I like to run everywhere! Whether in the mountains of Colorado or while traveling for work, running is exploring.

Getting experiences out through writings in a book, blog, or social media ensures they live on.

Back on the saddle

2.50 miles — 30:00 While my right foot was still hurting, I decided to try out a new gym and run it. Remember, I am not a professional, so do not try anything I do! There is a large gym near where I work downtown called the Colorado Athletic Club. I went for a tour

Crossing the finish line

13.10 miles — 2:50:52 Someone asked me if I had run out of thoughts and stopped posting here after my runs. The answer is that I haven’t run for 6 weeks … but I ran yesterday in the Denver Half Marathon! I had 3 goals going into the race: 1) Complete the race Check 2)

Variable Constant

5.43 miles — 1:05:00 I haven’t ran since Wednesday due to an intense schedule. This brings me to today’s thoughts that involved schedules. When I run, or do many other things, I like to test out different schedules and patterns to see how it impacts my performance. For running this morning, I went out 2

In the Mountains

Non-Running Day While today is not a scheduled running day, I covered just as much ground in a few hours. The morning started out with an interview phone call at 8a.
