I've been a little lax on my training blog lately. Maybe all this running has gotten to me. Maybe I've just been consumed with other things. Whatever the case, I am still training and I am still learning alot about myself and about how chasing a goal persistently relates to pretty much everything in life. Since beginning my training, my 10 year old daughter has taken an interest in running and has been participating in Cross Country at Claiborne Christian School. She recently placed 9th in a 2 mile junior varsity event; a 5th grader among 7th-8th graders! I'm so proud of her achievement. I've also recently been asked to be an assistant coach for the cross country team for the remainder of the season. This from a guy who couldn't even run 2 miles the second week of August! One thing that...

Perhaps you've noticed that listings aren't just flying off the market these days. Price is usually the first place we look when a listing seems to be languishing, but there are also other things that we can look at to improve the chances of a quicker sale. Tips To Move That Listing 1. Encourage your sellers to offer to pay buyer closing costs and prepaid items such as taxes and insurance. This can make a major impact for buyers who are trying to scrape up a downpayment or who are very close to their loan limit. Other incentives could include paying for inspections or providing paint or flooring allowances. Perhaps your seller is in the position to owner finance. These such incentives can help push buyers off of the fence.  2. Make your listings easy to show. Too many listings have too ...

8 Tips to Protect Your Home WhileAway on VacationBy Kelly O'Ryan Many lucky families are planning holiday trips to cure their winter blues. Here are some important things to remember if you leave your home for several days.   Make sure to hold the mail and newspaper. If you can't have someone pick it up every day, it's a sure giveaway that nobody's home and can be a green light for burglars. If possible, leave a key with someone you trust, preferably a neighbor and have them keep an eye on your home while you're gone. Make sure to offer returning the favor and thank them with a gift when you return. Unplug all electronics that don't need to used like the television, coffee maker, and home computers. Lower the temperature on your water heater. If you can, leave a car in the driveway and ...

Well, I must say that I did enjoy my "down week" last week. I ran a total of only 12 miles for the week. No runs were longer than 3 miles and I only ran that distance twice. I discovered a website that helps you plan your routes without having to use your vehicle and odometer. It's at www.mapmyrun.com just in case you're interested. This week, it's back to the grind and a decent increase from 2 weeks ago. My 3 mile run on Tuesday has increased to 4 miles. I will run a total of 15 miles this week with that total increasing by 1 mile over the next 2 weeks before having another "down week". I am, so far, very encouraged with my progress. Week 1, I could not run 3 miles without stopping. This week, my 4 miler on Tuesday was very comfortable and I averaged 10:31 per mile. My shorter runs of ...
