practice staying in the moment (with books)

2021-05-13T15:37:20+00:00

I've found that no matter what I'm doing, my "go go go'' personality tends to show up and hurry me to imaginary finish lines. I'll start a workout and immediately think about what I'll do once it's over. I'll start cooking a recipe and want to [...]

year in review: 2020 training

2021-05-13T16:02:42+00:00

This year, I did some reflecting on both my reading and training habits. Before I looked back over my 2020 reading list, I knew that I'd kept up a fairly steady reading rhythm and had read consistently for most of the year. I wasn't as enthusiastic [...]

year in review: 2020 reading list

2021-05-13T16:07:26+00:00

After looking back through my 2020 Reading List, and I noticed a few things. It was a bit of a slow start, but once March (and the pandemic hit), I pretty much averaged four or more books each month. I ended up with fewer books than [...]

tackling bad habits (knowledge isn’t action)

2021-05-13T16:18:30+00:00

On a recent run, I was listening to the Staying In podcast with Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani. Emily, an ex-therapist, said something (related to tackling bad habits) that made me stop in the middle of the trail: “Insight doesn’t equal behavior change.” It made [...]

creating a stay-at-home daily routine

2021-05-13T16:49:59+00:00

You know that saying how we're "creatures of habit." Yeah, there's a reason why that's a thing. We run on routines and habits. I run on routines and habits. When my routines and habits went missing like a shelf-full of toilet paper, I went to work [...]

finding a purpose – why do you run?

2021-05-13T17:04:01+00:00

A lot has changed in the past month. I haven’t stepped foot in my office or on a pool deck the past few weeks. And those two things have changed my daily routine quite a bit. I’m grateful that I have a job where I’m able [...]

looking back: one reader’s journey

2021-05-13T17:15:00+00:00

growth is a series of transitions

2021-05-13T17:24:11+00:00

triathlon transitions There are two transitions in a triathlon: swim to bike and bike to run. I’ve had enough experience with triathlons to know what to expect in each of these transitions. And I don’t expect it to be comfortable. Swim to Bike: stubborn wetsuit, numb [...]

how to eliminate “fake” work

2021-05-14T15:21:38+00:00

I was that kid who couldn't wait to get a new planner at the beginning of the school year. I don't even know if that's a thing anymore - is it all digital now? Are paper planners obsolete? Don't tell me if they are. But seriously, [...]
