The Begining

 All my life I have wanted to be a runner but never knew how to push past the discomfort and pain of being new runner.So sometime around the middle of this summer I started my journey of being a runner.It had been weighing heavily on my mind for several months  that this might be my last chance to be a runner since a had just turned 50 a little over 6 months ago.I guess you could say I had that now or never feeling.So I started running,a little running and a little walking, seems that is how it all starts until there was more running than walking.That is where I am now running about 3/4 of my 3.1 mile run,and doing it all around 36 minutes.
So this is the begining of my running journey and my jouranl about the progress of a 50 year old begining runner.



  1. That is super! My dad ran his first marathon at 52 and his first ultra at 53. It can be done! He is now 80 and can still run 10km.

  2. The hardest part about finishing is getting started! Great job...it sounds like you make it through the hardest part of running!
