Living without

Is your health worth defending? Find a millions ways to stay motivated.


Living (and running) without custom foot orthotics for about 90 days now. In the big picture, this is hardly enough time to make a transition from 12 years of wearing them everyday.

However, it is a transition and so far so good.

i just need to remember that without orthotic support, strength will need to be developed and range of motion challenged and a new normal will emerge.

All of this takes time.

The itch to compete is strong; which means pushing yourself harder than normal.

Watched the US Indoor Track & Field Championships all weekend and then World Indoors is in 10 days, and the 2016 Rio Olympics is this Summer. So yeah, don’t overdo it jeff.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

This website is about our physical health. To easily and safely leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s spiritual health website, click here.
