I had a post planned in my head that I was planning to write this morning about being busy and hoping to encourage you all by letting you know that you aren’t alone if you feel busy and overwhelmed in this holiday season. My life with family, work, church, Run Richmond & everything that comes with each of them has been about as busy for the last few weeks as it could possibly be. As I started this post I jumped online (as I usually do) to find a graphic that correlates with my post. I googled the word busy and started looking for something that jumped out at me. That is when words I have known before smacked me in the face again. Continue reading Anyone Besides Me Been Busy?
Details have been in the works for a while now, but it has finally came together. The Inaugural Water to Wine 5K will be May 12th 2017 at Chenault Vineyards. As I have talked to people about this race and described what the plans are there has been one phrase that has stuck out to me. Each conversation ends including the statement “Is it a race or is it a party?”. I don’t believe we have to choose. I say we put on the best 5K Vineyard Run possible and follow that up with the best post race party you have ever been to. Continue reading It’s Official! Run Richmond’s 2nd Race is Happening!
The post on Run Richmond Monday has been shared and read by more people than most other Run Richmond post. I think that proves my point on two topics. First, Run Richmond, and the running community in general is a community of people that really support each other. The headline for that post was announcing that success at the Renfro Rock N’ Run. People wanted to share in the success of those that had it. That is a great thing. After getting into the post I talked a little bit about what winning looks like. About how you should be judging yourself and your success. That is the part of the article that had people contact me. That is what I believe prompted people to share the article with others.

I was thinking a little bit about the theme of most of the articles I put on here. I try to encourage you to push yourself to become a better version of yourself. I believe wholeheartedly that we all have untapped potential to accomplish more than we are currently. That is the good news and the part that I like to keep pushing out there. It has hit me that as true as that is, it is still hard and we frequently fall short of the goals we set for ourselves. So today I want to make sure that we keep those disappointments in perspective.
As Run Richmond has grown in reach over the last year you all have read a lot of articles that I have written and some that I have shared from other great sources online. My perspective is that of a average guy that is trying to make a difference. Trent Funk, has come on as my partner on this endeavor and with him comes a different perspective. He is an accomplished runner who has been surrounded by other accomplished runners through out his life.
I think each of us will connect with different people different ways. Our goal is to bring as many different perspectives as possible to Run Richmond. We never know how an article may reach a person and what changes it may have on their thought process about movement to get healthy.
Today we have a guest article to share from one of Trent’s long-time friends. I hope you enjoy. Continue reading It’s The Memories
For the last 5 or 6 months, I have been thinking about and planning the Historic Haunt in my head almost non-stop. Clearly, there are things that I didn’t think of and things that just didn’t work out the way I had wanted. At the end of the day though I can look back and see the images in my mind of the people crossing the finish line with huge smiles on their face…and that makes me happy and it a successful event.
