SHE WHO RUNS WITH TREES

Enough Already.

Enough Already.

We always think of the coming year with what we need to do more of, get better at, etc. Aren't we just telling ourselves we didn't do life well enough this year? We weren't successful enough this year? Think about what you did this past year. You ran, you lifted heavy...

Off Season is HERE

Off Season is HERE

What are you doing in your off-season from running?  Do you take an off-season due to weather or holidays or just because you need a break?  If you run straight through month after month, what does your cross training look like? It's no secret I live "up north". ...

Heavy Lifting

For the past 2 years I've done a lot of heavy lifting and none of it has involved actual heavy physical weight from a barbell.  I miss the barbell and plan to find a way to get back to it in 2020.  However, when I was still lifting heavy I learned a lot about myself...

Epic or Average?

I'm an average person and I do average things.  This mostly irritates the crap out of me because I feel like I'm meant to do great things in life and struggle to dig my way out of the average hole I'm in.  It's a battle to do epic things when you're tethered to a job,...

Ingrained Beliefs

Ingrained Beliefs

I've been on a quest (cue Shrek music) to ditch a lot of old beliefs about myself.  Often as humans, once we get to age 40 and over, we've been through a bit in life, learned a lot from our mistakes, and settled into some ingrained ways of thinking.  How much of what...

Group Support

Group Support

If you're a listener to the LHRL podcast and already listened to episode #144, you heard the latest 5 star review that Wilson read.  A listener gave me a shout out for my support in the Facebook group.  It nearly brought tears to my eyes.  Whoever you are, thank you...
