Social media has a lot wrong, especially now as it heightens divisions and eats up days with “doom scrolling.” But I don’t know that I would have kept up with this without you guys holding me accountable. I’ve run something like 270 miles so far this year, and for the last 100 straight I haven’t missed a day.
Running every day is good for my health, but it’s about more than that. It’s about keeping my word to myself, building productive habits as a baseline, trying my best to be a role model for my kids.
The private messages I get ( “ did you run yet today?”, congratulations”, “have you thought about running farther”?) are such a powerful model of encouragement. Celebrating success while gently nudging for more.
It’s about 7am. I’m getting ready to head out and run 5 miles, and just like every other day - I don’t feel like it.

This blog is a place I share some of the things I think about, the photos I take, and the videos I make. They are about life, family, work, content strategy, content creation and podcasting.
