Maybe the way you always do it is wrong.

Two years ago I tried to update my Typepad blog with a card, it just wouldn't work

So, I got busy. I tried again, and no matter what card I used, I couldn't get it to work.

Just now, I tried it, and it worked fine.

What was I doing wrong? Don't know. But I was doing something wrong, but I kept on doing it.

The result was I didn't write a blog for two years.

Another example was some mornings I would bake some eggs for my daughter.

I would use baking paper so the eggs wouldn't stick to the dish.

They would always stick.

Then I run out. I tired to buy some more, but I bought the wrong one.

I got parchment paper.

I thought about sending it back.

Then i tried it. And it didn't stick.

I was stuck using a way that didn't work.

There is saying about walking in dumb each day.

It is a mindset that gets you to question about why you are doing it that way.

Especially, if it ain't working.

But even when it is working.

But could work even better.











There is no bad day to go for a run.


1 mountain.

1 Gale.

0 regrets.

Running is zen

 Just the next step.

 Just the next step.

 Just the next step.

 Just the next step.

 Just the next step.

 Just the next step.

 Just the next step.

 Just the next step.

 Just the next step.

 Just the next step.

 No past.

 No future.

 Just now. 



You don't sing to get to the end of the song


don't run for a time.

don't run for a distance.

just run for the run.

I run faster when I see someone walking towards me


I don't know why but I just do.

I don't want them to know if I am struggling.

Dumb, really.


Some days you just run slow. And there is no reason why.


Maybe the hills are little steeper.


Maybe the mud is a little stickier.


The wind more in your face.


Maybe you didn’t sleep so good.


Maybe you ate a little late.


Maybe you didn’t drink enough water.


Maybe something is on your mind.


Or maybe it’s none of the above.


Maybe slow days, well, just happen.

And you just have to accept them and do the miles.
