Free Family Turkey Trot II

 

Oops we did it again!! Last Thanksgiving we had an idea and now it’s annual event. I started receiving emails for all of the local races so I thought I better start spreading the word that we will indeed host our second annual Free Family Turkey Trot this year. Despite the cold weather, last year was a success and great time for all. Here’s a quick look at some of the fun!

We’ll finalize details in the coming weeks, but I wanted to get the word out as early as possible before you decide to make those payments to another race. We will also again accept canned food donations if you feel led. It’s not a requirement. For all of the latest details, keep an eye on our official facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/FreeFamilyTurkeyTrot

Columbus Half Marathon Recap.

Early this morning my wife and I were up and out the door to join in with the other crazy folks running in the Columbus Full and Half Marathons. I did my best to recap the days events on the video below. Since I was the guy behind the camera (or iPhone in this case), I didn’t get any footage of my finish of the half marathon. It was a great day. My first four miles were a little rough but I got it going after that and finished with a much better time then I had anticipated (1:53). But … Continue reading Columbus Half Marathon Recap.

Columbus Half Marathon Playlist

It’s been awhile since I created a new playlist from the ground up. It’s LONG overdue. While I love the playlists I have used in the past, they are the same playlists that I listen to every single time I hit the streets for a run. You will note that this list is heavy on the Thousand Foot Krutch. They are my current band of choice and certainly when it comes to running. I tend to like the rhythm of an electric guitar or a strong rap to keep the beat. It also allows my mind to focus on the … Continue reading Columbus Half Marathon Playlist

Have A Cause?

For several months now I have been weighing the opportunity to run in the Columbus Half Marathon on October 17, 2010. I have gone back and forth and have yet to sign up. My wife and are I are running in the Dayton Air Force Half Marathon on September 18th and she has already signed up to run the full marathon in Columbus. We both feel like our days of running in these events are wrapping up so Columbus will most likely be our last race for awhile. There are two things that came to mind the other day as … Continue reading Have A Cause?

Half Marathon Lessons Learned

Run...Always
Image by Nwardez via Flickr

I’ve always said that I’m not a runner, I just run. Lately several friends have begun running as well and I’m excited to follow their journey as they begin. After completing our 4 x 4 x 4 (4 half-marathons in 4 cities in 4 straight weekends) recently, I thought I would give an average guys guide to what I have learned. This might offer some suggestions as others look ahead to completing this task too.

1. Enjoy the journey – The key to every half-marathon I have run is to enjoy the run. I have run some of these with a goal time in mind and those are the ones I would tell you were my toughest runs. I didn’t enjoy it as much. I was too focused on that time to see and hear all of the excitement that goes in to race day. It’s good to challenge yourself, but not to the point that you miss the ride. Read the signs! Give the little kids 5 as you run by! See the landmarks! Soak in the cheers! Read other people’s shirts and find the stories of why others are running the race too.

2. Break it up – Before each race, I take a good look at the race map. I get a feel for the long stretches and when we make some important turns (halfway for example). I break down a race into small milestones along the way.

  • Mile 4 = single digits
  • Mile 6 = almost halfway
  • Mile 8 = one hand

It may seem silly but it really helps to make 13.1 miles more “bite sized”. It also gives you something to look forward to. Once I reach mile 8 and hit my watch, I raise my hand with all 5 fingers extended. I do the same at 9, 10, 11 and 12 with a count of how many we have left extended. It’s cheesy, but I started doing that in my first half and have continued the tradition.

Cleveland Rocked!

What started off as a wild idea just  a few months ago, closed yesterday at roughly 9:54 as I cross the finish line of the Cleveland Half Marathon. This was never really planned, but as it played out, I was finishing my 4th half-marathon in 4 different cities in 4 weeks. Insane. There was no better place for me to wrap up this journey than Cleveland, Ohio. It’s always been home and I love that city. Nashville, Columbus, Indianapolis and Cleveland were the locations for our races. Each one different. Each one special. I still can’t believe it’s over now. … Continue reading Cleveland Rocked!

