Five leadership insights you can learn from running a 5K

In my first post, I talk about Preparing For My First 5K. It has been a few weeks since I published that post and I completed my first 5K on October 15th, 2011.

It was a great time running with my brother Steve, his friend James, and my youth pastor Rick. Steve and James decided to dress up as super heroes to run the race. You can see a great picture of them below.

James provided a great inspirational story. A year ago he was involved in a bad motorcycle wreck and had extensive reconstructive surgery from the waist down. During his recovery, he has lost 40lbs and become very health conscious. It was my pleasure to run with him in this 5K.

Are you living your dream or watching others live theirs?

Now, onto the content!

Football season is upon us. Many of us get excited about our favorite teams and carve out time to watch them play. We spend our Sunday afternoons, Monday nights, Thursday nights, and more in front of the TV cheering on our favorite teams and players.

Top Posts For October 2011

Can you believe that October is done? It seems like October flew by.

It was also my first, full month of my blog. I hope you have enjoyed the content on the site and will keep coming back.

Today, I am taking time to reflect on my top posts for the month.

Here are the top five posts for October 2011:

  1. We Were Made To Be Courageous: This was the third post on the blog and my first giveaway. I gave my review of the movie Courageous and gave away a promotional poster.
  2. Bigger Than Your Life: Leaving A Legacy As A Leader: A surprising post to see in this spot of the list. It is one of the newest posts and landed in spot 2 of the list.
