holy moley, it's a running blog
How I got here: I started running about 2-1/2 years ago. Through running I found fast-women.com, and through fast-women.com I found out about Alison's blog on eliterunning.com. When Alison recently asked for volunteer bloggers for the site, I decided to give it a shot. Thanks, Alison, for setting this up.
A little about me: I am not an elite runner, though I love running and am serious about training. I'm female, masters, married, no kids. I live in Florida and train with a local running club that has some very good runners in its ranks (alas, I am not one of them). I'm currently training for my second marathon (Chicago) and running around 80 miles a week.
I came into running as a non-athlete and ex-chainsmoker, and it never ceases to amaze me that I'm running at all, and I'm not completely horrible at it. With this blog I hope to show (someone, anyone, no one) what it's like to train when you're just an average joe.
