  1. stephenedwards425 – Nashville, Indiana – I began life going the wrong way. After nearly two decades I had a life revelation. As part of my turn around I became an ultra-distance runner, who a few years ago, ran 3,160 mile across the United States, from Pacific Grove, CA to Rehobeth Beach, DE. Along the way I learned a few things about life, motivation, pain, and, as I like to say, "gobs of other stuff." I co-founded, along with my wife Susie, LifeRevelation. We develop the content for Women's Professional Development Conferences. What Cirque du Soliel has done for circuses is what we envision doing for motivational seminars. We incorporate acrobats, magicians, uni-cyclists, fire-eaters, hand puppets, and drama, as well as speakers, into our program. When women leave our one-day conferences, they are Stronger, Better, and Ready For Whatever. Life is a Revelation...Be encouraged!

    Except for #5 I’ve met every one of the criteria…sometimes for years at a time. 🙂

        Well you succinctly struck the nail upon the head…I had to laugh as I read, because it so perfectly encapsulated how my life was for over 12 years of running professionally.

        God how I miss it…I would give years off my life just to be able to get up, lace on a pair of running shoes, head out the backdoor, and run for 20 miles…I loved every single minute of it…which is saying a lot since I’ve run in 123 degree heat and -20 degree cold…trust me the cold was much easier…but I loved it all.

        Thanks for putting a smile on face today…it is these small things that mean so much to me.

        1. I’m waiting for the cold front. This heat is brutal! I really do wish I could have a water boy (oh, hell, why not a water truck with fans?) follow me on my summer runs. I’m debating about creating a totally made up formula. Something like (actual mileage)x(number of degrees above 80)(.25) = perceived mileage. And, of course, I would use the perceived mileage for my training log. Using this metric, my 16 miles was actually 28 miles. Not too bad:)

            Sort of like a heat index kind of thing…well it’s actually this hot, but it FEELS this hot…because we all FEEL hot the same way…so I ran x miles but it FEELS like x+ miles…excellent idea…a true scientific breakthrough. hahaha!
