At 44 I took up running in mid 2008 as a way to get back into shape. I began with a modified couch to 5k and just kept going. I ran my first half marathon that November and my first full in April 2009. I now regularly run marathon and ultra marathon events as well as some 5, 10, and 15k races. My preference is to run on trails but most of my training during the week takes place on roads. Come and join me on this adventure called life.