I’m Coming Home

While it is a little known fact that I was born in Anchorage Alaska, if you ask me where I call “home”, without hesitation I will tell you Cleveland, Ohio. I actually grew up in a little town called Bedford on the east side of the city, but Cleveland is my city. The city is the punchline in many jokes and is often referred to as “the mistake on the lake”. I like to say that it might be a mistake, but it’s our mistake! I love Cleveland. Some of my greatest memories begin and end in Cleveland. That is … Continue reading I’m Coming Home

Indy Mini-Marathon Recap

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And then there was one….On Friday, my wife and I took a late drive over to Indianapolis to meet Matt Nelson for the first time and crash at his house. The alarm went off at 5:30am on Saturday morning and we were up and off to attempt our 3rd Half-Marathon in 3 weeks. This weekend’s task was the Indianapolis Mini-Marathon. I’ll give you the short version of this post right now…I LOVED this half-marathon. The course was flat and the 2 1/2 mile run on the track at the Indy 500 was the perfect middle to 13.1 miles.

As with every half marathon, I get a little sentimental about what shirt I will wear. The truth is that when the time came for Indianapolis, I just wasn’t quite sure. I packed 2 shirts we have received in previous half marathon’s this year….Charlotte (my favorite half marathon) and Nashville. There was something that just felt right about wearing the Nashville shirt in support of our friends and the recovery from flooding. I literally had my number pinned to the Charlotte shirt and was wearing it Saturday morning. But something kept drawing me back to the Nashville shirt. I made the change and I am so glad I did….

Next Up – Indy Mini

If you have been following the journey, you probably already know that on Friday my wife and I are headed 2 hours west to Indianapolis, Indiana. Long before “4 in 4 weeks” was ever a dream, the Indianapolis Mini-Marathon was on the schedule. There are several reasons why this one will be special: 1. Our Corporate Headquarters are based in Indianapolis 2. Indy is like my second home due to the extended time I have spent there 3. I finally get to meet Matt Nelson. He and his wife were kind enough to open their home to us. 4. You … Continue reading Next Up – Indy Mini

Columbus 1/2 Marathon Recap

Two down…two to go!  As promised, we met at the house around 6:00am before pushing off to the Capital City Half Marathon in downtown Columbus, Ohio on Saturday morning. The hour was again very early, but the spirits were high as we anticipated another great half marathon. Due to the Women of Faith conference being held at Nationwide Arena, the directors for this years half-marathon had to re-route the course and believe me when I say it was TOTALLY different than in years past. I didn’t realize that Columbus had inclines. The race was overall pretty good. We ran together, … Continue reading Columbus 1/2 Marathon Recap

Nashville Half Marathon Recap

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What a weekend! I am not sure where to even start this post. As anticipated, our weekend in Nashville was incredible. The events and fun of the weekend were interrupted by a 13.1 mile half marathon on Saturday morning but took nothing away from the weekend! Let me say it like this:

1. Nashville is NOT flat

2. A BUNCH of people run in this race (30,000 or something like that)

3. David Schroeder and his wife are about the nicest people on the face of the planet.

4. Nashville, Tennessee has vaulted to the top on my list of 5 best places in the United States

Imagine a city that brings all of your favorite things in this world into one place. Music, lyrics, entertainment, authors, publishers and everything deep fried in something. THAT is Nashville, Tennessee. Our journey started Friday at packet pickup where we met up with Matt and Rachel Wojnarowski. After some pictures and fun, it was off to finally meet Dave Schroeder and his family for the first time in person. The rest of the evening we spent filling up on carbs and catching up with one another.

Way too early Saturday morning we were up and out the door. The Weather Channel was broadcasting threats of severe thunderstorms, hail and the Doppler radar was one massive mess. It looked like something out of the movie “Independence Day” hanging over the city of Nashville. We made our way to the race and jumped in to the stream of people already going through the starting gate. 13.1 miles later, not a single drop of rain touched down! We had made it through another memorable half marathon. The course was full (and I mean FULL) of long, slow, steady inclines. These were not hills, they were inclines. The personal highlight for me came around mile 11 where I was able to high five Sock Monkey as he stood on the side of the road cheering. It doesn’t take much…honestly….

Nashville Half Marathon Playlist

This has become a bit of a custom of mine the last year or so. Without further ado, I give you the music which will be ringing through my ears as I run the streets of Nashville this weekend for the Country Music Half Marathon. I decided to mix it up a bit for this one. I actually finished this playlist about a month ago, but since I have been listening to it throughout my training, I got a little tired of it. Today I did something I don’t normally do and changed it up without previewing it first. This could get scary.

