Stay healthy. Have fun.

Competing only with ourselves is still a competition.

Will take anything near 22:10 in this morning’s Windermere Run Among The Lakes 5k.

Real life in real time… in-the-moment moments happen constantly


What if we had a great reputation with ourselves?

Work will always be one of the highest ranked excuses for not exercising.


Ran for an hour yesterday. Ran 50 minutes the day before that.

While running, thought this morning would be another great opportunity for a long, slow run.

Awoke at 2:30am and it’s now six hours later.

No run.

Time for more work.

No time to run, not even one mile?
