6x Exercise for 2022: Ran 4.14 miles in Waikele (Ran 16.9 miles total for 2022). 🏃‍♂️

After darkness took over the world, a thousand birds embarked on a treacherous journey to find the rising phoenix to bring order and peace. After much suffering from the journey, only thirty remained. The rest gave up. The thirty birds realized that they themselves are the rising phoenix. 🕊🦅🕊🦅

Stories can transform your psyche. In turn, you can change the world. 😃

Running and Writing


I ran 4.35 miles on 1/3/2022. I love writing fiction and running. They complement each other. 

One keeps me moving in my mind. The other keeps me moving physically.

One exercises my ideas. The other exercises my mind and body.

Both alleviate my anxiety and sadness.

Both increase my happiness.

One exposes my vulnerability, strength, fear, and hope. The other fights to delay my death, so I can share my stories of vulnerability, strength, fear, and hope to encourage you to live the best you can with love, compassion, and empathy.

One gives me a high from dopamine, serotonin, and endorphin. The other gives me a high from dopamine and catharsis.

Both require discipline.

Both give me purpose.

Both can be challenging, even difficult at times.

Both teach me the importance of process.

Both are very rewarding.
