Stay Focused – Choose Success

December 4, 2013

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 […]

Overcoming obstacles can be difficult, especially when they seem out of your control.  But, I have come to realize that if you fight with every fiber of your being and never lose hope it’s possible to overcome anything.  Over a year ago I tore a muscle in my back.  I wondered if I would ever […]