It might sound crazy, but more times than not, the song pumping through my headset gets me through another half mile. More than once I have been about ready to quit and a song comes on that gets me through the “wall”. So blindly adding some tunes without “road testing” them is something I don’t usually do. I also try to add in a little something for the city I am running in. I went with a little country (Kenny Chesney), a little Southern Voice (Tim McGraw) and some Tennessee Line by Daughtry. After Monday’s video, I went a little heavy on the TobyMac too. It was the least I could do.

TobyMac Sends Us a Shout Out!

Last night I received a very special message from my good friend Dave Schroeder and none other than TobyMac! This is just wicked cool. David was with Toby, Max Lucado and Third Day yesterday to prepare for the upcoming Make a Difference Tour. They took time out of their busy schedule to send Heather and I a quick note about the Country Music Half Marathon this weekend. We will all be hitting the streets for 13.1 miles and cannot wait! Special thank you to Toby and Dave for taking the time to do this. The kids now think Heather and … Continue reading TobyMac Sends Us a Shout Out!

Saturday's Lineup

On Saturday morning my wife and I will all toe the starting line for the Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville, Tennessee. We originally signed up for this race as a way to connect with our friends at Thomas Nelson and specifically, Dave Schroeder. As the weeks and months leading up to race have come and gone, the list of people running or attending the race continues to grow. With every name, the excitement and anticipation of this weekend builds to a fever pitch. Some of these names may not mean much to those reading this, but to me, they all represent friendship and admiration. The people we will meet in Nashville are CEO’s, Publishers, Artists, Authors, family and friends. I told Heather yesterday that it was going to be tough for me to focus on running when there were so many people I wanted to meet. Check it out:

A Little Crazy…

In one week, my wife and I will embark on an incredible 4 week journey. Actually, the 4 week journey will mark the completion of a journey we have been on for well over a year now. The journey has taken us to cities like Charlotte and Phoenix for half marathons. This will also mark the end of a whole lot of training. While most would say we’re crazy, the reality is that we’ll actually run less miles the next 4 weeks than we do on a “normal” week because we will be recovering on the weeks between races. Next … Continue reading A Little Crazy…

Help Celebrate 13 years in 13 Miles

I mentioned it in a previous post, but my wife and I are both running in the Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville, Tennessee on April 24th. I am looking forward to this half marathon on so many levels. Short of Charlotte (God’s Country), I don’t know that I’ve ever been more excited about a half. This one is not about the time or the distance. This one is about friendships. From friends in Columbus that are running to Thomas Nelson friends we are connecting with for the first time when we get there. I believe some very special things await us in Nashville, Tennessee.

I wanted to highlight our friends Matt and Rachel Wojnarowski and their story heading into Nashville. Would you consider supporting them? We are honored to call them friend and share in this special day. Details of ways to support Matt and Rachel are below:

What's Behind You

Image by kharied via Flickr Now that spring has started to sprung (poor english intended), it has been so good to hit the streets again for a run. The “dreadmill” was a blessing to have, but believe me when I say it is no way to train for a half-marathon. Outdoor training is just different. Running outside also offers changes in scenery, smells and different terrain. It was during a recent run that  I was reminded again of something I am just not good about. There is a training loop that both my wife and I do that involves running … Continue reading What's Behind You

Last Chance Half Marathon Recap

I am sitting here tonight reflecting on what turned out to be a pretty good race this morning. To be honest I have been dreading this one for a few weeks now. Originally I put this on the schedule knowing that my good friend Jeff was running in it too. Initially I forgot that he was running the 10K version so I signed up for the half marathon. What made this one unique is that it is a 1 mile course. Depending on your race, you ran the appropriate amount of laps to complete your goal. In Jeff’s case, that … Continue reading Last Chance Half Marathon Recap

Phoenix Half Marathon Recap

On January 17th, my wife and I took part in the PF Changs Half Maraton in Phoenix, Arizona with our good friends Troy and Catherine Plant. Since it took place during my 40 Day Blog Fast, I am just now getting to the recap. As I look out my window at the mounds of snow, I think part of me is hoping that posting this will bring some sunshine back to the Buckeye state as well. I cannot recap this event without first thanking Troy and Catherine for making our trip to Phoenix so memorable. From the moment we landed, … Continue reading Phoenix Half Marathon Recap

God Had Other Plans

I hate the treadmill. I really do. I try to avoid it as much as possible, but the nearly 2 feet of snow outside make it pretty difficult to train anywhere else. With a half marathon looming a week from Sunday, I have to get the miles in somewhere. My plans tonight were to get in a quick 4 miles, type a recap of our January half marathon in Phoenix and call it an evening. God had other plans. I love when He does that…. Our Pastor recently started a series on the Beatitudes. With house church looming tomorrow night, … Continue reading God Had Other Plans

