Grace found in Small Steps

The other day I was listening to the Rich Roll Podcast and his interview of Zach Bush, MD. You can listen to it here: RichRoll Podcast – Zach Bush, MD There was much to be alarmed about in this podcast, especially in the way our farming and use of pesticides is responsible for much illness and […]

Running with a Cold? A Cautionary Tale

Mile A Day Challenge Update

 I started this challenge 4 years ago as a way to encourage activity. The idea was, and still is, that all of us can find at least 20 minutes a day for exercise. That is how long it takes for the average person to walk a mile For the first three years the challenge was […]

Day by Day – Marathon Recovery

I am continually impressed by the way our bodies are capable of healing themselves. We overwork them to the point of pain, such as in running a marathon. Immediately after  the race the pain starts…or weakness as your legs feel more like jello than anything else. The negative effects will go away. When you make […]

Running Our Public Lands

Last night I listened to a friend, Vic Thasiah, make a call for the running community to be more actively engaged in conservation efforts for our public lands. His presentation took place at Topa Topa Brewing Company, and since I was holding a beer while listening, I missed taking notes! I wish I had because […]
