I am 48 yrs old and have been married for 27 yrs. My wife and I have 2 children. One in college and the other in high school. I enjoy running and spending time with my family.

I have been running off and on for the past 40 yrs in some shape or form. I wouldn't call myself an expert but definitely an expert at stopping and starting back up.

I hope to pass on some of the knowledge I have gained throughout the yrs. I really try to give the real deal when I write. There are so many articles out there some good some bad but I have found that they tailor to the more advanced runner and there is not much in the line of beginner runners.

As a beginner runner there are many thoughts and feelings going into it. The biggest "tip" I could give to someone is to never give up and if you don't think you can go on....you can....Don't beat yourself up we all have good and bad days. Just keep going and it will get easier but remember easier doesn't come often but when it does embrace it and be proud of yourself no matter your level.

Running is definitely a mind game just don't let it get your mind....
