Inspired Running

Inspired running from Gibson’s Daily Running Quotes keeps me running.  Here are some of my recent favourites: “Faced with deep winter, the unfortunate question becomes, how bad do the jim-jams have to get to drive us out there where we can do the actual running? All you want is a nice relaxing run, and the atmospherics insist on turning it into the next thing to a polar expedition. Dee ...[Read More]

Baby steps to Running

Baby steps.  That’s what it takes to start running…and baby steps are what it takes to run a Marathon.  Running especially long distance running can be intimidating.  I know…it took me a long time to fully embrace running to the point where I now eagerly look forward to my early morning runs.  I turn into a bear if I miss a day! There’s been a massive growth in long distanc ...[Read More]

Obsessive Runner?

I love running!  I’m an obsessive runner!  And proudly so… I run as often as I can.  When I travel I pack running gear and no matter the jet lag look forward to getting up before dawn to run in a new town or city.  I learn so much about a place by running along streets and through communities. I run when I’m tired.  I slog the first minutes with heavy steps and ragged breathing b ...[Read More]

Double Bling for Reggae Runnerz

Double Bling rewards Reggae Runnerz at Reggae Marathon!  Wow!! Back in the day we ran for T Shirts.  At all of my 10K races and even Triathalon events, I received a T Shirt as the only reward for competing in the event.  I had a small mountain of T Shirts that I loved and just could not get rid of even after they were well past their primes.  There were no finisher medals.  We competed for that T ...[Read More]
