A hard Habit to Break

   Make running a habit. By doing so, it will become second nature and much more enjoyable. And the peaks, you will look great, feel great and you can eat a little of everything. See what I mean! Two weeks on vacation and didn't gain a pound. Even had my mom's famous spaghetti. Start today. It's never to late.

Run strong, live long. Until next time, stay safe.

One Last Run

 Had one last run this morning. Time to leave. Had a wonderful time visting with my beautiful mom, Emma Thompson. The best mom it the world. Much fun with my son Matthew. Just wondering what city I'll be running in next year. Wherever it may be, I know I'll enjoy it.  I think I'll schedule my vacation to run Peachtree in Atlanta. Just a thought. Remember to always take your running shoes on vacation with you.

What a vacation!  Until next time, stay safe.

Lets Start The Dance.

This morning's run was fast. Went all out. No time to enjoy the scenery. All business. Felt great afterward. Overwhelming sense of satisfaction. Back on point. Let the racing season begin. Always be ready for the big rodeo.

All about getting down!   Until next time, stay safe.

City Streets

 This morning's run took me once again alone the riverfront, Can't get enough of that river, right? But guess what? On the run back, I ran the city streets and discovered a few wonderful new shops and restaurants. Change it up once and a while. Go ahead, be adventurous. You'll be glad you did.

Summer in the city!  Until next time, stay safe.

Rolling On The Riverfront

An early morning run on the riverfront, how exhilarating. The breeze, the boats on the river, the sounds of  birds chirping, and the friendly greetings from fellow runners. Not a care in the world. I'm on vacation and enjoying every run. Always remember to make time for the things you love.

Rolling, rolling on the riverfront!  Until next time, stay safe.

Holiday Fun

Just finished an afternoon run.  It's July 4th. I had the road to myself. Just me, my music and the scenery. That my friend is holiday fun.

Make your own fireworks! Until next time,  stay safe.

Hot Fun In The Summertime

It's ninety degrees before noon. That's how summers are in Florida. No need to carry a water bottle. It'll be as hot as a cup of coffee before your first mile. If you must run in those conditions, start hydrating before you leave, dress light, keep your run short or take routes that takes you past a water fountain. Remember to use your sunscreen.

The Heat Is On!  Until next time, stay safe.
