Being Carried Away by the Broomstick!

When I was younger, “space” was something that appealed to me. I loved the Star Wars movies and was (and still) a Trekkie (Star Trek). My favorite morning cartoons were Star Blazers (Loved the wave motion gun) and Voltron. Yes, like many little boys of the 80’s, I was a GI Joe Fan and couldn’t get…

Happy ThanksGiving!

I wish everyone a Happy and safe Thanksgiving. For me today is the official beginning of the homestretch to the end of the year and one filled with family, friends and fun! Enjoy it and talk to you tomorrow. BM

Father and Son’s

Yesterday, I finally got to watch ESPN’s E60 on Travis Roy, 11 seconds. For those of you who are not familiar with his story, this link is from his foundation and a great summary of his life. It is a story of sadness but at the same time, it is a story of strength. Travis was a…

A Time to Remember

I am a HUGE Billy Joel Fan. I have been to many of his concerts over the years and I still remember the first time I saw “Piano Man” played at the Old Boston Garden over 20 years ago. What I like most about Billy (like I am friends with him or something) was his…

All About Motivation!

As I was going over my Instagram account today, I discovered a ton of motivational posters that I had created (or posted from other sites such as Runners World) over the past year. So I figured, let’s post a top 10 list like you see on television – only this is not “funny” but rather…

Questioning my Aches and Pains…is it the shoes or PsA?

I was going through my Twitter feed this morning and stumbled accross the following article, which was posted by Justin Stone at Alwaysrunningforward.com.  “Dear Running Community…What are we doing?“ It was a well thought out piece IMHO and I have been critical of ambassadorships in the past (feeling that product promotion was just becoming too…

Recapping the Motivation

Today I was reviewing all of my running photos of the past few months and realized that I have a ton of these motivational quote pics! So why not start a new segment! But what to name it! “Motivating me?” “Motivating you!” Just “motivation?” Unsure as I am not that motivated to put out a…

Reach the end….

   Inspiration can come from anywhere. Something as small as an act of kindness to another or a game winning goal, can motivate one to work hard or do good for someone who is lacking such. For me, lately motivation to run has been missing. I can’t really explain why though the flu bug really…

Reboot…again?

So how many times do you reboot a computer before calling it quits and either a) find a tech to help you or b) toss the box in the trash? Well, today I am announcing a reboot (again) of my computer (i.e. “Me”) after a tough run of health the last few weeks. I Had…

Questions & More questions…

  I have a question for you this Friday. What the heck is a brand ambassador? Is it a person who mediates disputes between brands or countries? Like a ambassadors around the world, do they get appointed by the president? What power do these in Ambassadors have?  Can they topple other brands or competitors? Can…

Back in the Saddle again!

   Yesterday was the first day of the rest of my running year! That is what I proclaimed on Twitter (along with “I’m baaacccckkkk) after running a quick 8 miles. While not my best pace (I have been in the 7s recently), I will take it and I now begin my preparation in earnest for…
