Wow! It felt so much better as I was heading out for my morning run today. It's amazing the difference a few degrees and a lack of humidity can make. Hopefully, your morning went well.... Read more
Hello Humidity

It felt like July out there this morning. The air was soupy thick, and the heat was already building. It was nearly 80 degrees when I was outside running at 6 a.m. this morning. This is all part of living in mid-Mo. However, I was hoping f... Read more
Taking a day off
Sunday, May 23, 2010      2 comments

It's nice to take a day off from exercising every once in a while. As a runner, I find that my body responds well to taking days off from the high impact activity. Now I won't completely veg out today. My wife and I will probably go for a walk w... Read more
Thankful for the water
Saturday, May 22, 2010      2 comments

As I was running this morning I was thankful for a tip that a friend gave me about running longer distances. He encouraged me to get used to carrying water with me on my long runs, and drinking it in intervals along the way to stay hydrated. Wit... Read more
Summer is in the air?
Friday, May 21, 2010      4 comments

After a few nice springlike days, it looks like the beginning of summer heat is heading to mid-Mo. Highs in the upper 80's and low 90's are heading our way this weekend. I imagine our 7 year old will be begging us to get out the sprinkler this S... Read more
The Journey
Thursday, May 20, 2010      2 comments

Being a typical guy, when I go somewhere, I usually choose the quickest or shortest route, so as to limit my travel time and arrive at my destination promptly. While this works on most road trips, it isn't always the best way for me to appr... Read more
Hotel Gyms
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      4 comments

I guess it's a good sign that many hotels are now offering fitness equipment facilities on their properties. I am sure this is a liability issue for some of them, but the demands and comfort of their guests obviously outweigh those concerns for ... Read more
Beautiful Morning

After all the rain and cruddy weather we have had here in Mid-Mo, it was refreshing to get out for an early morning run and actually see the Sun. It must have energized me, because my pace was quicker than it's been over the past few weeks... Read more

When I think back to what happened on this day 24 years ago, I cannot help but consider myself abundantly blessed. At about 2:30 in the afternoon after all of the pomp and circumstance, Debbie and I exchanged vows and our new life together had b... Read more

It's been a good weekend to hang out with the family. Of course, we can get outside to do anything because of this continuous rain. Hope it begins to dry out this week.... Read more
Longer than expected
Saturday, May 15, 2010      2 comments

It was a weird run this morning. I went out planning on running a more normal distance of 6 miles. However, once I got out there, the rain let up and the nice temps allowed my to push myself and get closer to my normal Saturday long run. I... Read more

It was nice to get back on the pavement again this morning. The weather was wonderful this morning, and I think the day off yesterday gave me a little more energy. Hope your Friday is going better than expected.... Read more
No run today
Thursday, May 13, 2010      1 comments

Looks like I'll have to stay inside most of the day. It was not safe to go out for a run this morning. Rain is one thing, but lightening is something else entirely. Hopefully, each of you are able to get in your daily exercise. Tomorrow loo... Read more
Between the rain drops

It was nice to find some time this morning, after the deluge had stopped to get in a quick run this morning. Thankfully, we have not had to endure the dangerous weather that people to the southwest of us have. However, tonight may be a different... Read more

It was nice to get out this morning without having to worry about rain, lightning, or any of the usual Spring weather hazards that most of us have to endure. I was surprised not to see more people out this morning, especially considering that ou... Read more