Sharing the journey

With the Country Music 1/2 Marathon just a few short months away, I made the insane decision to sign up for the “Last Chance for Boston” 1/2 marathon on February 28th. I figured it was a good way to stay ready and motivated for the Nashville half. Unfortunately, Mother Nature didn’t get the memo about keeping the snow away so those of us in Columbus could train appropriately. Like most of the country, we have been hammered with snow around these parts. Training has been alternated between the “dreadmill” and outside runs in the snow. This half marathon is unique in … Continue reading Sharing the journey

Next Up and 2009 Review

On New Years Day, I’ll be hitting the streets with my good friend (and Dook fan) Jeff to once again kick off the new year with a 5K. Last year we braved the sub-zero temps to get this year started right. Since every where you look, there is an end of the year re-cap, I thought I would recap the year that was my running journey, starting with last years First on the First. It was a great journey and this year looks to be even more exciting. Until next year, have a Happy NEW YEAR! 2009 A Running Log … Continue reading Next Up and 2009 Review

I’d Do It All Over Again!

Got an email tonight that they put together a video for the Charlotte 1/2 Marathon (Full and 5K too) from this past weekend. While we must have ended up on the cutting room floor somewhere, this will give you all an idea of what it was like. I literally loved every minute of this one. Something special about making the memory in Charlotte. I added a few of the photos they took at the race to the bottom of the post. I’m too cheap to buy these and we forgot our camera. As long as we’re not selling them, hopefully they … Continue reading I’d Do It All Over Again!

Thank You Charlotte!

For those checking in to see the results of our 1/2 marathon in Charlotte, here’s a recap. We left early Friday morning to drive down to “God’s Country”. By the time we got to Charlotte, we had time to pick up our race packets downtown and grab a nice dinner at a local sports bar. I can’t express how good it was for my heart to be right in the middle of ACC country. Seeing the flags for UNC and the Carolina Panters all over was just awesome. We caught up with our friends and went back to their house … Continue reading Thank You Charlotte!

Charlotte Playlist

You will need to forgive me this week as I am looking ahead to the weekend. It sounds crazy, but there is something about the city of Charlotte that just gets in my blood. While I’ve never spent more than a few days there at a time, some part of me feels like it’s “home”. Maybe one day it will be. Until then, I cherish every moment and hour I can spend there. This weekend will be a whirlwind tour with very little time to relax. We’re sure to get an up close tour of the city while running 13.1 … Continue reading Charlotte Playlist

Next Up: Charlotte!

Those that have been around this blog for more than a year probably just rolled their eyes and said “on no, not again”. This time I can assure you that there is no “For Sale” sign in front of our home and we’re not packing any boxes. We are, however, headed south to Charlotte, North Carolina (God’s Country) in 2 short weeks. We’ve been planning this trip for several months now and it’s hard to believe that it is already here. On Saturday, December 12th my wife and I will hit the streets of Charlotte to run the Thunder Road … Continue reading Next Up: Charlotte!

The Rest of the Story…

Today we received a notification from the photographers that take photos at races that our pictures were in from the Turkey Trot. This allows me to show you a frame by frame finish of the end of the race. With all due respect to the photographers, I am not selling or printing these so hopefully they are cool with what is below. I just wish I had a copy of the theme from “Chariots of Fire” to start playing right….NOW (just play it in your head as you read along). This was PRICELESS! As I said earlier, I felt GREAT … Continue reading The Rest of the Story…

Nike Human Race 10K Recap

Well we did it! A little over a week ago I found out that Nike was sponsoring a world wide running event and we could be a part of it locally here in Columbus, Ohio. The scene was THE Ohio State University and the cost was only $10. I jumped at the chance to be a part of something like this and luckily, so did my wife and our good friends the Richardson’s. Even though it was literally raining sideways when the gun went off, the skies cleared up and we were on our way. As usual, the girls jumped … Continue reading Nike Human Race 10K Recap

What Are You Doing Next Friday?

