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. Heck, I even decided to compete in a marathon [the photo on the left is proof I finished…barely!]. Since my first half in October 2011, I’ve completed quite a few. 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 physically running, I am figuratively on the run at work or being tormented by any one of
my favorite New York sports teams.
