Susan’s Blog: Marathons, rice cakes and McDonalds


A mentor once taught me, “Do things differently than other people and different things will happen to you.”  The same goes for thoughts.  Translation, better things will happen.  If you told Susan she’d be sitting in a McDonald’s eating a rice cake someday, she might have laughed at the thought. Or if you told her she’s be watching the NYC marathon with the slightest belief that someday that might be her on the course, she might have said you’re mistaken.  Down another 1 1/2 lbs, she is in the zone physically and mentally. more »

Alison brooklyn_half_1

Alison asked me to coach her for her upcoming 17 mile run as she prepares for her 1st marathon this November.  I love to remind her how far she’s come since we first met.  A dozen or so 1/2 marathons and triathlons later, she continues to step out of her comfort zone and succeed. I hope you are stepping out of your comfort zone and realizing you have something special to accomplish and share, like Alison.   Read on… more »

Alison qualifying_race_20101205

That’s Alison above qualifying for the NYC Marathon. You never know what you’re capable of so never limit yourself!

Alison:  Last June I did my first triathlon ever, and Peter K did it as well. The bike course in this triathlon was 16 miles long, 3 of which were straight uphill. While I was pumping the pedals on my exceptionally heavy (i.e. crappy) bike and trying to determine if the burning sensation in my legs was just my muscles working so hard or if my quads had actually caught fire, Peter easily caught up to me.
