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”

Run-Gooder – Amanda S.

A journey of 200-ish miles begins…. — Artie I loved this picture so I had to share it but there’s a lot more to this picture.  Amanda is the wife of fellow run-gooder and multiple time driver, Artie.  Over the last year, she’s worked very hard to lose weight and she’s done a fantastic job.  SheContinue reading “Run-Gooder – Amanda S.”

Why Ragnar?

Why do we run Ragnar Relays to benefit charity?  The answer is because you can’t do epic alone.  It wasn’t always that way though.  In the very beginning, the hope was to prove we could physically pull it off. To the uninitiated, a Ragnar Relay is a 12 person, approximately 200-ish mile relay style race. Continue reading “Why Ragnar?”

On Motivation

My friends, we are not the sum of our possessions. They are not the measure of our lives. In our hearts we know what matters. We cannot hope only to leave our children a bigger car, a bigger bank account. We must hope to give them a sense of what it means to be aContinue reading “On Motivation”

Run-Gooder #11 – Gabe Grunewald

When I started the Runners Doing Good Instagram account, I wanted to tell some stories of people overcoming obstacles, choosing to live a healthier life, or achieving something incredible…all with the idea that some runner somewhere might be inspired. It has been tremendously worthwhile and rewarding, especially when the person and their story somehow findContinue reading “Run-Gooder #11 – Gabe Grunewald”

Tuesday Truth – Be Intentional

“Intention + Action = Magic” I’ve had the good fortune of taking part in a leadership development course through my employer over the last 5 or 6 months and the phrase “intentional” has come up a lot when we’ve discussed servant leadership.  I’ve also gone to two, 1-hour talks as part of a week long,Continue reading “Tuesday Truth – Be Intentional”
