Have you ever wanted to run a marathon?  Here’s your chance.  I am looking for some motivated people to come run the Chicago Marathon with me in October.  Are you interested? Last year I ran the Chicago Marathon with Team Healthy Kids and I’ll be doing it again this year with Willie.  I really want to put together a team to run for a great cause.  Childhood obesity is a great risk to our country and I want to do something about it.  This is my way of making difference.  Do you want to make a difference with me?

I ventured down some serious back roads to Albany, GA to capture state #16 on my marathon quest.  The destination was the Snickers Marathon and Half Marathon.  I decided on this race after finding out I wouldn’t be able to run the Georgia Marathon because I already signed up for another race.  I am so glad I double checked my calendar and decided to run this race.

Basically, I haven’t been putting in the work. I’m just going through the motions and that’s not what I want RIGHT now. I want… View Post

I’m probably being too cautious with my recovery but I don’t want to be injured again where I shouldn’t be running.  That’s a very scary things.  I felt like I lost my best friend and I don’t like losing my best friends.  It hurts and it’s sad.  No more sad faces in my life. Welcome to my week in recovery. So I’ve been really weird about my running.  I haven’t ran this week since I ran a lot last weekend.  I’m running the Austin Marathon in 3 weeks and I really want to do well.  Last year, I bailed out… View Post
