Moe, for better or worse

This blog used to be called "one year in the life of a short fat runner"; then it was called "Am I a runner? you decide." I've decided running isn't the thing I need to talk about'll come up for sure, but it's just one part of me, so I think I'll just call this blog: Moe, for better or worse.

January 2, 2006--a new year

My first post on my first blog. I'm hoping that by keeping a public record of my running and training, it'll keep me on track and on target. My goals are pretty simple: run the Indy Mini (half marathon) in May. Keep running. Do another sprint tri this summer (probably another Danskin). Keep running. Believe in myself and my abilities. Keep running.

There's a theme here, yes, I know.

I am slow as molasses, overweight, asthmatic and eveytime I walk out the door to run, I think I'm going to fail. Generally I don't. But I still feel that way.

So here I am, bearing my soul to those of you who've found me and choose to read this. Frankly, if 2 people even see this I'll be surprised, but hey, it's worth a shot. Stranger things have happened.

Oh, and I ran a 4 mile race yesterday. 46:08. Like I said, slow. Really really slow. But I ran the whole thing, and it was a tough course, 3 miles of uphill and one terrific last mile, all down hill. Started off my year on a good foot! Feet?
