself into getting out in 15 deg... Read more
