Book That Is Motivating Me:

Meditations- Marcus Aurelius

“Anything unreflective will deprive itself of that light.”


Running is more than exercise now. Running is an act of defiance.

Quote I’m Thinking about Today:

“I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It’s nice.” ~J.D. SalingerThe Catcher in the Rye

Checkout Chapter 1 of my serial story “The Man with the Hole in His Brain”

“The man turns back to the mirror. His eyes are deep blue like the child’s.  Below his soft chest,  beats the heart of a child–boundless and wild. A heart that yearns to play outside again. To run, jump, tackle, and swing. To sweat, to bleed, to get dirty again. A heart that is much younger then the body that holds it.”

“The Man with the Hole in His Brain” is work of creative nonfiction. It’s an ambitious literary attempt to tell my story and further explain why I’m training to run again.
