one year ago today i returned to running with a mile and half walk-run-walk in my neighborhood. i remember my son coming out on his bike to witness me and i remember him referring to me as "pathetic". my inspiration came via reconnecting with high school friends on facebook. it just took reading that a few of them are running marathons for me to get enough inspiration to make a shoe purchase and make a commitment to justifying that purchase.
it has been an awesome year. i love and appreciate running more today than i ever did as a childhood runner.
- 70 pounds gone
- 1,703 running miles consumed
- marathoned/ultramarathoned in 4 states
- became a "marathon maniac"
- popped off a 5:43 mile
- kept if rolling for 50 miles on 9.11
thanks everyone for the support and encouragement. i look forward to seeing where i am at one year from today.
