100 Runs In A Row, What I’ve Learned

It takes a special kind of crazy to want to run 100 straight days.  It takes a special kind of crazy to willingly take 10,000 volts to the chest, but I’ve done that too.  Thanks Tough Mudder! Yesterday I did not run, it was the first time in 2018 and while I thought I might miss it, I really didn’t at all!  I enjoyed kicking back with my feet up […]

Today Is # 100

In a few hours I will be heading out for run number 100 in a row, in a challenge I started on back on January 1st.  Talk about the ultimate New Years Resolution!! There are going to be a lot of emotions and feelings floating through my head while I am out there and I am actually very interested to see where my thoughts take me.  I remember vividly during […]

Three Runs To Go!!!!

Unbelievably I only have 3 more runs left to complete in my 100 day running challenge, and the question now shifts from IF I will finish, to HOW I will finish and I’ve thought of a few different scenarios over the past two weeks… it’s a great shame that mother nature just isn’t co-operating with me at this point.  We have had snow all week, and even this morning I’ve […]

Countdown Continues… 8…

Today was run number 93 in a row and once again surprised me. My little one caught the flu over Easter weekend and we both were up a lot last night change blankets, and her barf bowl.  She is feeling better today but we both were very tired today with lot’s of just laying around, especially on her part.  The two day exercise hangover was in full effect with my […]

And Then There Were 9…

To say I’ve been on a roll the last few days might be an understatement, as I finally feel I’ve cleared my head (literally) from a few of the issues that I have had going on in my life over the past month or so.  I am SO ready to drop the hammer down and get life moving back in the direction that I want. My energy level has been […]

And Then There Was 10…

We have officially entered the home stretch as today marked 10 more runs to go, to finally reach the goal of 100 runs in a row, over the course of 100 days.  And what started way back on January 1st has now run (pun intended) its way into April. To say I’ve learned a lot about myself, about drive and determination to see something through would be an understatement.  I […]

100 Day Run Challenge Update

Good afternoon everyone! Today will mark my 89th run in a row, and it almost didn’t happen.  About two weeks ago I started to doubt my ability to finish this challenge.  I was not in a good mental space and was struggling with just getting by with the day to day grind of life.  It took considerable effort just to get out the door and run during runs 76 through […]

The Incurable Left Hamstring…

At some point last November I woke up with a sore left hamstring, and to be truthful it still hasn’t healed fully.  It is not what I will call painful but I am always aware that it is sore, somedays much more than others.  Today being one of those days… Yesterday was day 51 of the 100 day running challenge, and well because I am slightly stupid I decided to […]

100 Days of Running – DAY 50

Many people have expressed to me, including the Nike coach that sometimes whispers in my ear as I run to start off easy and build into the run.  It was a hard lesson for me to learn, and even after all these years I am not sure that I still even get it.  Let me explain, back in 2007 when I was a 234 pound coach potato and had yet […]

100 Day Run Challenge Update – Day 25

So I am a quarter of the way through my 100 day running challenge, and yes it’s a little nuts to even think of going for a run for 100 straight days.  However, barring some kind of injury this is going to happen as it’s a matter of will power, drive and determination moving forward to get it done.  There have been days when I didn’t feel like running at […]
