#HalforBust – Just Do Something

This winter has been brutal. There have been so many days I've wanted to go outside and run, but couldn't because of the weather. I know what some of you are thinking - suck it up and put on a coat. Well, I do that when the roads are not sheets of ice. I've fallen … Continue reading #HalforBust – Just Do Something


I am at my best physically when I am faithful in my running. I love the various aspects of being a runner - the health benefits, the gadgets and gear, the effect on my stamina and state of mind, getting outside. But my faithfulness wavered for a while when the weather turned cold. Bottom line: … Continue reading #HalforBust

Surrounded by Drywall

I like to listen to podcasts of sermons during my morning run.  It is the only time where I can listen with enough focus, and also when I desperately want to tune out the sound of me breathing. Yesterday morning,  I listened to Francis Chan preaching from Revelation. Francis is one of my favorite preachers,  … Continue reading Surrounded by Drywall

Fitness With Apps – Eyes on the Horizon

As I continue my course as a runner, I am endeavoring to learn more about technique, fitness, nutrition, and the science of running. I am trying to read more about it, and as I do, I continue to find that many of the truths about running are applicable to everyday. For instance, the other day, … Continue reading Fitness With Apps – Eyes on the Horizon

Stretching Out Spiritually for a Long Distance, Enduring Faith

As I progress as a runner, I am learning that a good amount of my time is spent on injury management. Running really isn't about whether or not you will get hurt... it's about how badly you'll hurt and what you do to push through it. Of course, it doesn't help that I recently had a … Continue reading Stretching Out Spiritually for a Long Distance, Enduring Faith

As promised, here are pics from my first ever 5K, the Midsummer Night's Run 2012 in Lexington, Kentucky...   The walk from our parking place. Water! The line to get our shirts.

Well, my first 5K race is this evening. As I've written before, I am running in the Midsummer Night's Run in Lexington, Kentucky this evening. I'm excited! I have been looking forward to this race ever since I decided to do it. I'm not looking to win the thing. but I doubt I'll be last, … Continue reading #5Korbust – Today Is the Day

#5Korbust – Nervous and Not Sure Why

As the day draws near to my first ever 5K race, I am getting nervous. And I'm not really sure why. I have never been... well... fast. Ever. I was a slow runner as a kid, an artsy teen, and an obese young adult. Not fast. I know in my head that I'm not "racing" … Continue reading #5Korbust – Nervous and Not Sure Why

Fitness with Apps Part 3 – Desire

I had something of a breakthrough in my 5K training today (check out the other Fitness with Apps posts here and here). I've been semi-laid-up all week. Had the makings of a cold. Whenever I get a cold, it settles right on my throat and I can't talk for a week. Since I spend my … Continue reading Fitness with Apps Part 3 – Desire
