#RapOnTheRun: Rick Ross, Setting Intentions &Taking Action


The opening bars of Rick Ross’“Rich Forever” off of the Rich Forever mixtape is my favorite track of his of all time. The opening grabs my attention everytime: “I remember being blind to it / till the day I put my mind to it…”  There is truth in those Rick Ross lyrics.

I used to think it was the fact that Rozay has near flawless production on >80% of his tracks. But now, I know it’s deeper than that. Rick Ross has a way with words that draw me in.

Back in January of this year, I set my mind to accomplish a goal of running 1000 miles in 2014. Back then, it seemed almost impossible.

Last week I hit the 800 plus miles ran in 2014 milestone. I now only have 200 miles more to run in 2014 to hit that 1000 mile goal.