We haven’t taken one step of that 13.1 miles that are looming on Sunday and I’m already signing us up for some additional mileage! I can’t help it, this one looks REALLY cool. Even for a Tar Heel fan that is trapped in Buckeye country. Before I get to this race, just a quick update that we signed up as promised for the 4 miler on Thanksgiving Day tonight. Right now we’ve got about 12 people that have verbally committed to running it with us. So if you were still thinking about it, today is your day! Join us won’t … Continue reading What Are You Doing Next Friday?

Sunday's Half Marathon Playlist

Let the debate begin. I’ve said it before. Say what you want, but these songs get and keep me moving for 13.1 miles. I’m sure some of you would never put some of these in your iPod and that is okay. We don’t need to agree on selection. But these are the songs that will get me through it. As of this morning, the training is over and the next time I lace them up will be at the starting line on Sunday. Here’s what will be ringing through my head.

Who's In?

So what are you doing on Thanksgiving morning? If you’re in Columbus and don’t have plans, why not join the madness and run a 4 mile race with us? So far we’ve got about 10 friends that are going to sign up and make this a memorable morning with us. For those that might remember, this was my very first race just one year ago. It was great fun with great friends. So as the date draws near, my wife and I thought we would extend the invitation to any one that might want to join us. We’re looking forward … Continue reading Who's In?

Running Update

I got some questions so I figured I would update the blog too. I took part with a few others in the Indianapolis Corporate Challenge on Saturday. The weather was damp, but nice and cool. I ran in a 5 mile race to start the day so the cooler temps were welcomed for sure. Two guys from our biggest competitor hopped in line right in front of me at the start so I did my best to keep up with them…for about 1 mile. After recording a 6:42 mile to start a 5 mile race, I knew I was in … Continue reading Running Update

What’s Next?

I had some time to kill last night (which is never a good thing) so I started surfing around at possible races as the weather starts to turn colder. I am often asked “what’s next up for me”. To be honest I really didn’t set out to log a bunch of races, but they just seem to keep popping up. One blessing for most of them has been sharing the experience with my wife and friends along the way. With that in mind, I set out last night to see what looked like fun and would physically be possible. I’ve … Continue reading What’s Next?

What Are You Afraid Of?

Wow, that was great! At 7:30 this morning Heather and I met up with 5 other friends to push off on a 13.1 mile journey from Dublin to downtown Columbus. The temperature at race time was a cool 55 degrees. It was so great to line up with friends from churches, childhood and neighbors. What a moment to look at how one theme united each one of us and made the strangers fast friends. The pre-race commentary and jokes made the task ahead seem less intimidating. I happened to be the center of many of said jokes because I didn’t … Continue reading What Are You Afraid Of?

Time’s Up…

Here it is..the training is over and all that awaits now is the race itself. I am really excited about this one for some reason. Maybe after running one already, I have a small idea what I am in for. Overall, I enter this one on Sunday in a better place mentally and physically than the half marathon we did in May. I am most excited that Heather and 2 other friends are running the race Sunday too. Next time I post, it will be a recap of the race. Pray for us Sunday as we push off around 7:30 … Continue reading Time’s Up…

I Have Decided

For those that have been following along, I have been looking/deciding on a t-shirt to wear for the Half Marathon on Sunday. As I said in a previous post, I think it’s important to let people know why you’re running. It is also a great opportunity to spread a message to those around you for roughly 2 hours. Thanks to the UPS driver and Max Lucado, I now have the shirt which will spread that message. It’s all about living FEARLESS! Heather and I have both been reading advanced copies of Max Lucado’s incredible new book FEARLESS. I am honored to … Continue reading I Have Decided

Running Log 8/15

Interesting week this week with the training. Only 2 weeks to go before the Half Marathon on August 30th. In reality, I only have one more long run next Saturday before the 13.1 of the half marathon itself. I only ran three times this week as I considered the 2 hours of pickup basketball a substitute for the 4 miles I was supposed to do on Thursday. That 2 hours was my enemy today. Big time. Monday was extremely sluggish. I would chalk that up to still recovering from the 12.5 I did last Saturday. The legs were very heavy … Continue reading Running Log 8/15

Believe?

Quick update this morning before I have to head off to “The Mother-ship” in Indianapolis (Corporate Headquarters) for  a few days. I went on a quick 5 mile run early this morning. Somewhere around mile 2, this song hit the iPod. I lost count of how many times I hit repeat over the next 4 miles. I couldn’t get enough of it. It energized me, challenged me, reminded me, inspired me and got my blood going (I am NOT a morning person or runner). I post it now so that maybe it will do the same for you today. One … Continue reading Believe?
