I live in St. John’s, NL, Canada. I started running back in 2001 as a way to try to get healthy as I approached my 40’s. Now I am approaching my 50’s and I have completed dozens of short races , a number of 1/2 marathons and 7 marathons., with plans for number 8 in Chicago 2012 . I feel so much more healthier than when I started running.
I enjoy running with others , both for camaraderie as well as the challenge of trying to keep up with faster runners, ultimately making me train harder and get faster.
PBs make for a large day, always!
