First post

Ha! So now I am a blogger.  Here goes the first post of ChuckRuns.

I don't have a real message or thought to share.  So a little about me...

Married since 1973, 2 grown sons, am just passing the middle of my fifties.  
IT professional.
Christian (trusting in Jesus for eternity,  plus here and now) since 12 years old.

I have been running for almost four years.  I started in a YMCA bootcamp program so I could get in better shape - both fitness and visibly.  I really liked the fitness gains and the comraderie of the group.  So I have been at it ever since.  More than half of my miles are run with friends.

My last 3 years have had increasing mileage totals: just under 1000 for 2008, 1500 for 2009, 1919 for 2010.

I have done races from 5k to 50 miles and especially like marathons and trail running.
Preparing for the Boston Marathon on April 18, 2011.

My one training rule (sort of) is to do no more than one out of breath workout per week.

Ok, enough.  Go run, it's good for you.  Even just a little.
