Why You Need a Plan for Reaching Your Running Goals

Do You Have a Plan for Reaching Your Running Goals?

Goals are good things.

But what good are goals without a plan of action to help achieve success?

Not much.

Why You Need a Plan for Reaching Your Running Goals

If You Fail to Plan, You Plan to Fail

Success is not an accident.

If you want to be successful with your running goals in 2015, you need to come up with a viable plan. For example, my running goal for this year is to run 1300 miles, and I’ve gone less than 20 this month. Why? Just about every day I think about going running, many days I have even wanted to go running, but my “plan” is to run when I get everything done for the day.

Guess what? As a solopreneur, everything is never done, and therefore, the runs haven’t happened as often as I’d like.

So how will I be successful at achieving my goal for the year? It won’t happen by accident, that’s for sure! Read more

January Listener Q&A

Runner Q and A-January 2015


Back in August, I released a Q&A episode where I took questions from listeners of the show, friends on Twitter, people on Facebook, and anyone else that had a running related question that they wanted to get answered.

January Listener Q&A

And to date, it is the 2nd most listened to episode of the show.

Something new that I’m going to try for 2015 is making the last episode of the month a Q&A show. Obviously, the first Q&A show was very popular and I’m always getting questions from listeners and twitter followers (which I love, so keep them coming!), so I think it only makes sense to have a regular question and answer time on the show.

I think once a month will be a good frequency to start with, and I’m happy to adjust if there are enough questions to have to do this more often.

So let’s dive in. Read more

Having to Reset Your Goals Doesn’t Mean that You’ve Failed

As January is drawing to a close, how are you doing with your 2015 resolutions?

I’ve been talking a lot about setting goals for the year in the past few weeks and I’ve been trying to give you some tips that will help you be successful. Remember that eating an elephant isn’t impossible if you cut it into bite-sized pieces, and you don’t need to be perfect to be successful either.

Struggling with your goals? Press the button, reset your goals, and keep moving forward.

Even if you’re doing everything right, there is still a good chance that you will need to reset your goals from time to time.

And that is ok.  Read more

Foot Kinetics Product Review

Blisters are something that no runner wants to have to deal with. There are a number of different options that we can use to try and prevent blisters, but I recently had the opportunity to try out Run Goo from Foot Kinetics.

In the video above, I review the product and talk about what my opinions are after giving it a try.

Bill Culver Got Bit by the Running Bug in a Serious Way


When he signed up for his first 5k, Bill Culver had no idea what he was getting himself into.

A little over a year later, he has run a lot of races, a lot of miles, and learned a lot of lessons about himself and about running in the process. While some of those lessons have been a little bit painful, both literally and figuratively, he is looking forward to using the knowledge and experiences of 2014 to help him continue to grow and improve as a runner in 2015.
