Well, friends, I’ve started another blog. All you pale, mom’s basement dwelling, blog reading/writing types might be interested in the topic. I’m getting in shape (I might be out of the basement, but I’m still a fatty), by training to run the 2009 Broad Street Run in Philadelphia. It’s easier than a marathon (16.2 miles easier), but still hard enough that I couldn’t possibly do it without getting into shape.
The blog is called Broad Street Runner, and, yes, I’ve been updating it pretty regular for about a week without telling you. Sorry. The idea is document the experience of going from a fat, lazy slob to a healthy, running slob. I’ll write about my improvements as a runner, any races I participate in, things I learn about running and stuff relating running. Basically, if you wanna read a fat guy talking about his shoes, well, then I’ve got the blog for you. Otherwise, if maybe you want to start running yourself, then, hopefully the blog well serve as a decent resource, and a reminder that out there, somewhere, is a fat guy trying to run for himself.
