So, here we go again with the blogging thing. I've always wanted to blog, but never seemed to be very consistent with the darn thing, so I just forgot most of the time. I think having a baby will do that.
The purpose of this blog is to be a venue for successes, struggles, and general venting and/or celebrating related to my new hobby, running.
I've always wanted to be a runner, ever since I was a kid. My Dad very successfully was a runner, competing in multiple races and the NYC Marathon. He is now in his 60's and is running once more after a hiatus. He is my main inspiration for trying running again. Again you say? Well, I tried running when I was a teenager, and absolutely hated it! It was an acute torture, and I could not imagine people doing it just for the sake of doing it. How can anyone enjoy the shin splints, sore hamstrings, sucking air, throat aches...Madness I say.
That was until I came upon a book called Run Your Butt Off from Runners World. No I am not sponsored by Runners World, I just really like this book.
Anywho, this blog is in theory a place to post about my progress. Hopefully I won't abandon this blog. Heh.
