Every Mile Matters

Every Mile Matters by V. Kowalewski I was a competitive 3-sport jock in high school, but I hated running. HATED. IT. Many years and several pounds later I decided I’d take up running as a way to get in shape and lose some weight. My first run was to a small bridge over a creek ½ […]

Every Mile Matters

Every Mile Matters Amber Hadigan May 11, 2013. I laced up my running shoes for the first time. I was 204 pounds and wore a size 18 pants. I downloaded a couch to 5K app, as I had signed up for a 5K race exactly eight weeks later as motivation. That day, I could hardly […]

Every Step Counts

Every Step Counts by Catherine Campbell     I think of this especially on long runs when I am doing 10/30 run/walk/run intervals and I begin to get a little tired. It takes about 26 steps for the 10 second interval. That doesn’t seem like much but as I silently count down the steps I feel […]
