There are a couple important things to remember when we talk about going to the gym. First is your goal to build muscle and get that bodybuilder physique or is it to lose/control weight and stay healthy. The second is do you love being in the gym environment and look forward to gym time or is it something that you dread? Continue reading Gym or Running…Which Is Better?
This is a photo of Dennis Kimetto crossing the finish line for a marathon at a finish time that was faster than my last half marathon! Dennis finished the marathon in Berlin back in 2014 setting the world record by running 26.2 miles in 2:02:57.
My PR for the half marathon is 1:50 I have bragged that at least no one alive could catch me if I was running the half and they ran the full. Well, they are getting close to my PR and actually would have gotten me on my last half…I gotta lose some weight again! Continue reading 2 HOUR MARATHON, Is It Really Possible?
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?
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
