Thoughts from the road. “Some days you’re the Dog; Some days you’re the Hydrant!” What is running?? Quite simply: it’s left foot, right foot…repeat! Again and again, over and over, step after step and mile after mile. Sometimes our feet fall easily, one in front of the other; other times it’s everything we have to […]

Thoughts from the road. The Long Straight Road. I happen to be a fan of running long straight roads. I enjoy staring off into the distance and seeing the endless asphalt in front of me. To some this may seem unbearable, I know many runners who dread the long straight road. As for me though, […]

Thoughts from the road. Running involves COMMITMENT… Running involves COMMITMENT. Running takes Time. Put in to much time running and not enough time recovering…the body can fail. Don’t put in enough time, running sporadically and playing the “weekend warrior” and the body can break. So where do you draw the line? How do you commit enough and not over-train??? As a […]

Thoughts from the road. Going Forward in Reverse… I like running backwards!! Funny things happen when we just keep moving! Be it forward or backward, if we just keep going we always end up further along the road. How we move…That’s just a matter of circumstance. Sometimes we move quickly forward, other times we trudge onward barely picking […]

Thoughts from the road. My “Running Refresher.” Recently I set out on a early morning Long Run. It was Florida Cold at 48 degrees and it was hours before sun up. I was questioning my own sanity as I put my hat and gloves on for what I planned to do. Sometimes as runners we […]

Thoughts from the road. Running Home… I enjoy my steps along the road. Leaving the house and heading into to great unknown of what each run will bring. It’s always amusing to me how I can have one intention for how my run will go and how my body tends to try and dictate another […]

Thoughts from the road. “Speed is Relative” How fast do you RUN?? Does it really matter?? Running is so strange when it comes to “ranking.” A fast marathon pace is not a fast 400 meter pace…Likewise, fast for me and fast for you are likely different. I’m no pro-runner…You may be!!! The concept of pace training […]

Thoughts from the road. Falling Down… It happens to all us now and again. Back in my more competitive days I once fell down while jumping a chain fence!! Silly as this sounds, it ended up being quite serious. This particular fall happened 2 weeks before our State Championship Cross Country Meet. To say it […]

Thoughts from the road. I once saw a saying: “Friends are more important than money.” I have to admit I DO believe friends are very valuable, much more so than dollar bills! I’d like to add: “Running Friends are worth far more than gold!” I have heard that running is cheaper than therapy…and I have […]

Thoughts from the road. ONLY… What is this word?? It’s something I consistantly find funny when I hear runners say “I ONLY ran…X number of miles!” What is it about runners that makes us discount distances as if there is always more that can be done?? At what point is it ONLY A MILE, ONLY A 5K, ONLY A 1/2, ONLY A MARATHON??? Is there always […]
