A Runner Looks at 40

I’m not there yet but tomorrow’s my birthday and as my wife like’s to remind me, it’s a big one because it’s the last of my 30’s.  She makes me laugh.  I had one coworker this week tell me that 39 was his worst birthday and he freaked out and bought a mustang.  I’m prettyContinue reading “A Runner Looks at 40”

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.

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”
