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!

Run-Gooder #6 – Michelle

So the cool thing about doing this blog is that I get to be on the look-out for inspirational people.  Fortunately, there’s an abundance of them but I’m not just looking for anyone who’s remarkable, I’m looking for runners.  Runners just take it up another notch and this one in particular, finds another gear. MeetContinue reading “Run-Gooder #6 – Michelle”

What is a “Run-Gooder”?

It is a do-gooder, that is willing too make their beating of the pavement meaningful.  It’s sacrificing hours of training, the aches, pains, and hard earned sweat that accompanies it all, all for the greater good of others in some fashion. That all said, it’s not just elite runners participating in a marathon to raiseContinue reading “What is a “Run-Gooder”?”

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”

Run-Gooder #3 – Tim

“If runners don’t support each other, who will?”  – Tim Green. Yea, the very Tim pictured above.  I ran across Tim the first time in 2015.  I had just started Runnin Not Walken and I was pushing the heck out of it on social media hoping to blow this thing up.  I ended up findingContinue reading “Run-Gooder #3 – Tim”

Looking Forward

I saw this off of the “Power of Positivity” Page on Facebook, which is a great follow by the way, and I needed to share it as it’s really appropriate for where I’m at right now. This whole Runners Doing Good thing has been very enjoyable and I’ve found the writing being therapeutic to a degree. Continue reading “Looking Forward”
