Hey there. My name is Ray. I started this blog a few years ago as a way to keep me motivated on my journey from semi-couch potato to half-marathon. A funny thing happened along the way; I wound up really enjoying running. Since my first half in October 2011, I’ve completed an additional six halves and one marathon (The picture on the left is from that race’s finish line). And because I am pretty competitive, I have my eyes set on completing at least one half in all 50 states. How about that for a life-long goal?
When I am not running, I am busy at work or being tormented by one of my favorite New York sports teams. Oh, and I am pretty sarcastic. That is all.
