but I wish my throat didn't hurt and I didn't have that congested "in the tunnel" feeling. No pt for me today but will instead look to tomorrow. I'm glad to have my podcast up and running. This first introductory episode was all over the map as I rambled a bit. I expect I'll go on tangents every now and then but that's alright. I will have a plan for each episode for what I will talk about but it will likely be a plan to deviate from. My overall goal for the podcast is to be involved with the running community at large; to participate in a way that gives back to and engages in the conversation made possible in this transparent electronic age. I think that primarily it will serve as a diary in the same way as this blog, just in a different format.
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.
