Stepping Out

A few days ago I informed my wife that I was going to start a new blog. Her response? You are not planning on writing about running and only running, right? No. I have another blog/website dedicated solely to the enjoyment of sweat, tears, and uncontrollable bowel movements in the woods. However, this is site... Continue Reading →

Small Towns & Friday Nights

Mead connected with Burtson for a quick touchdown early in the 1st quarter. Carver completed the PAT for the extra point giving the Bulldogs a fast 7-0 lead. -Rural Reporter, 2004 Call it a whim. That's exactly what it was. It was a whim. A person posted on social media that they were going to... Continue Reading →

Seasons & Scenarios

How did this happen? There are so many cliche analogies comparing life to something else that either tangible or intangible within our realm of reality. One of my favorites is comparing life to seasons. Meaning, when you live where I do, life changes like the seasonal weather patterns...by the minute. I tried to prepare myself... Continue Reading →

Every corner, straight away, the crunching of fall leaves reminds me to listen to each gentle beat. I am still moving. I am still alive. It was a standard... Continue Reading →

Land of Misfits

The past weekend featured the trifecta of why life is amazing. Throughout middle school, high school, college, post-college, whatever-adult-life-is-called; my mother and I have gone around and around about myself "rebelling against the system". I've pleaded with her over and over that it isn't by some innate desire to rebel against factions systems of society;... Continue Reading →

Like Everyone Else

3200 My watch, glaring back at me after a romp through the woods on any given summer day over the past several months. 3200 calories is what had been burned. In some cases it is how many 'are left' in the day, in other days it is how many my body has consumed. Part of... Continue Reading →
