Remember how a few days ago I was talking about how cool I felt, that I was keeping everything together after having our second child?  All the early morning runs, getting my pushups in, managing enough sleep. Remember that? Well, it’s still happening, for the most part. But all that thrown in with me trying to direct an ultra-distance trail …

Support

Support is a bit part of most, if not all, businesses.  Customers have questions and have help.  Business clients need help.  And when these customers and clients need help, they turn to the support team for the software, hardware, etc. But, what about when you need support in your every day life?  There’s no “info@mylife.com” email address you can send …

Get back to normal

Just over a week after welcoming our second child, all I want to do is sleep whenever possible. Even though I’m pretty tired I’m the morning after a night of baby feeding and broken sleep, this morning I chose to go out for a run after my 6:00 am feeding duty was done, rather than curling back into bed for …

Podcasts for the win

I always hated the headphone cords flopping around, and ear buds tugging at the cords every time I turned my head to look around. Plus, subconsciously I always tried to sync my stride rate with the cadence of whatever I was listening to. …

Knowing when to say when

As I’ve shared several times before, I’m a streaker. But sometimes you need to know when to say when, and let a streak go. Sometimes keeping the streak alive just for sake of it isn’t worth it. I haven’t hit that point yet, but I’ve come close several times with some of my longer streaks. The good thing to know, …

Positive Momentum in the Face of Chaos

I’ve spent the last month or so building some pretty great habits, one small step at a time. I’ve been feeling great about the progress I’ve been making, and loving the results. Then the unexpected happened. A few days ago my wife gave birth to our second daughter, five weeks early.  Wowza.  We were caught pretty off guard to say …
