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!

Running is a FAMILY!

Short update on my running.  I ran the last couple days for 3 and 4 miles.  Taking it really slow right now and even including walking in the mix to keep the impact on my knees down.

The real post for today is regarding the running community and how great everyone is.  My fiance participated in the Lost Dutchman Marathon this weekend completing the 10K event.  Due to my injuries, the kids and I were her cheering section and pit crew.  As we stood there seeing her leave the start line and as she returned to the finish line, of course we were cheering our heads off.  The thing I really noticed was all the wonderful people along with us cheering for everyone just because they were out there running.  This really touches me because you see if all over these events, people genuinly being happy for others just because they are at the event.  As we finished and were walking back to our vehicle, my fiance was expressing her excitement because this was her first official finishers medal.  Overhearing this, a lady next to us congratulated her on her first finishers medal.  That is amazing.  I am so glad my whole family is running, the running community is filled with amazing people and I look forward to sharing many more moments with them in the future.

How do you feel about the running community?  Have you noticed how wonderful everyone is at these events?

Plan is to run another few miles tonight.
