one Man of a Certain Age's journey to a healthier lifestyle

Welcome to my fitness blog. I started running in early 2012, having set my sights on the Walt Disney World Half Marathon which I ran in January 2013. (You can read about that in my other blog). I intend to update this blog weekly with training progress and run reports. Please follow and join this blog (links below) for updates. If you want to share please feel free to, there are links to share via Facebook or Twitter below as well. You can also follow me on twitter. And please comment letting me know what you think!

Come find me at the Route 66 Marathon!

Hi all,

I will be running the +Route 66 Marathon this weekend - November 24. It's my first full marathon! I am going to do a review of the race both here as well as n my shiny new RoaCA Podcast and I'd love to hear what folks think. So look for me at the expo and the race - or better yet email me at or ping me on Facebook and let me know you'll be there so we can meet up and discuss the race!

Once I get my bib number and corral placement I will post it here, but I anticipate being in one of the last corrals and I expect to be finishing near the back (especially as my back is still a bit sore so I will probably take it extra slow). Depending on the weather I hope to be wearing a WISH team running shirt making me easier to spot.

I also plan to be at the expo on Saturday at about 1:00. I heard a rumor of some sort of blogger meet up - I hope to check that out. I'll probably stay at the expo until at least 3:00 or so. I will be wearing a dark blue crew neck long sleave shirt with a big "Sleepy Hollow Half Marathon" logo - so I should be pretty easy to spot.

Hope to see some of you there!
