RDG’s Top 10 – #6 Shake N Bake ’15

These two. There’s so much about that 2015 team and the experience that I look back on and smile. I think the newness of it all was something that made it special. No one, and I mean no one had an idea of what it’d be like really. We saw Ragnar Relay as something thatContinue reading “RDG’s Top 10 – #6 Shake N Bake ’15”

RDG’s Top 10 – #7 Night Moves ’19

NeighborLink Fort Wayne‘s Night Moves series of runs is pretty awesome. Being that 2019 was our first year running to benefit them, we wanted to make sure that we were able to participate in some of the events that they were putting on and we LOVED IT. You can find a review of that raceContinue reading “RDG’s Top 10 – #7 Night Moves ’19”

RDG’s Top 10 – #8 Courtney’s Kick-Off ’15

Year 1 was so special and different aspects of that first race will always be something that be near and dear to my heart. Courtney’s beginning here is really the culmination of a lot of hard work by the team to get ready, a lot of hard work in fundraising, and a ton of nervesContinue reading “RDG’s Top 10 – #8 Courtney’s Kick-Off ’15”

RDG’s Top 10 – #9 – Brandon’s Helmet Run ’15

This still makes me laugh to this day. Brandon had brought a cowboy hat to wear during the race and a lot of people had funny hats. He even brought one of his old football helmets. We were having a blast with the race and I simply thought he’d wear it somewhere along the wayContinue reading “RDG’s Top 10 – #9 – Brandon’s Helmet Run ’15”

RDG’s Top 10 – #10 ’19’s Night Runs

None of these accurately show just how tough the night runs can be during a Ragnar. The reason this comes in at #10 isn’t because it wasn’t hard. It’s more that there were so many other moments that come in that I’d rank higher. It’s been a full 5 years of running and fundraising andContinue reading “RDG’s Top 10 – #10 ’19’s Night Runs”

Runners Doing Good’s Top 10 Countdown

Good morning! With so little going on of late, there’s not much to chat about so I thought I’d start a series of posts about Runners Doing Good, formerly Runnin’ Not Walken’s, Top 10 moments from the last 5 years. Granted most of these will be through my eyes but then again, I’m the oneContinue reading “Runners Doing Good’s Top 10 Countdown”

RDG’s Self Sustaining Goal

In the article from the other day, one of the team goals was to become self-sustaining. That’s not an easy thing to become when you’re a group of runners, doing this for fun, but with a purpose. We’re not a Non-Profit who can go out there, organize, and bring in donations that benefit us directly.Continue reading “RDG’s Self Sustaining Goal”

RDG – ’20 so far and a look ahead

Hey everyone! I hope this finds you well. It has been an absolute roller coaster of a year and it just got me thinking about where we started at the beginning of the year, where we’re at now, and where we’re going. We’re only in May but wow, a lot has happened! Where We Started:Continue reading “RDG – ’20 so far and a look ahead”

And So I Ran

Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. – Lou Holtz This blog and site isn’t supposed to be about me. It’s supposed to be about the team and our running and fundraising efforts but since the Covid-19 Pandemic, a lot has been putContinue reading “And So I Ran”

Runners Doing Good Runs The Fort!

Uncle Sam’s right……WE WANT YOU! Since 2015, we’ve hitched our wagon to large scale, long distance relay races as a way to say, “Support us because we’re doing something epic” but with the state of affairs in the world this year, we’re not going to be able to participate in Ragnar Trail Michigan, which wasContinue reading “Runners Doing Good Runs The Fort!”
