WIR: Back in the Saddle Again

Let’s start off with a question for those who have run very long distances: Do you still feel the  effects of said long race a few weeks after? I ask because since my first marathon, I am still feeling the pain in strange parts of body that I have never felt before! New ankle injury…

WIR: Courage and Dreams!

   When Walt shared the words above, I would imagine he was not talking about runners per se but these words are easily translatable to the Boston Marathon runners of yesterday.

WIR: Reboot 2016 Continues!

    It is amazing what better weather will do for a runner! When getting up on an Monday and the temps are 50 degrees or more, the body and mind have no resistance whatsoever to going out and running. 30 degrees…well, let’s just say it is a struggle! Anything in between, 50/50. As we move…

Challenging?…

WIR: Wearables, Simplicity and not so Fit!

   When I first launched this Blog over this past summer, my goal was to keep myself accountable for my goals. If I proclaim it to the world, then IT MUST HAPPEN! Ok, probably not that extreme but it does help in keeping me inline with the path to my goals. One of those goals…

What You Miss? Week in Review Running & Pics

It has been a slow week on the running front. Started tinkering with my running form a bit after listening to the “Cool Impossible” and all I was left with was major calf pain! What I did learn though is that my arm swing needed to be fixed a tad (and my numbers improved after…

What Did You Miss? Week in Review

   Well, here is the latest “what did you miss?” If I could find the posts of the past few months, you would know that this is a review of the past week in running and pics. This week included the Seacoast Half Marathon so I did a good deal of running this week and…
