Daunting Challenges

I was recently asked a question about overcoming challenges in an interview and thought I’d share my answer here in the blog. : ) Enjoy!   What do you do to prepare for a challenge so daunting, like MS Run the US? I focus on three tasks at a time.  I think life in general can be daunting if you…

Make It Real

I’ve run the finish of the MS Run the US – 2013 Relay before. I’ve run it thousands of times. The clarity of the experience is so vivid that I can feel the breeze rush across my face as my hands grip the adult disability stroller carrying my mom in front of me. I see the George Washington Bridge rise…

In My Head

Being that it’s the final month of the inaugural MS Run the US 2013 Relay I know I should be blogging more, updating more, sharing more pictures, sharing more stories… I’m just not though, not as much as I would like.  I living day-to-day in my head while I help each of these Relay runners through a grueling running/fundraising task.…

My Favorite Place

The Relay moves forward every day and with it, so do I.  It was a quick week up, through, and over the Rocky Mountains into Denver, CO and before I knew it I as entering the eastern Colorado view of the great open Plains (think Nebraska).  After such a scenic 9-days with Bill over the Rockies, I honestly and openly…

Just. Love.

Who are you to judge? Just love. You run. You run because… You run to be connected, so you share. Just love. You run to be in solitude, so silence is your shadow. Just love. You run with music to lift you up. Just love. You run without music to be organic. Just love. You run to meet your goal.…

Do The Work

I hadn’t felt like writing lately and I’m not one to force my posts, so sorry for the gap in updates! Truly the last two runners, Clark and Bill, literally covered their miles in what seemed like a cake-walk. Throughout Clark’s 180-miles in 7-days and Bill’s 200-miles in 9-days they each individually had about 4-miles of their whole segment that…

Loving Support

One of the most important lessons I feel God is teaching me this year is to meet people where they are and to love them where they are at. For myself, I know that I am strong-willed and focused. I love self-development and growth, and I understand that both are never-ending processes of change. But change isn’t easy…at first. Once…

Muscles, Hospitals, and Real Love

I awoke suddenly with a loud “BANG BANG BANG” on my RV door. I could hear the rain pattering off of the roof and I could tell it was still early in to the night because it was pitch black out and I was in a deep sleep. I scrambled to find a flashlight in the dark and stumbled to…

Everyday A New Day

Each day is different out here so I take it as it comes. I know the best way to get results is consistency, but some things, like each runner and their health, take initial precedence over my writing and updating. Internet connection is always a fun adventure as well ; ) I do tend to chuckle to myself when people…

Bring On The Mojo

My car wouldn’t start, but it just didn’t bother me.  I had just got done aiding Adam with a Snickers bar & Coca-cola at his 12-mile stop when I went to start the car and all I got was the familiar click-click-click of a dead battery.  I left the lights on.  I got out and screamed to Adam a half…
