We have a new home on the web, and the feedback so far has been outstanding.


  "The new site looks AWESOME!"  "Nice job."  "Whoa!  I LOVE IT!"  "It looks great."  "Really navigates well."


Over the years, we've had many comments on how well our old site looked and functioned. Thank you for that feedback.  We've also had many suggestions for improvements.  Recently, those suggestions have included wanting more integration with the social media applications you currently use like Facebook, Twitter, RSS, YouTube, smart phones, web calendars and blogs.  MORE

Bringing Enjoyment to My Running by Paul W

I recently read Running Within by Jerry Lynch and have now developed my "running statement." I have done this to build a more positive AND ENJOYABLE attitude toward running.  Approach Thought:  I have always considered myself a slow runner, but this just addresses competing against someone else. This is an attitude I need to change. I need to think about running within myself . . . for myself. It does not matter where I finish with respect to anyone else, it only matters where my personal mindset is . . . where my personal effort is . . . and how I think about that personal effort.  MORE

We are fully immersed, at least those of us in the Midwest, in that gray and chilly time of year that sometimes is snowy, sometimes isn't, but we are closer to spring than we were to fall. If you're like most of the general population, you're starting to think about where to take a spring vacation and how you might look in a swimsuit when it gets warm. If you're a summertime athlete, however, you should be thinking about what your goals are for the year and how you're going to get there!  MORE
