Progress is Inevitable

This morning at the cafe I was writing about yesterday’s triumphant running experience which, to summarize, was my third time running 20 miles, yet my first truly satisfying 20-mile running experience. As I sat there writing, the following thought occurred to me: You are seeing the inescapable fact of progress towards what matters to you […]

Third Time’s a Charm

So today I completed my 3rd 20-mile run :). As happened with running half-marathons, the third time proved to be the charm! First of all, I was faster than ever. In fact, I ran 35 seconds per mile faster than last time. Secondly, I felt pretty good for the entire run, whereas on my previous […]

One Must Be Prepared for Long Runs

My running plan this year included running my first 20-miler. Tomorrow I am going to run my third so far 🙂 I wrote about my first 20-miler back in June. That run was a slog, despite the fact that I was excellently prepared: I had run 14-, 16-, and 18-miles respectively in the weeks prior […]

Your Inner World, Made Visible to Others

Tonight I wanted to share some personal thoughts on what it means to me to write a blog. I haven’t exactly taken this tact on this topic before. I’m sort of going into teacher role. Here goes: To write a blog post means to conjure up some thoughts that matter to you, to piece together […]

Becoming Creatively Unstoppable

I remember when I was a kid, it seems from an early age I would write down stories in a journal. I did this at school, but I also did it at home. After all, my mom was (and is) a writer herself. Writing was just a normal part of life in our household, I […]

Reaching for Satisfaction: Rock-Throwing Edition

I’m always reaching for satisfaction. If you check your own thoughts for how they feel, you can really start to tell when they are on point … or not. I am much better at this nowadays. I remember a few years ago, inspired by Abraham-Hicks I would go on runs and I would repeat the […]

The Post-Bear Market Bounce Back

Since the stock market bottomed out back in March, it has been on a (mostly) steady climb back up, notwithstanding last week‘s declines. How quickly the crash (ie bear) became a boom (ie bull). Strange and interesting times indeed. Apparently this trend of immense growth following bear markets is pretty normal (even if it usually […]

Look at Us Now!

Today is the first day of November. It’s a new month and I have decided (haven’t I?) that I shall blog this month. Of course, I have learned that being flexible with myself is always a good idea with this blog, especially when it comes to new months, new “re-ups” of my commitment to daily […]

New-and-Improved, Pandemic-Era Running Regime (October Update)

Earlier this month I wrote about how I was running more often these days. That trend has continued. In fact, this month I ran 23 out of 31 days, something I have not done for years, if ever. In the process, I actually ran more miles than I ever have in a month, to my […]

My 2020 “Slow” and “Quick” Reads

So I have kept up my reading this year (obviously). In fact, I have so far completed 24 books, or roughly 9500 pages. I gobbled up some of these books very quickly; others I slowly digested, or paused and came back to. In general, I don’t rush myself through books. If the information is new […]
