I’m not a city runner

I’ve known this for awhile, but I’m not a city runner.  The problem is that I always end up in cities and I can’t help but need to run.  So, either I have to adjust or I have to find those places that make you feel like you aren’t in a city.  I found that …

Reflecting Waters

There’s something about running beside water.  I look out and see the reflecting light.  I look out and see the man fishing.  I look out and see the dog sniffing.  I look out and see.  My eyes are open to the people and the world that surrounds me and I can’t help but feel fuller …

Biltmore Trails

I have to admit that I get in the habit of running the same trails again and again.  They are comfortable and easy to handle and honestly, I tend to get lost or roam around when I am trying out a new trail. I always end up back where I meant to be, but sometimes …

Rounding the Corner

It’s hard when you are on a regular running route and you come to a corner that you know leads to a hill. There’s no way to avoid it. Somehow when you started this familiar trek, you conveniently forgot about that hill that awaited you.  So you have to make a choice: do you turn …

Have you tried this?

Any runners out there tried a sleeve like this? Does it help prevent further injury?

2 Miles, No Pain!

While this may not some like an accomplishment for those runners out there training for your Fall half marathons, this is a huge milestone for me.  For the past year, every time I have run, I have had to fight and struggle with some kind of pain or ache. Maybe it had to do with …
