It’s officially fall! Which means it’s officially marathon training season. WOOHOO! What does that mean in Florida?

Now throw people who have to fight … Continue reading Be OBSESSIVELY grateful

As a runner you must have heard Pheidippides. If you haven’t than shame on you! Let’s go back, waaaay back in B.C. he ran from Marathon to Athens which was about 25 miles to deliver the news of victory against the Persians at the Battle of Marathon.

But sometimes it does knock me down. The strong do have their days. We do have our moments of weakness. I mean the last time I checked, I am … Continue reading It won’t define me.
