At the start of 2013 I decided to make a change.

I decided to start running.

I was lousy at running, hadn’t done it before in any serious way.  Dreaded the 12-Minute Runs in high-school Gym class.  From 2008 to 2011 I was a member of a Crossfit box in Langley, BC, Canada (I really enjoyed it, and it did a lot for me, but the cost and other commitments pulled me away).  We did some running there (100m, 200m, 400m intervals) but nothing for real distance.

2012 was a slow year for my personal fitness.

So in February of 2013, I started the Vancouver Sun’s “Learn to Run 10k” program on my own.  It’s a good system, and came well-recommended from friends.

I chose to run Minimalist.  I had worn Vibram FiveFingers shoes at Crossfit and liked the feel, so I kept with them when going from Zero (experience) to Run(ning).

This blog is a journal of my experiences.  I’m not exceptionally fast, skilled, or special.  Just a guy who’s 37, has two fun kids and a wonderful wife, who wants to see what he can make of himself.

Check back often, see where I’m at.
