I’m Back! Now For Some Thoughts…

I had the chance to run through the woods and trails of Clifty Falls State Park and I had some thoughts about 2020 and what’s next and I’d love your feedback.

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”

Back on the Right Path!

The last week or so, I’ve had been thinking about a lot about the direction of Runnin’ Not Walken and Runners Doing Good.  This November will be the anniversary of the first year of the blog and we’re less than 6 months from the 5th anniversary of the running team being founded.  A lot ofContinue reading “Back on the Right Path!”

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”

Happy February!

I saw this the other day and it got me thinking and I just had to share.  It’s a pretty simple message but it’s the kind of thing that can turn into a pretty inspirational message for our efforts here, maybe even a mission statement: To Be A Light of Hope & Encouragement for RunnersContinue reading “Happy February!”

Reflection Friday…

It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop – Confucius Happy Friday!  Today is January 25th and the first month of the year is almost in the books.  It is remarkable how quickly time flies nowadays.  As we bring this month to a close, or anything for thatContinue reading “Reflection Friday…”
