QT: Regular Route Getting Stale? Some Tips to Help Keep It Fresh


No matter how much we love the sport of running, it is possible that our running might get a little boring on occasion.

I mean, I know there are days when doing another handful of miles in my neighborhood just doesn’t sound that exciting.

And point blank, it’s not that exciting.

Most weeks, I’m doing a handful of miles in my neighborhood four times.

Now, my neighborhood isn’t small but it’s certainly not big enough that the monotony of the scenery doesn’t get to me on occasion. Read more

QT: Is It (Still) Worth It? Updates on Past Product Reviews


Some of my more popular posts/episode, and I don’t know why, are the product reviews that I do on occasion.

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a product review, in large part because it’s been awhile since I’ve gotten any products to review!

That said, we are still going to do a little product reviewing today. Read more

QT: Create a Pre-Run System to Get Out the Door on Time


So apparently, there are a few places in the country where it is legit hot AF right now.

The Summer Heat is Intense!

For those of you that aren’t used to running in the heat, I’ll go on record as saying that the best way to beat the heat is to get out there first thing in the morning and get as many miles in as possible before the sun becomes a factor.

It’s just going to be worse when the sun is beating down on you too. Read more

QT: A Little Change Can Be a Good Thing

I’m not sure that I necessarily fear change, but I am sure that I don’t very often like change.

Yet, sometimes change is a necessary thing… Read more

QT: Raise Your Floor to Raise Your Ceiling (Best Of-ish)


This post/episode was originally published in November of 2017. The post/show notes are simply copy/pasted from the original post, but the podcast audio is a new take on the same subject.


What are your biggest, most outlandish, running goals?

You probably know my two big running goals, since I talk about them often.

But in case you need a reminder or are new to my corner of the internet, my two big running goals are to run a marathon in each state and to qualify for Boston.

My two goals have different requirements for success. One is all about longevity while the other is centered around performance.

Provided I keep running for the next 30-50 years, which is the plan, in theory running a marathon in every state shouldn’t be that difficult.

But qualifying for Boston? That is a goal that is going to require me to get substantially faster than I am right now of the marathon distance.

And the only way for that to happen is to raise the ceiling of my fitness.
