I've been running off and on since around 1992, when I joined the cross country team in high school. I really wanted to play basketball, but I didn't make the team. I don't really remember why I joined though. Perhaps it was a way to get in shape for tryouts the next time around, or maybe it was just something to do. Either way (or something completely different), I've been running since.
There were stretches where I didn't run at all, but (so far) I've always come back to it. I recently (November of 2012) started running again after some time away. Right before the holidays (with travel and all that) is not really the best time to try to start a new habit. I picked it back up though mid January (2013) and have tried to keep consistent.
Here, I'll be collecting information about my runs. I'm sure that if anyone ever stumbled across this page, they would find it incredibly boring. That said, I'm still going to maintain it . . . at least for a while.
As noted on the Equipment
page, I'm now using Strava
for my run logging along with my Garmin watch. I can start my run session on the watch, which has GPS, HR, etc., and when the run is over it will sync its data with Strava for logging.

I think I’ll take a break from posting every run here. I’ll still be logging them and updating the chart on the running page, but I’ve been finding that the posts seem repetitive and boring to me. There’s only so … Continue reading
It was much cooler this morning which made the run a bit more bearable. I ran the same course as Thursday and was able to complete it without walking this time (which was nice). I was also able to convince … Continue reading
It was another hot one today (~ 90 degrees) and there was practically no wind to help with the cooling. I didn’t do the group run tonight (I had to stop off at the house and couldn’t make it back … Continue reading
