    Can Running Change Your Life

    A while back, I posted this comment on Facebook: “It’s possible for you learn to love running.  In doing so you can learn to love your life.” The comments were intense. People pushed back. There was a lot of resistance. Some of it was legitimate. People shared health issues that prevented...

    Accidental Rest

    I accidently took a rest day. I was planning on running. The run was scheduled in my calendar. I had every intention of doing it. But I didn’t. I didn’t consciously come up with an excuse not to do it. I didn’t even think about it. It simply didn’t happen. So...

    Body Love

    I was having a discussion today with a friend about body ‘love.’  The concept of really loving your body, regardless of what it weighs.  My friend wanted to know how you change your mindset from one of dislike to one of love.  How to let go of the ‘fat’ kid...

    There’s a lot of talk right now about ‘barefoot’ running. It’s a craze.  Some experts love it, some aren’t so sure. That’s the problem with experts.  There’s rarely consensus.  Different experts, different opinions.  No clear path for the lay person. I like running in shoes.  I also see the logic...

    What Are You Missing?

    I almost ran into two huge geese while running. They were walking along the river, right in my line of site and I almost missed them!!!  I was lost in thought.  In my head.  Focused on other things.  And I literally almost ran into two ginormous geese in the middle...

    Are You a Runner?

    “I’m not a runner.” It’s something I hear almost every day as I coach people through life using running as a catalyst to change. I hear it more than almost anything else. I hear it from marathon runners, I hear it from casual weekend runners.  I hear it from hard...

    How Do You Want to Finish?

    “When you come to the end of all the light you know, and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.”...

    Running Through It

    I didn’t want to run today. I was feeling down. Sad. Missing my husband. The weather matched my mood. Rainy, overcast, windy. I had more than enough good excuses to stay inside and feel sorry for myself. I didn’t. I grabbed my shoes and loaded my ipod with a new...

    Running Cold

    Hell must have frozen over.  It was that cold outside. And I was running. In fact, that’s how I knew that hell must have frozen over. Me.  Running.  Outside. Temperature 30 degrees. Back before I was a runner I thought runners always enjoyed running. Even if was cold.  Or raining. ...

    Hate Running?

    This is for all of you out there who hate running. I hear ya!  Been there, done that. For a long time actually.  Every now and then, I still find myself hanging out in that boat. To be clear, I’m not interested in convincing you to love running. I have...
