Welcome to I Should Be Running – a blog that explores running’s relationship with the human mind, body, and spirit.
My name is Daniel LaPonsie. I’ve been running regularly since late 2015, and writing since I was old enough to put letters on a page.
Just like you, I am not an elite. I’m a “mid-pack” runner, and I have a day job. I’m still fine-tuning my weekly routine, fighting to fit running into a busy schedule, and still learning as much as I can about running
– both as a sport, and as a vehicle for personal fitness.
As of the time of this running, I haven’t yet run a marathon. The longest distance I’ve raced is half-marathon (13.1 miles). My first marathon should be in April 2019, the Rock & Roll: Nashville. (You can see my past races marked out on this map.)
Like most writers, I use my writing to better understand topics that interest me. On this blog, you’ll find a lot about psychology and positive thinking, running as a spiritual exercise, and a little about physical fitness.
I also share regular bits of my own running journey; and I invite you to share yours. You can drop your thoughts / feelings / opinions / experiences in the comments section.
