WRD – Week 33 Noah Called

Tweet Week 8 of 16 Chicago Marathon training is a done deal. I’m halfway and I feel about a quarter ready to take on the distance. I’m not going to dwell too much on the negative that I feel, because I know it does not help me. Pushing onwards. You know how you shouldn’t compare…

WRD: Week 30 – Stronger

WRD: Catching Up Week 19+20

Runner’s Spotlight: Meet Missy

Tweet This week I’m talking to Missy; she started running after she’d lost some weight to then further supplement her weight loss. She’s lost 90 lbs in total! While I hadn’t lost any weight at all (I just started at 100KG / 220 lbs) I do know that original mindset of running to lose weight…

WRD:: Weeks 12 + 13

Tweet As you know or may have noticed, I missed the Weekly Run Down last week because I was in the process of moving my blog to a new host as well as updating the name of the url. So I’ll try to keep this short and sweet, which shouldn’t be too hard considering week…
