I work full-time and do some sports writing on the side. Since I have an extensive writing background, I decided to start this blog with the hope of sharing my running stories to entertain and maybe even inspire my fellow runners.
I’m a regular person just like you. I’m not someone from the world of elite running. I can relate to you and your struggles. I understand you have to balance work and family with your running.
