Was it a Sinus Infection? San Journals – 2

…continued from journal 1… Two years ago this past October, I woke up with a serious sinus infection and a headache. I didn’t even know that it was a sinus infection at the time; I thought I had a cold. And a headache. Turns out it probably wasn’t a sinus infection, either. But that news wouldn’t come for nearly two years. At the time (October 2013), all I knew was that I felt like crap and couldn’t concentrate on anything. I remember writing about it (on the now … Read more…

Pay It Forward, she said – San Journals – 1

Pay it FORWARD, she said. Perhaps not with that much fervor. But she meant it. Pay it forward. I try to do that on a regular basis in many areas of my life. It’s selfish, really. Wanting to do one better, because someone did for you… Pay it forward. And so I begin. Telling my story about what exactly happened two (plus) years ago and all that has followed. It’s a long story. And I’ve put off writing it down (for the most part) for many reasons. Who … Read more…


Where Have We Been – Relaunching 6 Miles Daily dot com

6 miles daily dot com

Colette and I began this site back in July 2015, hoping to encourage each other and all of you, to just simply move more. To eat better. Be hydrated. And to get us all in the routine of doing all that on a daily basis. Launching 6 Miles Daily . com has been a dream of mine for a long time and we were so excited to get going with it all.

Hitting Goals and Staying Focused!

Hitting Goals and Staying Focused

Boy HOWDY, we are off and running here at 6 miles daily and I couldn’t be more excited. AND thrilled for the push that Colette is giving me to finally get this going. She keeps apologizing, mostly because she has absolutely no idea what it takes on the back end to make a functional website actually function (her words). But it’s also a good thing because up until we did this thing together, she really had no idea what it is I DO for a living. So I’m … Read more…


Doing 6 Miles Daily

Doing 6 miles daily

C (that’s short for Colette, which I find difficult to type out, I’ll explain that further along…) mentioned the other day (I’ll be starting lots of posts in much this same manner and with a terrifically conversational tone, too…) that she keeps forgetting that it’s: 6 miles daily. Not a 6 mile work out. But 6 miles total. Daily. Great point, my friend. Perhaps, we should tell the folks about my concept in a little more detail. Because doing 6 miles daily may seem like a lot. Especially … Read more…


Welcome to 6 Miles Daily dot com

Colette Running

I read once that Will Smith believes you only have to (run) do 6 miles a day and you can then eat anything you want and… Hmmm. I read that and what I “heard” were a couple things: run 6 miles a day… The fabulous C, getting in her steps. …well I can’t/won’t/shouldn’t (it’s not really good for all your joints and whatnot) to run… …and… I can eat anything I want… So I did. Forgetting that I should at least try and move those 6 miles a … Read more…
