Jerry Przywara Learned That In Running And In Life Progress Isn’t Linear


My guest today is someone that has been fairly active in the Facebook group the past couple of years, so his name may be familiar to some of you.

Outside of what he has shared in the group, he’s someone that I don’t know a whole lot about.

I am looking forward to getting to know more about Jerry Przywara while going a few easy miles with him today.

Andrea Golden Has Fallen Head Over Heels in Love with Running


Andrea Golden is another “victim” of runner peer pressure, signing up for her first 5k at the urging of a friend.

Now, like many of us, she’s completely hooked!

Running NYC as Her First 26.2

Last fall Andrea ran the New York City marathon as her first, and to date only, marathon.

When she answered our opening question with the marathon, I had to ask if she thinks she would have enjoyed her first marathon experience as much if she was running a 500 person race instead of a multi-thousand person race through the streets of New York. Read more

The Start of the 2015 Carol Marsh Kids to Camp 5k

The 2015 Carol Marsh Kids to Camp 5k

This past weekend, I ran in the 3rd Annual Carol Marsh Kids 2 Camp 5k.

I’ve run the race each of the past 3 years, and last year I actually won the race, so I was technically “defending my title” this year.

This race is a fundraiser for the Neighborhood Ministries of First UMC here in Lakeland to help send kids to summer camp that couldn’t otherwise afford it. And since my wife is the director of Neighborhood Ministries, there is a pretty good chance I’ll keep running this race on an annual basis.

I had low expectations for myself going into the race, as I’m in way worse shape than I was last year, so I knew a PR was out of the question. Instead of worrying about my time, I was going to run more strategically, and really race the other runners in an attempt to win the race for the 2nd straight year.

At least until the race started. Read more
