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”

Good-Bye 2018! Hello 2019! – Part 2

From a running standpoint, 2018 was in many ways a great year.  It had ups and downs, naturally, but for the most part, it was a fantastic year. Runnin’ Not Walken achieved a level of fundraising that I didn’t think was possible, at least not for a long time.  The support we had was remarkable. Continue reading “Good-Bye 2018!

Good-Bye 2018! Hello 2019! – Part 1

Good morning!  Gabe here.  Today is New Year’s Eve and it is hard to believe that we’re mere hours from putting 2018 to bed and stepping foot into 2019.  It seems like this past year has really flown by.  It has personally been quite the roller coaster of a year after a 2017 that wasContinue reading “Good-Bye 2018!

MeetContinue reading “Run-Gooder #6 – Michelle”

How Do You Stay Motivated?

It’s mid-December and Thanksgiving is a couple weeks ago, the holiday parties are commencing, and Christmas and New Years are looming and it begs the question: How do you stay motivated?  Here in NE Indiana, the snow isn’t exactly flying but we’ve seen the sun maybe 5 times in the last 50-some days.  I wishContinue reading “How Do You Stay Motivated?”

Run-Gooder #5 – Matt

I have known Matt since we were both in college back in the early 2000’s and worked at a Lowe’s store here in Fort Wayne.  I always got along with Matt but I don’t recall a lot of details about him.  He’d always been a good guy as far as I knew.  Time passes andContinue reading “Run-Gooder #5 – Matt”
