Showtime

Last weekend was the 'Season 52' 5k run in Winter Park. Next weekend it's the Winter's Garden 10k . Am I ready ? We all know the answer to that.  It's a longer race and I'm just fine with that. A runner is always prepared.  Running is what we do. See you there.



Staying ready is what drives us!  Until next time, stay safe.

End of an Era.

   After thirty- seven years and over a 100,000 miles, I'm reasonable
sure that today was my last 5k. 'An end of an era'. I'm leaving the
fast running to the younger crowd. Don't get me wrong. You can
run them year-round. However, if you are a competitor, you have
to realize your limitations. Running a 5k is taxing, not to mention
the hugh crowds and the narrow streets . It's time for me to concentrate
on longer distances. If you happen to see me at a 5k event in the future,
you can be reasonably sure that I'm just out for a jog or walking.

An end signals a new beginning !     Until next time, stay safe.

Think

Believe that you can run farther or faster.
Believe that you're young enough, old
enough, strong enough ,and so on to
accomplish everything you want to do.
Don't let worn- out beliefs stop you
from moving beyond yourself.

                                          John Bingham

Belief that the best is always yet to come!     Until next time, stay safe.

Ease on down the road

There are days when you're bound to be off your game and
you feel as if a run would put you in ICU or the family's plot.
Not to fret. Just lace up and start walking. When the zombie
 feeling disappears, start running. Ease into it.


No need to carry a heavy load!   Until next time, stay safe.

Nothing But A Number

We've all heard the old saying 'Age is just a number'.
As Mark Twain once said "Age is an issue of mind over
matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter" I've been
blessed to be able to run all my life. I was always running.
Running to something or away from something, I just ran. Now
I run for enjoyment. I guess I'll be running until my number
is up. I pray that it's not today." It's my birthday!" Gotta go.
My running shoes are waiting. "peace out."

Numbers matter on bank statements!   Until next time, stay safe.

Blast from the past

Two of my music players from back in the day.
Surprisingly, they worked pretty well. I remember
blasting the Bar-Kay's 'Shake Your Rump To The Funk.'
and the Isley Brothers  ' For The Love Of You.'  Those
were the good old days. Wait a minute. What am I saying!
' The good old days' I blasted them on my run today.
The Sony Walkman disc. It replaced my cassette
walkman. Couldn't make my long runs without
them. Enjoy life, 'Run'. Can you dig.

 Create your memories!   Until next time, stay safe.

Running smart

Keep in mind that those new Hoka's I have are designed for comfort and not for speed.  If running fast is your thing, stick with what you have. However, if you have issues with your knees, you might want to
move up to the cushioning department. The longer you run, the more your joints will appreciate being on cloud nine.

Run smart!  Until next time, stay safe.

Cloud Nine


I just purchased a pair of running shoes.
and buyer's remorse has started to set in. To
afraid to get them dirty. Might have paid
to much. They look funny on my feet. My
mind is foggy. Why is this happening, they're
just running shoes. No they're not! They are
the Lamborghini of runnineg shoes. "Hoka
Bondi 4s ." They are the best cushioned
shoes I've ever owned. Check them out. They
look a little different and takes some getting use to
Nevertheless, they are a trip to Cloud Nine!



Dare to be different!   Until next time, stay safe.

The Big Three


Enhance your running experience by adding some fun gadgets.
Being old school, I don't like running with my phone.
First of all, I'm afraid it will get wet and electrocute me.
Secondly, if you trip and fall, say goodbye to it and hello
to your cellular carrier. I run with an ipod. Been using one
for years. All my favorite songs tucked away is playlists, five
hundred of them to be exact. Pair it with some wireless earbuds and
clip it to your shorts and you're all set. Why not go all out, invest in
a GPS running watch.You can track your speed, distance, time, heart rate
and other data you'll never need.


Never to old to play with toys!  Until next time, stay safe.

Holiday Fun

January 1st and I'm running my favorite route on the streets in Winter Garden.
How is that so you ask. Well here's what happened. I'm at work toiling away at
my assigned duties and then BAM! I get my first good news of the year. "You can go home early" Out the door, picked up something for diner and I'm in my
running shoes. It's just that easy. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Grab every change you can to stay active!  Until next time, stay safe.
