WHERE IS YOUR VOICE?

WHERE IS YOUR VOICE?

Greetings from New Orleans!  The curfew is lifted.  The storm, Isaac, has passed and all except about 100,000 people have electricity today.  I am fortunate to be in a region near a major hospital and businesses.  These places had their current turned on first.

Sometimes You Have To Mix It Up

Sometimes You Have To Mix It Up

Today I did not check the forecast before I headed over to Lafreniere Park.  In a robotic mode I woke up early this morning, quickly got dressed, slapped a visor cap on my head, and hit the road. I kept my foggy eyes peeled on the road and not the sky. On arriving at the(…)

LET YOUR OBSTACLES BE YOUR SPRINGBOARD!

I woke up early this morning to run, but the sun soon came out strong and as usual, posed a challenge.   If I didn’t have the serious resolve for health and for running, and was not committed to my training for a half marathon in Lisbon, Portugal this coming September, I would have quit and(…)
