Hello Running Friends, It’s the third week of the new year…how are you doing on your ‘Get Fit’ goals? Studies have shown this is about the time when new runners and gym goers start to waffle on their resolutions, habits and/or routines. I understand, having gone through the same experience in the past. I’d set out on Day 1 of a new year with routines that featured either too fuzzy, no real end-goal type of scenarios – ” I’ve got to get to the gym for more cross training this year” . Or on the flip side, an extreme goal such as, ” I will completely eliminate all sugar and caffeine from my diet starting today.” What do you think…were either of those ‘goals’ likely to happen? As you might imagine, I failed with those resolutions along with many others over the years. Can you relate to that experience

And racing in the Bulow Woods Half Marathon this past weekend was the highlight of 2014. By my running attire, I bet you’d never guess it was a damp, cold 37 degrees in Ormond Beach on race day.
Hi There Running Friends! Slightly different post this time around – sharing my race report from the inaugural Echo Half Marathon this past Sunday and also insights about the event from Final Mile Race Management owner, Jennifer Florida. The Echo Half was my first race of 2014. That’s unusual for me since in the past, early spring has typically been a busy time for racing
A friend of mine just completed the Dopey Challenge at the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon this past weekend. In a four day time span, he completed a 5-K on Thursday,10-K on Friday, a Half Marathon on Saturday and full Marathon on Sunday, equaling a total of 48.6 miles! ! Talk about commitment, dedication and endurance.
