Such a valuable lesson Dax!  Somehow, as parents, we can take something that our kids enjoy and turn it into work.  My three-year-old has been really into swimming lately, and my first reaction was to get him into lessons, but not just lessons, the best lessons, coached by a former olympic swimmer.  Then I realized how asinine that sounded.  He's three and he likes to swim, so I should take more time to go play with him in the pool.  I feel better when I catch myself before I do something like that, and I let my kids be kids and I let them enjoy what they enjoy.  Thanks for posting Dax!
It's nice to be reminded what it means to have fun, to run with a light heart and an energy that can't be contained. My wife, my two youngest kids, and I pulled up on a grey morning to run the Children for Children 5K. The 11...

Hey Guys...Still Alive!
Well, it's been an extremely long time since my last update.  I almost feel like I should just start an entirely new blog, but after reading some of my old posts I started reminiscing about running and blogging about it in Washington, DC and in Hyderabad, I...

When will it end!?
I got in some great running last week, but I'm finding myself bored with running in India.  The daily struggles just seem to get to me every now and then.  I'm tired of running past the 4 trash piles, which are often times on...

My Garmin FR60 finally beeped its last beep.
A couple weeks ago my Garmin FR60 quit working after the battery died, which just so happened to be slightly out of the 1 year warranty date.  After a little internet research, it looks like that has been a pretty common occu...

The struggle that every endurance athlete faces...balancing the time with the ones you love and the time spent doing what you love.

Thanks for writing Dax.  I completely agree with you, that people everywhere are going to be chomping at the bit to run Boston over the next few years, to show the world that acts of terrorism won't ever force us to live in fear of being who we are and doing what we love.  Qualifying for, and running, Boston was never really on my race 'bucket list,' but it most certainly is now.  I hope to see you there some day Dax.

Training Plans, Oh Training Plans
I've so missed the obsessive compulsive ritual that is "the training plan" for an endurance runner.  I've put together a training plan mapping out the next several months leading up to the Whistler 50 , and I've also picked out another race that I think wou...

Race day keeps getting closer and closer!
Well, it's been awhile.  Don't worry.  I'm still here.  My family and I have had some crazy ups and downs recently, and as a result I just haven't been able to maintain running, and blogging about it.  The good news is that I...

My running partner broke up with me :'-(  Oh well.
After running for a few weeks without a watch to tell me how far I've gone, or how slow I'm going :-P, it's been very nice to have that little running companion again.  I've been using the Garmin Forerunner 10 for almost two ...

Check out some nice pics from running in India
The last couple of weeks have been pretty exciting.  We're having another baby!  I'm totally stoked to have another little person running around the house, or, at least for the first few months, eating, sleeping, and crying. ...
