Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!

My training plan had me doing some speed exercises last night. I decided to change that since I haven't had a good 5K since Monday. The GPS on my phone was a bit spotty throughout the run and kept throwing off my splits but I ended up with 3 miles in 22:30 for a 7:29 pace. Not bad, I think those speed exercises are working, I felt great through 2.5 miles. Good run, lacing them back up tonight.
