Today I had a nice run along the Mt Vernon trail of 5 miles. It was a bit brisk and breezy, but with all the stories on runcast.tv and twitter about running in snowstorms and bitter cold I thought I was pretty lucky all in all. It made me thankful for the relatively mild conditions I was experiencing. I thought about stuff I would talk about on a podcast. All I need is a way to record myself, a way to edit and produce, and a way to host it.... other than those minor details I'm all set.
As a retired Marine aviator, running has been a part of my life for... well, pretty much my whole life. In the Corps, I ran because I had to stay in shape as part of the job. Now, I run because I want to. I signed up for my first half marathon just before I got out of the service as a way to make sure that I kept pt'ing, even though I no longer "had" to. But I soon discovered that I really enjoyed distance running. I started this blog on a whim to see if it would be fun to keep a running (sorry) dialog on the training and events I participate in, as well as share other interests.
