Risk taking 101

Moonset near Disney World
Lower center, just above tree line – the moon is setting as i leave for the gym.


Cycling 25 miles round trip just to go to the gym was a one-time solution to skip a day of running to rest a sore leg.

That was two weeks ago.

Now i’m 96% convinced that i will take an indefinite break from running.

Could be a month.

Might be six months.

Time will tell.

Feeling exceptionally creative (choosing to bike is just a simple, but dramatic departure from normal) because underneath the physical focus is a work initiative that’s going to blow the roof off what i’ve done in the past.

And breaking free (intentionally or unintentionally) from normal is very inspiring.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

This website is about our physical health. To easily and safely leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s spiritual health website, click here.
