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!

How was your week last week?  Did you log as many miles as you wanted to?


  1. Ok, you are inspiring me on my quest to become more accountable in my runs...
    I didn't log last week's mileage, or data...but I will this week...
    For a start 4.02 miles today 8:18/ was a rough start, the winter is wearing on me, and I almost went on the treadmill because I was tired of the cold. But I read your post, and thought I would give the GPS watch a try. It had a hard time locating satelites (5 minutes). I ended up putting in on the porch and waiting inside because I didn't want to get too cold hanging around. I make it sound like it's below 0 or something, it's not it's 22...I am ready for spring!
    Thanks for giving me the nudge I needed to get out the door!

    1. No problem, glad I could help lol. Wow 22, I would be DYING in that weather, below zero or not that is cold. We are around 80 degrees here in AZ so I couldnt take that kind of cold. Hats off to you.


Thank you for your comment!
