Dear Son

We began jogging two mailboxes a day this week

Yesterday, at High School – college recruiting is a big deal there.


We began jogging two mailboxes a day this week, our third week now since starting this journey on Halloween. The first two weeks were one mailbox a day.

Reminded the High School freshman that we will look back on these early days and be thankful and mindful that “slow and steady” is an unbeatable strategy – as long as we stay with it.

What's Our Obligation?

Just get started, please

Negative splits and the final mile the fastest.


Just get started, please.

Time, comparison, inability, lack of motivation, procrastination.

Screw those things.

Note: When i started running in 1999, 100 meters was all i could do. Yesterday however, mile 8 was the final (and fastest) mile if you subtract mile 9 as a cool down and mile 10 as a walk (additional cool down).

Not exercising because you’re out of shape is like not taking a shower because you’re dirty.

Come on man.

He’s never been a runner. He’s mid to late 40’s.

People who aren’t runners generally hate running.

Why hate running?

Told him the only time you should ever hate running is when you are doing too much of it.
