Runners Doing Good to Again Run to Benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne

While we work to formally organize the team as a non-profit entity, it would be easy to say that we should take ’20 off, at least until everything is set because it’d be easier, but when you’ve built a reputation based on running 200 mile relay races, stepping away from a challenge isn’t an option.Continue reading “Runners Doing Good to Again Run to Benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne”

2020’s Vision, Part II

As highlighted in Part I one of the goals was to have a race calendar so that 2020’s effort isn’t confined to 1 major event and anything else in the area is training for it.  In our effort to better connect with the Fort Wayne area running community, we’re committed to making our miles countContinue reading “2020’s Vision, Part II”

On Daring Greatly

“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly … who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly” – Teddy Roosevelt I went through a leadership training course this past year and the aboveContinue reading “On Daring Greatly”

Runnin’ Not Walken is now….Runners Doing Good!!!

We’ve been on this trajectory for some time so the beginning of December seems like a great time to kick this off!  We have eluded to it for awhile and the name change has been in plain sight as this blog has existed for awhile now. In the recent past, this site floated back andContinue reading “Runnin’ Not Walken is now….Runners Doing Good!!!”

Why Ragnar?

Why do we run Ragnar Relays to benefit charity?  The answer is because you can’t do epic alone.  It wasn’t always that way though.  In the very beginning, the hope was to prove we could physically pull it off. To the uninitiated, a Ragnar Relay is a 12 person, approximately 200-ish mile relay style race. Continue reading “Why Ragnar?”

Run-Gooder #11 – Gabe Grunewald

When I started the Runners Doing Good Instagram account, I wanted to tell some stories of people overcoming obstacles, choosing to live a healthier life, or achieving something incredible…all with the idea that some runner somewhere might be inspired. It has been tremendously worthwhile and rewarding, especially when the person and their story somehow findContinue reading “Run-Gooder #11 – Gabe Grunewald”

Sunday Inspiration #3 – Ride for Roz

Admittedly, I’m late to the game here.  The Chive and Chive Charities have been around awhile now but over the last year or so I’ve really noticed the work they’re doing.  They cover a wide range of things.  Growing up in Fort Wayne, IN and having gone to Bishop Dwenger High School….I should have knownContinue reading “Sunday Inspiration #3 – Ride for Roz”

Run-Gooder #10 – Karl

Please note, this article was run on February 5th.  Karl had about 85% of his monetary goal met at that point and had 3 races to go.  He’s down to 2 races and is only 6% away from his goal.  Please read his story once more and if you feel moved, please consider giving toContinue reading “Run-Gooder #10 – Karl”

Work Hard. Do Good. Love Wins

Life’s most urgent and persistent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ – Martin Luther King, Jr. I just had to share this because when you make changes, sometimes there’s worry that creeps in on whether you’re doing the right thing or not.  As a whole, our team, even those that aren’t coming back,Continue reading “Work Hard. Do Good. Love Wins”
