TBR turns 10 today! No, not me silly! This blog! Yup, thebullrunner.com is 10 years old! Who would’ve known that this little online running journal of mine would grow into a magazine, a marathon, and even a community of runners who support beginners and truly love the sport.
Since I created thebullrunner.com on my birthday, it also means that I grow another year older this year. I turn 41 now. Sure, I worry about the white hair on my head, my failing memory, slowing metabolism, longer days of recovery, and bulges here and there, but for the most part, I’m thankful for all the blessings I’ve received the past 41 years I’ve been on this earth. It’s been a wild ride, especially the last 10 years when I became “The Bull Runner” but I look forward to many more adventures to come.
To all of you who have lurked, messaged, waved hello, joined TBR Dream, run with me, or even just supported one of my TBR runners, thank you. To all who greeted me today, family, friends, and even those I’ve never met but took the time to message me online, thank you. To my two kiddos who surprised me with their works of art today and who truly make this life worth living, thank you. Mwah.
It’s been 4 days since TBR Sun Life Dream Marathon 2017 and I’m still reeling from all the emotions and excitement. While we’re on our 8th year, each event is never the same simply because of the runners we meet during the 22-week marathon journey. Each of the 900 runners who signed up for this dream in August had their own reasons for joining, their own highs and lows during training, their setbacks and achievements, and their own stories to tell when it came to the 42.195 kilometers they ran last Sunday.
I wake up each morning (except Monday rest days!) to workout after dropping the kids at school and before heading to work. I try to eat clean, drink lots of water, and keep stress at a minimum. I pretty much think that I live a healthy and clean life.
But then I read about the health risks that our gadgets and electronics can bring us and I suddenly question how safe I am. According to experts, our mobile phones, televisions, ipads, laptops and other electronics deregulate the bioelectric flow in our bodies and can leave us feeling dull and tired.
What can we do to protect us? That’s where Artificer, a line of innovative accessories with patented AERO technology, comes in. They say it aids in rebalancing and regulating the body back to its most effective and natural state. (more…)
“Consider goals as launching pads to something far greater.” – Cyndi Laurin
It’s been a tradition for me to start each year with goals instead of resolutions. I find that setting goals gives me something specific and attainable to work for, while resolutions…well, we know most of those are forgotten before the end of January.
So, here we go go go for my 2017 goals: (more…)
