Awesome, Audacious Goals

If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not nearly big enough.

If your goals don’t inspire you, you need a loftier vision.

If your ambition doesn’t drive you to push yourself beyond your comfort zone, you need to aim higher.

So, I’ve set a couple of awesome, audacious running goals. I admit, I’m a little frightened, mostly inspired, and way outside comfortable. Sounds about right, then.

Running With The Cows

Just for the record … we weren’t actually running WITH any cows, despite the clever title of this half-marathon race. This was not like the running of the bulls, or anything risky like that.

Nevertheless, Running With The Cows earns high marks for marketing creativity, managing to attract thousands of runners to an otherwise nondescript stretch of rural roads for an enjoyable half marathon near Bucyrus, Kan., on May 10 (yes, this race report is over a month late).
