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!”

Runners Doing Good to Again Run to Benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne

While we work to formally organize the team as a non-profit entity, it would be easy to say that we should take ’20 off, at least until everything is set because it’d be easier, but when you’ve built a reputation based on running 200 mile relay races, stepping away from a challenge isn’t an option.Continue reading “Runners Doing Good to Again Run to Benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne”

2020’s Vision, Part II

As highlighted in Part I one of the goals was to have a race calendar so that 2020’s effort isn’t confined to 1 major event and anything else in the area is training for it.  In our effort to better connect with the Fort Wayne area running community, we’re committed to making our miles countContinue reading “2020’s Vision, Part II”

“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”

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!!!”

The Inspiration For Change, Part II

I had a short conversation with my dad this weekend about the team and it only backed up another one of those hunches that I’ve had been having for some time.  For all of the success we’d had, there was something that, I felt, that was ultimately always going to hold us back.  It’s alsoContinue reading “The Inspiration For Change, Part II”

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”

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.”

Runnin’ Not Walken Update!

Ragnar Registration Day has been one of the most exciting days of the year for me.  It bears with it the promise of adventure.  It’s a feeling both exhilarating and daunting. Sometimes I find myself busting at the seams with exuberance as I’m so ready to hit the road with the teams.  Each year andContinue reading “Runnin’ Not Walken Update!”
