It was a fall day back in 2007 when I decided that I wanted to run the New York City Marathon the following year. I trained. I sacrificed. I ran it.
As an athlete growing up and college football player, running always seemed like a punishment rather than a form of excitement or sport. Getting started with my first Marathon training program was a huge challenge and without the guidance from runner friends or the world wide web, I possibly would not have made it.
Once I allowed myself, I did fall in love with running and everything associated with it. I loved all the gear your could buy. I loved the training and mapping long runs. I loved the incremental increase each week and hitting goals. I loved setting PR’s. I loved race days. I loved crossing the finish line.
After I completed my first Marathon I was hooked and I quickly decided to run another; the 2009 Chicago Marathon.
Now I write this blog to provide tips and reviews to runners.
