I used to blog about life and such, but it has been a while and I have been out of touch. I made the decision to resurrect this blog to chronicle my journey to complete my first 50 miler. I began running in 2010 for weight loss. I was 220 pounds and needed to do something. I started running to cross train to get in shape for club soccer. My first year I ran about 150 miles. I didn't know what I was doing, kind of like this blog thing. I ran in a Nike Dart 7. My first workout was a 1.95 mile walk in thirty minutes on March 20th 2011. Six days later I went for my first run, 2 miles in 29:00. I don't know if I was really hooked then but I have not stopped yet. Running has it's ups and downs, its called hill repeats, and so does life. I hope this blog will be encouraging to my fellow runners and readers. Please join me on this journey to pursuit 50 miles.
