A beginning

I’ve written blog posts before. But not like this.

For some time I’ve toyed with the idea of starting a running blog. But I didn’t. Why? I felt too amateur to do so. I’ve only been running for 19 months.

I started running to get off my diabetes medication. But I ran my first 5k in Nov. 2008.

The next one I ran I knocked 10 minutes off my time. That was April 2010.

I ran my first 10K on Thanksgiving Day 2010.

I was scared out of my mind. But I ended up registering for a half marathon the next June.

I was ahead in my training, so I ran my first half marathon in Oakland on March 27 at the Oakland Running Festival.

I’ve run three more since. I’m training for a marathon I hope to be able to compete.

To get there, I’m running three half marathons in October (I hope).

This is my journey.
