Running for Sanity

This here's a blog I started so that I can vent about my workout woes and brag about the good stuff! :-)
I love to eat, therefore I run. I also do it to maintain my sanity and to beat the stress out with every step! As the inexorable slide towards 40 continues, I've stepped up my goals with an eye towards crossing a few thing off of my "before I hit 40" list, like a marathon!
I thought this would be a good way to see how far I've come, and maybe commiserate about the tougher ...

Saw a couple of your post, one on moving towards minimalist shoes. When I moved this direction I put my regular shoes on the back of my car and ran my short block (which is about .4 km) and then switched shoe. I did this for a while and then ran twice around it (about .8 km) and then after a while I moved up to 1.2 km. Once I had build up a bit of readiness in my body I then went around my long block (2.5 km) before the switch and so gradual over several months I switch up to all my running in less shoe.

I am also a Chi Runner, which is a running form based on the principles of Tai Chi, for energy efficiency and injury prevention. If you have a curiosity about it we have a team here at sparks.

I am 57 soon to be 58 and ran my last have last weekend with my Grand son. He did a 1:55 and I did a 2:16. I was slowed by having to remove gravel from my shoes three times, but am not entirely unhappy with my time. (I am not really a racer, but it gives me a chance to run a little with my oldest grandson so we do a few events each year. We did a three generation last year with his brother and his dad (my son).

Since you are switching to minimalist running, and I am thinking of doing the same, I hope you don't mind that I added you as a friend so that I can follow your progress! I look forward to getting to know you!

Hi! I saw a friend of mine commented on your blog, and I see from your page you ran MCM '11! Congrats! I did too...it was my first marathon. I totally remember running by that sign around Haines Point - too funny!!

Good luck in your running, and congrats on MCM!
