Roadies Suck! (a confession)

I ran my first trail race on February 2, 2021. After a lifetime of participation in various road races, I was astounded by how friendly and supportive all the runners were.

A day traditionally marked by somber religious ceremonies about alienation, betrayal, and death. The title for this post is a larger truth addressedContinue reading “It’s Friday, but Sunday’s Coming”

Goals, Failure, Success

I’ve been thinking lately about the effects that goal attainment and failure have on performance, results, and tenacity. A few months ago, I chronicled my November 2019-November 2020 journey with weight loss and fitness. https://woundedwonders.com/2020/11/06/a-year-of-losses-and-gains/ To be honest, since achieving my target weight goal back in March of 2020, I’ve been living with a lowContinue reading “Goals, Failure, Success”
