Runners Doing Good’s Top 10 Countdown

Good morning! 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”

And So I Ran

Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. – Lou Holtz This blog and site isn’t supposed to be about me. It’s supposed to be about the team and our running and fundraising efforts but since the Covid-19 Pandemic, a lot has been putContinue reading “And So I Ran”

The Numbers Are In!!!

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re doing well. After Monday’s disappointing news regarding Ragnar Trail Michigan being postponed and our differing to 2021, I wanted to share with you some good news. After our March Matching opportunity, we have officially now raised $2,932 to benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne! It’s remarkable that we hit this numberContinue reading “The Numbers Are In!!!”

Keeping Fort Wayne Warm

  Just had to share this great video that NeighborLink Fort Wayne produced.  It really shows what they’re about and where the money we raised in 2019 went.  It was great to see that our funds were both heartwarming and home-warming! We’ve begun our campaign for them already.  If you’d like to contribute, please visitContinue reading “Keeping Fort Wayne Warm”

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!”

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”

Inspiration for Change, Part III

A year ago at this time, I was really unsure of what the next step for Runnin’ Not Walken would end up being.  I had made the devastating decision to walk away from Kate’s Kart, the board there, and all that the team and I had built that had revolved around them.  I felt thenContinue reading “Inspiration for Change, Part III”

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 #10 – Karl

The Rock: Bring Everyone With You

I saw this today and while this isn’t really a running related video clip, I love the message and couldn’t help but share a few thoughts on it and how I feel it relates to what RNW and I are doing. I share this because there’s a lot of negativity in the world and ifContinue reading “The Rock: Bring Everyone With You”
