Race Recap: Detroit International Marathon 2014

Detroit Marathon Race Recap 2014

“Congratulations! You did it!” The smile in the eyes of this total stranger perfectly matched the beaming grin across her face. I pulled the corners of my own mouth up into an appreciative grin as I lowered my head just enough for her to get the lanyard around it. The medal was heavier than I’d …

Running a Marathon Didn’t Change My Life

Running a Marathon Didn't Change My Life

With legs of jelly and pain in places that I didn’t realize I had places, I’ll never forget turning that final corner. Wiping away the stinging combination of sweat and disbelief, two things simultaneously came into focus that, just a few minutes earlier, I was sure I’d never see again. Yet, with every step, my …

Race Recap: Detroit Marathon 2013

So often when I’m working through an idea for a post here, I lock into a concept and then try to find clever ways to slowly unwrap it for you.  Kind of a verbal striptease with my excessive use of ellipses being the grammatical pasties that cover up my real intentions.  It’s a little verbal …

The Most Powerful Verb

I was already well into the third mile when the sun finally started peeking above the horizon.  This past Saturday morning, like the dozen before it, I quietly left the house in the pitch black stillness that you only seem to find at “stupid o’clock”.  The kids were still sawing logs in their rooms as …

Freedom

I snuck out the door this 4th of July morning as the sun was still coming up.  The Wife and kids still tucked away in bed likely thinking about the colorful parade and bountiful cookout that would fill their Independence Day.  With my ear buds in and my injured foot nursed back to about 85%, …

Outbreak

Last Saturday, me and about 150 of my “closest friends” that I’ll be running the marathon with this October (shout out to Team World Vision!) gathered in a local city for the first of what will be weekly group training runs from now until the event.  Smaller groups have been popping up over the weeks …

Toehold

As I enter Week 5 of my base training for my first Marathon this fall, I’ve hit a little stumbling point on my path.  Not sure when it happened, how it happened, or, to be quite honest, what exactly happened, but I’ve injured my big toe.  Well, not the toe exactly, the joint that has …

A Pledge For A Pledge

When I told you a couple of weeks ago that I had committed to running my first marathon in October, I gave you fair warning that I was bringing you along on the journey.  I told you there would be talk of the training.  I cautioned you that the tough times would be mentioned.  I …

It’s Not A Sprint…

On June 17, 2007, I did something that a few years prior I could have never imagined would happened.  Through no hostage taking, threats of bodily harm or blackmail of any kind, I willing entered a finished my very first 5K.  Though already into the early days of my “remodel”, I was a Bieber-and-a-half over …
