Running Through Life by Paul Spangler

My hairdresser gave me this mini-book….. I took one look at the cover and told her I didn’t want to read it if he died.  There’s enough depressing stuff out there and I try to only watch movies with happy endings and read ‘feel good’ books. I know I miss out on a lot by […]

Lessons from the Kona Marathon

Back in June, I finished the Kona Marathon without even looking at the race results or taking one of their post-race pictures.  My Garmin had run out of battery and the watermelon at the finish line was warm, both signs that I took way too long.  Deflated and discouraged after a bad run, I headed […]
