Patience = Success
This is a quick one. Some people may remember me having a very rotten attitude following my Feb 5k 2014 race for the BARC. See that day I didn't try hard enough, didn't have my head in it, and did not give it my all. I had earned a first plac... Read more
Changes in Running.
Most people here know I'm a runner. Some people think I'm a good runner. Not really, just tough and persistent about it. This winter I signed up for three local 5k, three half marathons 70 miles away, and one 10k in Port Huron. I've already ... Read more

Life just loves the curve ball.

Running with a Friend.
As a bar/server employee you might think I have lots of friends. This could not be farther from the truth. I could have 1000 drinking buddies, but conversations are almost all limited to 2 minutes or less. When everyone is out with friends, o... Read more
