Well that sure didn't take long. My good friend Sean out in Colorado correctly identified the inaugural "movie quote" contest from RUN episode 1. The movie is "Outlaw Josey Wales" and the character who said the quote was the river ferry boat operator. Sean is an avid cyclist and hard corps mountain bike rider. You can check out his new blog here. Congrats Sean!
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.
