The greatest lesson of my life…

Running taught me the greatest lesson in life and she did it it the most brutally sincere way. She nearly killed me in pursuit of my biggest goal and it prepared me to go broke, die, and learn to live. The universe took everything away from me and I learned to appreciate the small things […]

Thank you for telling me no…

I should have never become a good writer and runner… Who would have thought the two best stress reliefs I would ever have would be what I was least talented at growing up? I was in Kindergarten when my best friend ran farther and faster than me because he drank chocolate milk. I was in […]

10 Tips to Control your Holiday Feast

Don’t blow the last 6 months of progress just because you have an excuse to… We are headed into my least favorite time of year… The holidays are filled with overeating, candy, food gift baskets, parties, booze, and everything else I fight off every day… Don ‘t get me wrong, I love the positivity surrounding […]

Halloween Hangover…

So you had a bad day… UGH! I can already feel the roughness of the Holidays upon me… It starts with Halloween Candy, moves to a huge Thanksgiving feast and then to Christmas Dinner. The overeating, the chocolate, the endless amounts of sweets. I am not looking forward to the next two months. This is […]

I hope you fail…

WHAT?! Why would I want you to fail?! “Persistence is the missing component to success.” No I’m not ruthless. No I don’t get a guilty pleasure out of the pain of others. No I don’t like to see the disappointment of others when they don’t reach their goals. No I don’t want to be better […]

Running in the Dark

With Fall in full swing, I spend most of my time running in the dark. It’ll be this way until mid to late April or even May depending on my schedule. Being a dad, a spouse of a grad student (who also works full time), having a full time job, working to start my own […]

It’s Cold… So WAKE UP AND RUN!!!

So. It’s here… My 9 months of winter running has showed up early and now that 3AM alarm looks even worse to me… 32 degrees (Fahrenheit) wasn’t the funnest and definitely not when it’s the first week of September! Someone asked me how I stay motivated to keep getting up early and running in the […]

Daddy! Did you sell a car today?

Daddy! Did you sell a car today? Talk about accountability! This is the first question my boys ask when I get home from work. What’s the worst answer I can give them? No… Why? Because their next question is “why’d you go to work then?”. What if you asked yourself the same question about your […]

I can’t take it anymore… Just set HIGH GOALS!!!

Look. Don’t listen to the B.S. of working toward “realistic” goals. I can’t stand when people say you should only work toward something that you think is “achievable”. I have read a lot on goals. I study them, set my own and I teach how to set and work toward goals. If there is one […]
