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…

Why We Do

It is no secret that I am a fan of Seth Godin. In the past few months, I’ve read a few of his books and I subscribe to his daily blog. Yesterday, he posted this list of reasons we do things and I thought it was so moving, literally and figuratively – his words made me…

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…

How fast do gorillas crawl?

It takes a special person to decide to do something that’s never been done before. Call it a stunt, call it crazy, but when someone decides to break away and follow their own path, it is brave. There are no guide books for what you will encounter on the journey and how to react to each situation….

Me Gusta Correr

I ran 2.2 miles this morning before breakfast and while I was out, I was just singing to myself, like a mantra, Me gusta correr. Me gusta correr. I like to RUN!    Does running make you happy? I think we should do the things we love. If an activity or a job or a…

How To Trick Your Brain Into Thinking About Running

I haven’t run in a while. My favorite excuses: It’s been too cold. It’s been snowing. It’s too slushy as the snow melts. I’ve been too busy. I just barely have enough energy to get to the gym and do a few cycles on the elliptical. You know the excuses. Chances are, you might have…

Summer Plans

Every summer, I make a list of things I want to do/places to visit/activities to try. My birthday is around Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of summer. On my list for the period June 21st – Sept 7th this year: Run 100 miles Bike 200 miles (this goal will probably extend to Sept 13,…

3 Life Lessons From Wild Animals

I visited the Museum of Natural History over the weekend and couldn’t help thinking about the life lessons I was getting from the exhibits. Today, I share 3 lessons from the museum with you: Eat Right: Diet isn’t everything. Last week, I had an interesting argument debate with my gym friend about replacing all-you-can-eat cake…

Weekends In NYC

Sometimes, getting out of bed on a cold morning is the hardest thing to do but once you’re up, there’s so much to enjoy, that later, you wonder if you’ll ever tire of it all, because there’s so much to ponder, like… A woman in the street that makes you think about color and shapes…

Running In The Rain: Good or Bad?

Rain can derail your outdoor plans. Plan an outdoor event and you’ll be watching the forecast like a hawk and probably planning a backup indoor venue too. But what if instead of a fancy dinner party, you’ve scheduled a long run, something on the order of an hour or two of running, to prepare for…
