Milestone Will Have to Wait

Today was supposed to be a big day for me. I was going to hit a big milestone.

At least, it was going to be a big one for me anyways.

Following my run this morning, I would have eclipsed the 100-mile mark for the month.

Sadly, I've spent much of the day in bed. Sick.

Morning, Noon or Night: When Do You Like to Run?

Finding your rhythm, finding your stride, finding what works best for you. In whatever you do, it's always important to find what works well for you, and it's no different with running.

One key thing I've found is finding that time of day that works best for you to get your run in. Some like the mornings, others at lunch or early afternoon and still others like the evening.

Pop Goes the Soda

Today is a special anniversary for me. Sure, it's only a five-month milestone, but given my life history, I'm pretty proud of this one.

Back on October 25, 2010, I gave up pop, soda, soft drinks - whatever you call it in your part of the world, and have not had a drop since.

Stopped cold turkey.

Since giving up soft drinks, I primarily drink three things: coffee, milk and water - lots and lots of water.

Welcome to Runners Anonymous

"Hi, my name is Jay, and I am a runner!"

Whew! There. I admitted it to the whole world.

I, Jay Stancil, am a runner.

Never thought I would ever be saying something like that. Ever.
