Finding time to work out when you have a child is extremely difficult.  It takes strategic planning, flexibility, and most of all, desire.  Let’s be honest, taking care of a baby/toddler is a workout in itself.  We come home from work only to put on our parent hats and entertain our little boy for three […]

Experience Life

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 […]

As I have gotten older one thing has become increasingly clear, I am not getting any younger.  That fact seems glaringly obvious, but I guess I always believed that as I aged I would somehow stumble across a fountain of youth, even if accidentally.  But, as I look in the mirror with each day that […]

Turning a Walk into a Run

It has been over two months since I injured my back and I have managed to make progress, although it has been minimal.  Each day I awake with the hope that when my feet touch the ground I will feel “normal,” whatever that even means anymore.  Each day my patience is tested over and over, […]
