I quit with this half marathon race this year. I had the race all picked out after MONTHS of brain storming, and everything fell through related to where I was going to run it. With that and the distractions between the jobs (the one I don't l... Read more

Searching for the CONSTANT FIRE

Mentally frustrated. Unfocused. Basically unmotivated. HARDLY DEFEATED though. This is just such a drastic difference from last year. From not having clear goals, to dealing with injuries, and the complete change in the workouts and their f... Read more

So my wife texts me as to how she thinks it's amazing what she saw yesterday at the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in Chicago seeing the runners. Eeeeeeh........I don't know. Maybe it's a matter of perspective. For a former smoker, someone who was... Read more

So today was the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in Chicago, and my wife and I went down to see some of it. We didn't make it to see the actual beginning of the race, but we did see the lead runners around the 6 mile point and then at the finish line... Read more

Drove home to run away from home to burn carbs so I could eat carbs.

Rib muscle what. Temperatures in the what. Just give me a dry window and I'll run. I got out of work at 5pm, and AGAIN...........dark skies loomed overhead. By the time I got home and put my running shoes on ... Read more

I have turned a blind eye to my rib injury and put together a few decent runs. With that it seems to accelerated the healing process. I just cant stay down in fear I might not get back up. So I figure my issues out. Mental strength leads to... Read more

So I'm still fighting this intercostal muscle thing. I did some light lifting at the gym the other night and tried stretching things out a little to see if I could loosen the muscles up a little, but I think I ended up aggravating things a litt... Read more

So last Thursday a freak injury occurred at the gym. During one of my lifts I felt a pop in my ribcage on my right side. It instantly made me stop what I was doing. It was not the first time I did this exercise, and the weight wasn't really t... Read more

I don't have a clue as to why my running times are getting faster. I'm not complaining, but still I search for the understanding in it just to satisfy my curiosity. The weather absolutely sucks this year. It rains just about everyday. Days w... Read more

If I can run there, I KNOW I CAN RUN BACK!!!!

I swear there has got to be some kind of chemical change that occurs when I go out on a run sometimes. I got out of a VERY bad half day at work, and after lounging around the house, I had a protein bar (which obligated me to go out and run) and... Read more

I'm getting closer and closer to locking the focus into another half marathon. The weather is getting warmer, and the runs are changing. Certain traits of the runner I was last year are coming back now. Last night I went out alone and just ke... Read more

Well it looks like if I am to do another half marathon this year, it's going to be in North Carolina. I was opposed to doing another day race, and thought country-like scenery was not interesting enough for me. In talking with my uncle though,... Read more

So now the weather is getting into the warm and sticky area. It's the weather I thrive in. I REALLY backed off on my running since the first of the year, and right now I'm just starting to get that "on a roll" feeling. I had the idea of runni... Read more

So I get off of work and I'm doing the Superman thing. Rip off the work clothes in the bathroom and change into the running clothes (boy did I feel out of place walking out.) First run home from the new job. It was supposed to be in the mid 5... Read more

Man I got that lyric just RINGIN' in my ears! That right there is going to be my motto for the year. It's not a message to anyone else. It's a message to myself. That's ALL motivation for me. I feel strong, fast, capable, and just overall a... Read more
