Still battling this cold so running yesterday consisted of a 2 mile trail run and that was about it. So not much to discuss on the subject of running. So I decided to have a little questionnaire on todays post. Stole this post idea from a great blog I follow, Barefoottc (http://barefoottc.wordpress.com/). And yes I let him know I was stealing this blog idea lol.
The Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How of Running!
Who(do you run with?)
What(distance do you run?)
Where(do you usually run?)
When(do you usually run?)
Why(do you run?)
How(did you get into running)
Who - I normally run by myself but lately have been including my beagle Buster in my runs. Plus some family runs at the track here and there.
What - I've been fond of the 5K because of the speed, but as we run more I've been feeling I need to get into the half and full marathon to knock those off my list of accomplishments.
Where - Trail runs on my lunch break but vast majority is parks and roads around our neighborhood.
When - Some runs during the day on my lunch break but most of my runs come in the evening time after the kids are sleeping.
Why - Started running because my fiance wanted us to get healthier (she is the best) and now run for the pure joy. Really love the training, competition, and the community.
How - Fiance made me, enough said. But really, we needed to be healthier, she started us down this path and now our entire family is better for it. We would still be couch potatoes if it wasnt for her.
Look forward to seeing your responses on this Fun Tuesday!
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!
