How to Stay Motivated During the Dark Days of Winter

The winter is always a tough time to run. With the short days and the cold weather, it’s hard to convince yourself to put on those layers and head out the door. Once you do, though, it’s well worth it. I find winter runs to be some of my best: there’s no humidity so it’s much easier to breathe, the streets are less crowded, and once you warm up you can go as long as you want without getting all sticky and sweaty.

“You are the creator of reality.”

For decades, Deepak Chopra has shared his research, learning, and expertise to help us define our world. In his new book, You Are the Universe, Chopra and Menas C. Kafatos, PhD, challenge us to think about our knowledge of how the world came to be and to apply this knowledge to our personal reality. Throughout the book, we explore the mystery behind scientifically founded theories and see how we can impact the reality these theories create. With this understanding, we learn more about who we are and how we influence the world in ways previously thought to be beyond our reach.

Narrated by Kaleo Griffith, this audiobook will help you see your actions and those of all around you in a new light and will encourage you to take control of your own reality. Be sure to enjoy this audiobook before you watch the You Are the Universe PBS special, airing in early March, to get the full impact of Chopra’s message and start making a difference in your life and the world around you.

Listen While You Run: Fall 2016

This Fall has been one of the best that I can remember.  With perfect crisp mornings leading to warmer afternoons and the beautiful colors of the fall foliage, I couldn’t help but want to get out for longer runs to take in the amazing season.  I definitely was not the only one either.  Every weekend the streets have been filled with runners out for a casual jog or logging their miles for their upcoming races.  There are those jogging in groups and others running solo, taking in the sounds of their surroundings, or plugged into their phones listening to a great playlist or a thrilling story.

What We’re Listening To

Summer is basically made for relaxing and reading, but just when you were getting used to long summer evenings and sunny days at the beach, the sun begins to set earlier and days begin to go quicker. The Fall frenzy begins and the craziness of life picks back up.  Reading is unfortunately (at least for me) not at the top of the priority list, so this is when I really appreciate a good audiobook.  Read more
