So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk-on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Today would have been 67, so just a little way to celebrate you pops. Happy birthday.

Feels so good to get a run in before the day starts. It’s been a while...need to get back on track.

Special shoutout to these guys who crushed it today.
One of the most dedicated guys I’ve encountered recently in training for the #cbusmarathon has been @running_with_jeff. This guy has made consistent improvements in his times in recent races. He shaved just over 10:00 off from his last marathon, and will jump right into another in January. Looking forward to joining him for training runs if needed, and keeping an eye on his success. And...today he celebrated a milestone birthday by running this race!!!
Another guys who has been locked in with training for this race is @nickski24. Today was his first marathon, and he did outstanding. I spent most of the race with him, until he was able to find another gear out there to finish strong.
Super excited to be out there to share the day with these two, and appreciate the training runs we were able to get in together.
What’s the next one we’ll be running together?

Marathon #2 is in the books with completion of the #cbusmarathon today. Heading to the starting line, the thought was about how we all have a gift by being able to run this distance, because many people can’t. That thought I had to hold onto tightly as the legs started shutting down at mile 20, and refused to quit. While the result is not what I had hoped for, I was able to cross another finish line. Need to step up the training for whatever the next one will be, and plan to come back to Columbus to post a better time.
Special thank you to my girls for making the trip with me to root me on!

Great opportunity to get out for a group run with the CEO of @clevelandclinic this morning! We got rained out last month, though there was a strong turnout for October!

Dressed for a little running tailgate today with @running_with_jeff and @nickski24 to get our last long run in before the @cbusmarathon next weekend. Pumped to be out there cheering these guys on as they attack their goals. One week from now, we represent The Land down in Cbus.

This little chica is growing way too fast. Six years have flown by! She is the perfect mix of sass and humor that keeps us on our toes constantly, and we are absolutely blessed to have such a sweet girl.

Sometimes you need to pay attention to those little details. Slow down a bit and do it right the first time...

Monday’s are all about motivation; seize the day and the week. Today is no different, though more of a showcase of what the payoff looks like. We all have goals; doubts and fears inevitably may also set in while trying to accomplish those goals. Show up, put in hard work, and crush those goals. That’s exactly what @ryanmccartney did this past weekend. What are your goals? Where do you find your motivation? This morning today is better known as McCartney Monday.

Just some sights from the Akron Marathon relay yesterday. Had a great time with the team, and proud of what we were able to pull off.
