Training update: 127 days until the Austin Marathon

While I’ve posted a lot of info the last few days, I haven’t talked much about what’s next. That was intentional, as I wanted to take more time to digest last Sunday and take a break. After more time to think, to step back, I am happy with Sunday. I was disappointed with the result... Read more »

Dads Who Run: Meet Steve DeLuca

This is the next installment of Dads Who Run here on cubicle dad runs. Working parents have a lot on their plate. And as a working dad, I think we sometimes get taken for granted.

T-minus 3 days and counting until the Chicago Marathon

I’m not nervous, but I am anxious today. Actually, my mind is racing a bit. So bear with me as this post will jump around a bit. I woke up early and got my run in, 40:00 easy, zone 1. I got back around 5:15ish, crawled back into bed and fell asleep! Ha! Luckily I... Read more »

Letting toxic people and negative thinking affect stops now. It's done.

Yesterday was a rough day for me. I had some feelings from my childhood (you can read about it here…I’ll wait) stirred up a bit. It’s nothing I really want to dive into here, so I’ll spare the details. I’ll just say it was unpleasant and unnecessary. Couple that with some negative self image stuff... Read more »
