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 – #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”

This Is What It Is About!

  When we first made the decision to partner with NeighborLink Fort Wayne , it wasn’t an easy decision.  We’d been running to benefit a local children’s charity for 3 years, having run 4 long distance relay races to benefit them and had raised approximately $17,000 for them. We started slowly but every year builtContinue reading “This Is What It Is About!”

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!!!”

My List of Thanks

It’s never a bad time to reflect on what makes us thankful.  A year of progress, new friends, accomplishments, struggles, failures, and lessons learned all fit within that but it can be especially powerful as we approach the end of the year to focus on what makes us thankful.  We can focus on things weContinue reading “My List of Thanks”

Inspiration for Change, Part III

A year ago at this time, I was really unsure of what the next step for Runnin’ Not Walken would end up being.  I had made the devastating decision to walk away from Kate’s Kart, the board there, and all that the team and I had built that had revolved around them.  I felt thenContinue reading “Inspiration for Change, Part III”

The Inspiration For Change, Part I

If you can dream it, you can do it.  Always remember that this whole thing started off with a dream and a mouse. — Walt Disney Through the rest of the year, I will occasionally write about what has inspired me to change course and aim for something bigger with the running team.  We haveContinue reading “The Inspiration For Change, Part I”

The Rock: Bring Everyone With You

I saw this today and while this isn’t really a running related video clip, I love the message and couldn’t help but share a few thoughts on it and how I feel it relates to what RNW and I are doing. I share this because there’s a lot of negativity in the world and ifContinue reading “The Rock: Bring Everyone With You”
