Early morning runs

 Remember that early morning runs should be done in safe areas. Be aware that an occasional rabbit or other small creatures will dart across your path. Fret not, they are doing their own thing and have no interest in you at all. That curled black object you see at a distance, a piece of rubber, not a snake. So keep enjoying and watch how quickly the miles pass.

Wow! look at that sunrise.O_O

Roll with the punches

 Due to a change in my work assignment, I'm exhausted by the time I reach home. No more evening runs for now. No problem. I've pass this way before. I'm up again at 3:30am, on the road by 4am. Wow! how refreshing . It's cool, quiet, and best of all, no traffic. Always be ready to roll with the punches. By the way did I tell you my job starts at 7am.

Now stick and Jab!

I'm up for a 3am run. Not bad for 50+ right?.

Summer vacation is here again. It's time to take that much needed break. No job, no grass and no neighbors. Leave everything behind. Just remember to take the wife, the kids, the dog and your running shoes.

Enjoy! see you on the road.

Passion + focus = results!

Rest days are as important as training days. They give your muscles time to recover so you can run again. Actually, your muscles will build in strength as you rest. Without recovery days, you will not improve.

Relax, take a day of. It's ok!
