April 25, 2016

Oftentimes we get caught up in what we believe is truth, without ever fully comprehending it.  We prevent ourselves from experiencing exciting new things out of fear.  We do this because of perception.  We forget that it’s all conjecture and sometimes, unfortunately, we avoid the experience altogether.  I did that with running, until I ran […]

It has been a while since my last post.  It’s not that I have forgotten about how important running is to me, or my health in general.  It’s just a matter of finding the time.  Between starting a new job and purchasing a new home with my wife things have been a bit chaotic.  During […]
