  1. I feel you on the running funk. I've been in a total work out funk lately. Time to whip myself in shape and get out of it!

    Thanks for posting the link to the shirt! I'll definately be getting one for my princess 1/2 marathon training! 🙂

  2. Gordon, I am sitting here listening to your Funk #1,
    I have been in your shoes, and you may not win a race, me either and you may not feel like you should be doing this. That's bs.
    You have done the hard part. Yo started and you have finished a race. and Now you need to set a short term goal. Keep you Moving Forward.
    When you get done like this anymore you can contact me anytime!!! all my other Disney running family know me, I am there to help. Team Voice is just for that.

    We are working on setting up a Team Voice Virtual run. Want in??

  3. Runner's World Daily Kick IN The Butt:

    You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement.
