This blog is a way of documenting my life. A conversation with myself, aloud. The blog was originally about a trip to Korea and other random interests. It has since turned into a running blog when I started running regularly since early 2009.
I got motivated after suffering through a 5:41 marathon in Nov 2008. Since then I have improved by simply getting out there and being consistent. It felt great to be able to run faster and to be fitter than my younger self.
Life is a series of decisions and changes. After running for 3 years, I have dialed the training down since March 2012. I still love to run, but in shorter bursts. The schedule is gone. I run by feel and make every run a fun run. There is more time for rest. I am no longer chasing times. I feel that it is not sensible to beat myself to the ground with hard training and sacrifice health, merely to obtain a lower number on the clock.
2012 has also been a year of health problems. Rather than breaking personal records, staying healthy has become my number one goal.
I now enjoy cooking, resting well, lifting, and living a simple, healthy, and happy life.
Thanks for visiting. Have a good day.
