Runnin’ Not Walken to Run to Benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne!!!

It is official.  It was once inconceivable that we’d ever change causes of choice but sometimes in order to grow, you need to do something different and right now, I am very excited with our decision. For a second, I’d like to take a step back and explain the process.  Once I made the decisionContinue reading “Runnin’ Not Walken to Run to Benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne!!!”

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!

  As 2018 winds down and 2019 approaches and the blog has continued on, we’ve had a decent little following begin and it has kept me thinking of who to feature next and Artie came to mind.  Has he been a lifetime runner?  No, but he has been one of the biggest supporters of TeamContinue reading “Run-Gooder #7 – Artie”

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”

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?”

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”
