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 […]

Parenthood is an absurd undertaking.  It’s a complete change in lifestyle, an overall adjustment in perspective and a rebellion on all that you once viewed as normal.  It is, as many will tell you, absolutely tough as nails.  You spend the better part of nine months preparing for something you have no real business preparing […]

Last Sunday my wife and I took a stroll in the park.  For the first time in months we walked upon the concrete paths that have been associated with our training runs for so long.  We saw the trees swaying softly to the tune of the wind, as children’s laughter filled the air.  We heard […]

I would love to tell you that running our first full marathon was easy.  I would love to say that when we reached mile 25 we knew we were going to finish.  I would even love to say the weather was perfect.  But, I can’t say any of that.  What I can say is that […]
