Ponderings from my Heart

Good morning!  This is going to be more of a thinking-out-loud sort of post. My question for today: What do you do when you're trying to work through something? And does it actually help you to process through that, or is it just a conduit--a guiding point--to get you where you need to be? .... … Continue reading Ponderings from my Heart

It's not like you strap a 4D headset over your eyes and run on a treadmill, though that would be extremely awesome! … Continue reading Sharing Saturday–Virtual Strides

Running streak completed

 Made it through day 81. Total miles: 235.5 I didn't make it up to my 100 days, but after Peru I'm going to try again. There's a good reason, but I don't think I want to give any excuse on here. That gives me a couple weeks to continue running and start doing more strength … Continue reading Running streak completed
