Lyden's Life Lessons: Getting Real with Ourselves (and Our Emotions) Adair Lyden Mar 15, 2016

Cue the sad violin music; hear the broken record play. I'm going to be quite honest with you right now: I feel awful writing sob stories week after week. While these articles have been filled with life lessons, I am sick of them. I want to write a success story, not a sob story. And what's ironic about this week is that my "sob" story is one without the sobs -- and that's the issue.

Throughout the entire day, I was somewhat agitated and frustrated just with the simple things because it was my SAT test day and race day and everything else rolled into one.

Lyden's Life Lessons - Dwell Vs. Dream Adair Lyden Oct 12, 2015

I like to compare my running journey to a long run on the 10-mile clay trail at Clermont in Central Florida. Just like a long run, my journey has its ups, downs, unexpected turns, dark moments, the moment when the sun shines, and a finish line -- one I cannot see. Right now I would say I am at "mile 7" in my high school running journey.
