It's nice to meet you!
After lurking around all your blogs for many many months, I've decided to take the plunge and create a running blog of my very own. Plus I'm hoping to win some of those really awesome giveaways. Not sure what I'm doing AT ALL, so I'm feeling a little insecure, a little out of my comfort zone, not unlike how it felt when I first started running. When I first started running I began by putting one foot in front of the other, I've seen people running after all, but the whole time out I was fretting about whether my form was right or wrong or whether my shoes and outfit screamed "slow ass ROOKIE!!!" or how far one single mile really is. One single mile is faaaar.
Like everything else, now that I've been running for a few months, entered a few races, I know pretty much where I stand in this running business. I've got most of the right gear and I don't wander around wide-eyed and lost at the 5K's. I can pretty much size up other runners in the first hundred yards and can usually tell which ones started out way too fast.
I'm intend get faster and fitter and hopefully make some friends along the way.
