The Power of Suggestion

The Power of Suggestion

I enjoy reading running blogs, it’s a subject I find myself very interested in and unlike other pursuits runners really like blogging about running.

Flights of Fantasy

For the most part, I’m really practical. I have spreadsheets, I like to plan things to enough of a degree that there’s an underlying structure with some built in room for things like spontaneity.

As I settled into my malaise and decided never … Continue reading

BEST PIECE OF RUNNING GEAR EVER

If you’re only ever going to invest in one piece of running gear ever, this is it. It never makes anyone’s “must have” lists but it’s more important than shoes.
