Signs to runDisney by

The start of the runDisney season is next weekend with the Disneyland Half Marathon and Other Assorted Running Distances. I enjoy making signs for races, and if I weren’t always running Disney I would put a lot of effort into cheering Disney, so here are some signs I would be out on the course with … Continue reading

Conceal don’t feel

Fear is a good thing. It keeps us alive. It keeps us from doing stupid things. My mother was a big advocate of scaring the shit out of your kids to keep them from doing things like walking on the grass. Walking on the grass was a death sentence, Lyme disease would kill you and … Continue reading

Runner State of Mind: I’m Fun at Failing

Runners have a certain attitude that is not necessarily prevalent in other sports. Like, you can “win” at losing. Let’s be realistic, even runners that people like me think are super fast, they are not winning a race outright any time soon.

You might think that everyone who works out does it in the morning and that after 5pm everyone just hides on their couches or at happy hour but YOU WOULD BE WRONG. That’s right, not everyone is up before dawn running … Continue reading

Why it’s important to read

Runners, you might think that it’s not necessary that you be working those mental muscles because like a T-Rex, your strength is all waist down. But it’s really important that you work those mental muscles, too, like your reading comprehension skills. Why? Oh, I don’t know, because that’s how you avoid signing up for a … Continue reading
