Sponsor #2 – OmniSource!

It is awesome how things work. Good things tend to come in bunches! Within a day or so of getting a commitment from Sue and Coldwell Banker, I received one from OmniSource and Mike Franio, who are again, another multi-year supporter of our team. OmniSource has now supported us for 4 years now and aContinue reading “Sponsor #2 – OmniSource!”

Keeping Fort Wayne Warm

  Just had to share this great video that NeighborLink Fort Wayne produced.  It really shows what they’re about and where the money we raised in 2019 went.  It was great to see that our funds were both heartwarming and home-warming! We’ve begun our campaign for them already.  If you’d like to contribute, please visitContinue reading “Keeping Fort Wayne Warm”

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”

A Runner Looks at 40

I’m not there yet but tomorrow’s my birthday and as my wife like’s to remind me, it’s a big one because it’s the last of my 30’s.  She makes me laugh.  I had one coworker this week tell me that 39 was his worst birthday and he freaked out and bought a mustang.  I’m prettyContinue reading “A Runner Looks at 40”

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!!!”

Taking Aim

“If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.” – Zig Ziglar I have taken the last month or so off of social media and blogging for the most part.  There’s been some work so that the accounts can function during that time but man was it nice to step away and reallyContinue reading “Taking Aim”

What If Wednesday

I saw this picture the other day and it stuck with me a bit.  I’ve had a lot on my mind with Runnin’ Not Walken and wanting the team to succeed and so far it largely has.  We still have some big goals to hit but with our 5th year coming up next year, it’sContinue reading “What If Wednesday”

Runnin’Not Walken Update 5/8

I just wanted to touch base since it’s been a minute or two to update everyone on what’s going on with Runnin’ Not Walken. We have seen a few members of the team participate in some big races of late. Three of the team’s newest runners, Matt and Amanda Herald, and  Kelly Kreischer all participatedContinue reading “Runnin’Not Walken Update 5/8”
