A little about me: “I’m not a runner.” That was me in 2011. I went to the gym and spent my primary focus on weight training and left cardio to the “if I have time for it” category. For a few years I had wanted to run a local 5K called the Samson Stomp and Romp at our local zoo. But I always seemed to miss the date and realize too late that it had already been run. In 2012, after missing it yet again, I decided to run a different 5K – took me 10 months to commit to one – and I finally ran it. And it was tough, a lot tougher than I expected. From that point forward, I made the commitment, albeit slowly at first, to become a better runner no matter where it led or shall lead me.
So, where am I now you may ask. Well, I’ve just finished my 8th marathon and I’ve also ventured into the cycling and swimming to accompany my weightlifting as other athletic options besides running. No completed races or competitions for those other events so far, but who knows what the future may hold.
