The great summer of 2012

Thought I’d be able to run more (it didn’t happen)

We make plans, right? Say we’re going on a trip. We plan our arrival and departure and a few (or more) scheduled activities. Business appointments and meals are a given. I also plan eight hours sleep each night. What’s left is what we can call discretionary time – for running, sightseeing, etc.

Five days at Disneyland Paris. One 12-minute run. How did that happen? How does any of it happen? For any of us?

Lane 8 Paris To Helsinki

A year ago today, August 1, 2009, I was passing through Paris on the way to Helsinki. Here’s a 30-second look back in time, as I make good on a childhood dream and a promise:

Still Reflecting

Not a day goes by that the fond memories of Lahti, Finland don’t find a conscious place in my thoughts.

Without going into too much detail today, this event has changed my life.

Not in some major, 180 or 360 degree way.  But in a multitude of subtle ways.

Uploading You Tube videos is more time consuming than you might think.  Yet each time I do, there is a distinct memory – and key learning – with each.

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

There is something to be said for being self-taught.  For starters, you have 24/7, 365 access to the instructor.  How cool is that?

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Lane 8 Vision

Lane 8 Vision.  What’s the vision for Lane 8?  I’ve shared it over and over with people, one at a time.

It hit me.  Record a Lane 8 You Tube video and post it as a PAGE for first time visitors to Lane 8.

This is the first of several jeff noel midlife You Tube videos, sharing the vision for Lane 8.

Now, hopefully, you have a clearer picture.  But this is only the beginning.  Stay tuned.

As soon as I can, I’ll post the followup to this one.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Lane 8 in Paris?

Lane 8 in Paris?

Only for 90 minutes.

My first overseas flight to Helsinki through Paris.

I fly frequently, so I’m good with all the logistics.

Except at Charles DeGaulle Airport in Paris this morning.

Wow.  I barely made it.  So glad I didn’t give up this morning.

Miraculously, made it by five minutes.

Actually, not giving up is what got me here in the first place.

Carpe diem, and tempt yourself to never give up.  Because if you’re not tempted to not give up, what are tempted by?
