Top 11 Runners – #8 Matt

According to a definition of hardcore it is: “the most active, committed, or strict members of a group or movement.” That sums up what I think of Matt. He is a hardcore runner and proud of it. He should be because he’s come a long way over the last several years. After deciding a changeContinue reading “Top 11 Runners – #8 Matt”

Top 11 Runners – #9 Greg

At 37.8 Miles, the 2nd highest average per race mileage, and one of the very fastest runners we’ve ever had, Greg comes in at 9th in our Top 11 runners of Runnin’ Not Walken. Greg was awesome to have on the team, along with his brothers that joined us for 2 years, ’16-’17. The SchortgenContinue reading “Top 11 Runners – #9 Greg”

I Miss My Team

All of this time off and races cancelled and it’s gotten me thinking about what I’ve missed this year. It was supposed to have been a big year. I had put some lofty goals for myself out there and largely, I’ve not gotten close. Between the pandemic and everything going on, admittedly, my motivation hasContinue reading “I Miss My Team”

RDG’s Top 10 – #5 Pre-Race Meal in ’18 & ’19

This picture was taken from dinner this past year in Whitehall, MI. I rate these two dinners so highly because they really were the beginning of another phase for the team. We’ve had change on the team and I think that’s something which brings growth. For us though, from ’17 to ’18, the team reallyContinue reading “RDG’s Top 10 – #5 Pre-Race Meal in ’18 & ’19”

RDG’s Top 10 – #7 Night Moves ’19

NeighborLink Fort Wayne‘s Night Moves series of runs is pretty awesome.

You can find a review of that raceContinue reading “RDG’s Top 10 – #7 Night Moves ’19”

With so little going on of late, there’s not much to chat about so I thought I’d start a series of posts about Runners Doing Good, formerly Runnin’ Not Walken’s, Top 10 moments from the last 5 years. Granted most of these will be through my eyes but then again, I’m the oneContinue reading “Runners Doing Good’s Top 10 Countdown”

One Week To Go!!!!

It has been a CRAZY month to say the least but we are 1 week away from finishing our kick-off Matching opportunity. Things have slowed down a good bit as people are trying to find their footing with the Coronavirus but there’s something I can’t stress enough, non-profits aren’t taking time off right now. NeighborLinkContinue reading “One Week To Go!!!!”

On Daring Greatly

“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly … who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly” – Teddy Roosevelt I went through a leadership training course this past year and the aboveContinue reading “On Daring Greatly”
