What am I doing here?
What am I doing creating a blog about running?
There are literally hundreds, probably thousands, of blogs about running. Yet today, in a moment of weakness, I created another one. Another piece of worthless crap to add to the ever-growing pile of worthless crap on the Internet.
Or, maybe not.
I’ve held off creating a blog about running for so long now. I figured, everyone else is already doing it, I have never been one to follow the crowd. To do what’s popular.
But, I read so many amazing running blogs, and I get so inspired by them. I see normal, everyday people running, racing, and LIVING. And I see a community of running bloggers that I admire, respect, and (sometimes) emulate.
And, in just a few short weeks, I will begin training for my first.ever.marathon.
I decided I want to document this experience. A way to capture the emotion, the pain, the journey. And I am going to do this for myself. Not for anyone else. Just like I am doing the marathon for myself. Not to win, not to beat a specific time, but to show myself I can. I’ll write more about my goals for this marathon in upcoming posts.
And if someone wants to come along for the ride, so be it.
