Why I Don’t Want To Run Long Distances

I have no desire to run long distances further than 6 or 8 miles.  There I said it.  I might sound like a sourpuss and may not be considered a “true” runner but that’s just how I feel about it.  I love running.  Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t dread it like some folks.  I used to enjoy it more on the treadmill but once I took it ...

FFFC October Fall Harvest Challenges 2013

What can I say about September?  The kiddies headed back to school and we focused our time getting our miles in the FFFC Fall Fifty Challenge.  We had other challenges going on but they did not take off as much as working to walk/jog/run 50 miles in the month of September.  It's all good though because in October we are just taking it to the ...
