Crazy, obsessed or determined?

Ever since I started on my running journey I have been called many things; crazy is probably the most frequent one. Who knows, maybe I am a little crazy, but I know that running actually keeps me sane. If you know my story and some of my personal struggles you would probably agree that running … Continue reading Crazy, obsessed or determined?

It’s 2018 and I’m back…

So let’s get one thing straight… I hate New Year’s resolutions. The idea that I’m going to do something different in the New Year, because of what I didn’t do in the prior year is preposterous. Just set a goal, make a plan and stick to it, there is no ‘line in the sand’. All … Continue reading It’s 2018 and I’m back…

If there is one thing you should know about me is that I don’t quit. It may take me a while to get what I want but it will happen at some point in time.

I honestly have never been big into team sports and when I discovered running, the individual nature of the sport was the biggest allure for me. I felt responsible for my … Continue reading Running is a team sport…

Make every day count

It’s hard not to stop and think about my friends and family that live in Texas. This has been a difficult week for all of them and the road ahead is as uncertain as the path of the storm.

Smart goals are not always easy

Full disclosure, the term “smart” goal is not one I came up with; there is an entire field of study that dives deep into the effectiveness of having “SMART” goals.
