The Second President

June 1st seems like time to start all over again but some things have to carry over from May, right? In May, I set a goal to get back into outdoor running so I started a challenge where I would run every weekday. Today is day 19 of the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual…

T.O.L. 5 25 17

The daily workout challenge continues. Two weeks ago, I announced my intention to run-walk everyday with my virtual running-buddy. Today is day 14 and the goal is to go for a run/walk outside for at least 1.5 miles. Comment below if you’d like to join the challenge so I can add you to the daily tracker. Runwright Update: Run 14 was a 1.7 mile…

Run Walk Challenge – The First 12 Days

A little over two weeks ago, I started a daily run-walk challenge with my virtual running-buddy. I didn’t make a big deal about it because I was afraid I wouldn’t stick with it and I didn’t want to announce it and fail in front of all of you. Haha. Like that hasn’t happened several times before. Anyway, the…

What Moses Said

We’re at the cusp of an amazing week. Monday morning. The days ahead have all kind of promise, all kind of potential. How will you tap your potential this week? Yesterday, I had a chat with a good friend about how we use our time and about how Moses prayed, teach us to number our…

Time Is Money 1

The truth is that I have a gym membership I don’t use. I tell myself that because it only costs a little bit each month, it’s okay for me to go only sporadically. But a few days ago, I got a horrid surprise in that my annual membership fee was deducted from my account and…

Half Marathon

Last week, I promised myself that I would amp up my daily activity. And today I set a standard I probably won’t make for the rest of the week but it made for a really active Sunday. Indeed today will be remembered as the day I walked a half marathon in my neighborhood so although…

Fitness Focus 11 11 16

As a child, I couldn’t sit still. I had so much energy. I never walked somewhere if I could run instead. I didn’t sit down if I could jump around. I couldn’t tell you the number of times I got hurt because I couldn’t obey the instructions to not move around so much. And I…

Fitness Focus 10 28 16

After months away, I finally went back to the gym today. I had a cold this week but after several cups of tea made with lemon, ginger, Tumeric and honey, I’ve finally started feeling better and I felt like I needed a little activity to get me back on track. The gym has changed. There…

Weigh Less Before Running

I’ve been running on and off for decades now. When I was a teenager, there was a time when my next-door neighbor and I used to run together in the evenings. I had forgotten about that until one day last week, the memory just came back to me. I had a running club way before I…

Tales from the gym 

A few days ago, I showed you what was on my phone’s camera roll. Today, I’ll let you in on what I’m thinking about my workout experiences.  I returned to my gym yesterday. I haven’t been there in a while and it shows in more ways than one. I’ve lost some of my fitness and…

How To Run

Running is the simplest sport. You don’t need a ball, a court or a partner. In fact, you don’t even really need special sneakers because barefoot running is a thing and races have been won in socks, combat boots or whatever footwear a person happens to have on at the time. But running can also…

Free To Run

To celebrate Veteran’s Day – being able to live in the land of the free, – I went out for a 2 mile free run this afternoon. No worries about pace, just run.  I like that I got these shots because now I see how my strike changes when I run downhill. On a flat…
