|Kansas State University|
Getting back and running on Kansas State University Campus after 36 years was an awesome run. Amazing how many new buildings are there now and more amazing how the originals are still standing and looking great. It turned into a 7 mile run; starting from down town motel, through the neighborhood I lived in and around campus. Didn't make it out to the stadium but covered most of my old stomping grounds. Check out the caption at the bottom of the viewing screen for the story behind the pictures. Check out the link to the slide show for Kansas State University fun run. If you get a chance to go back to someplace special in your life, be sure to take advantage of it and enjoy your own fun run.

|Run with upper body relaxed!|
In Step 1 we addressed the mental side of taking on your monster. That little voice that tries to convince you what you can and can’t do, often times to the point of controlling what you actually do. In Step 2 we’ll take a look at how that monster lurks in your upper body and causes havoc when it doesn’t get its way. By building anxiety and causing doubt in your ability it creates tension throughout your body. Tension causes your body to work against itself, leading to pain while running and even injury. Come on in and we’ll learn to tame your monster.

|Your Monster Within|
The toughest challenge of running, is taming the Monster Within. You have heard it, that little voice that tells you; you’re too tired to get off the couch, it’s too cold – too hot, your back hurts or not tonight you have other things to do. That voice is pretty demanding and for many of us it rules what we think we can do and at times; can actually control what you allow yourself to do.
This is the 1st post of 4 to help you kick that monster out of your head and give you control over how active you want to be at whatever you want to do. If you’re interested in; taming the “Monster Within” then click for more.

|Perfect Protein Drink|
Magic Bullet Blender
Dymatize ISO 100 Whey Protein
Low Carb Protein Drink
As runners that have yet to reach that perfect BMI (Body Mass Index) we’re always tracking our weight, or at least should be. We face the ongoing challenge of offsetting the carbs that create sandbags around your waste with other, more efficient fuel for our body. Runners need to provide something our body can use in place of high sugar carbs. That alternative should be some form of protein. It needs to have minimal carbohydrates with a high level of both protein and calcium. I start everyday with this simple blend, please let me share a cup with you and set you up to get started on your daily protein drink.

Looking for a challenging run in a great small city location. I found one hidden away in the corner of a small Oklahoma city just south of Tulsa, OK between I-44 and I-40.
This quaint little city boasts one of the oldest and prettiest parks in the state. The winding road from the base of the park up to the top look out is an awesome uphill run through a great scenic path. Come on in for the link to this awesome run.

The O’Connell’s run for Special Olympics was a great family event. They hosted a one mile run including kids, a Special Olympics event and an 8 K, providing something for everyone. The bagpipes set pre-race air with excitement. The course was well marked with a sign for every 1K and a water stop on the back side. With DG Productions handling timing it went off perfectly.

After an ice storm rolled through Fort Worth, freezing out the Cowtown Marathon, CarbBuster needed to find a different run to kick off the 2015 season. With 18 weeks of heavy training it was time for some serious fun. At the last second the CarbBuster got signed up for the 25K at Lake Hefner as part of the OKC LANDRUNNERS Beacon Run.
