MY RUNNING LIFE:

I consider myself a lifetime runner.  I ran track and cross country in middle school.  In college, I ran a little to blow off steam.  Heidi was running marathons whenever we met.  I just picked up the mileage a little to spend quality time together.  Since then, I have kept running to keep my mental and physical health balanced.  I must say I have grown to love running.  Probably my worst experience running was my first marathon.  It was the 2006 Derby Festival Marathon.  I felt that I could BQ.  Little did I know that I was not even close to being ready physically or mentally.  It took 8 more years and several more tries to BQ.  I finally qualified in 2014 at Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach.  I felt best at this marathon finishing the last 10 miles at a sub 7 minute pace.  

Lately, I have noticed that I've actually been getting slower.  Therefore, I'm studying my running style and researching how I can switch things up so that I can get back to improving.  I will keep you up to date on how this is working out.
