practice staying in the moment (with books)

2021-03-07T21:14:10+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

2021-03-07T20:52:44+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

2021-03-07T20:44:08+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)

2021-03-07T02:47:30+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 that made me stop in the middle of the trail: “Insight doesn’t equal behavior change.” It made me stop because in that [...]

my stay-at-home daily routine

2021-03-07T02:46:32+00:00

You know that saying, "creature of habit." Yeah, there's a reason why that saying got to be so popular. We run on routines and habits. I run on routines and habits. So when those routines and habits went missing like a shelf-full of toilet paper, I [...]

purpose – why do i run?

2021-03-07T02:45:23+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 [...]

one reader’s journey

2021-03-07T21:53:17+00:00

When I was a kid, I devoured books. Even after my mom told me to put some back, I’d leave the library with a tower of books. Getting in the car meant quality reading time - even if we were just making a trip to the [...]

growth is a series of transitions

2021-03-07T02:42:51+00:00

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 toes, smashed [...]

how i eliminated “fake” work

2021-03-07T02:39:09+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, [...]
