Runners Doing Good Runs The Fort!

Uncle Sam’s right……WE WANT YOU! Since 2015, we’ve hitched our wagon to large scale, long distance relay races as a way to say, “Support us because we’re doing something epic” but with the state of affairs in the world this year, we’re not going to be able to participate in Ragnar Trail Michigan, which wasContinue reading “Runners Doing Good Runs The Fort!”

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!!!”

Ragnar Trail Michigan Officially Postponed

It’s with a good bit of disappointment that we officially announce that Ragnar Trail Michigan has officially been postponed. Even more of a bummer is that the dates that it’s now scheduled is one that most of the team can not attend or in light of our current status, willing to give up: Labor DayContinue reading “Ragnar Trail Michigan Officially Postponed”

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”

2020’s Vision

“Never limit your vision based on your current resources” — Michael Hyatt That quote couldn’t ring more true right now.  Currently, as a team, we have approximately $29.48 to our name as a result of the 13 Runners Doing Good wristbands that we’ve sold so far.  Yes, we’ve covered our upfront costs on that investmentContinue reading “2020’s Vision”

“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”

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”

Taking Aim

“If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.” – Zig Ziglar I have taken the last month or so off of social media and blogging for the most part.  There’s been some work so that the accounts can function during that time but man was it nice to step away and reallyContinue reading “Taking Aim”

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!”
