So, I am new to running and haven't really gotten past running a mile or two yet. It's been hard to get into the swing of this because of the crazy heat down here in North Carolina.

Anyway, I was feeling kinda down about my performance or should I say lack there of and was searching the internet and came across this recent article in the New York Times Cheering Section:


After reading about Mike Richter (for those of you who don't know him, he lead the New York Rangers to the Stanley Cup in 1994 and the United States to a gold medal in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey)prearing to run the ING New York City Marathon on November 4 I got reenergized.

Richter is also participating the ING’s Run for Something Better program, which encourages boys and girls to participate in physical activities as a way of fighting obesity.

This story has totally inspired me to get back out there and keep running. I am also going to check out orangelaces.com and see how I can become part of the Run for Something Better program in my area.

To everyone... keep running.
