No one would ever call me, by any stretch of the imagination, an athlete. For all of my adult life, I have been severely out of shape, not even capable of walking 1/4 mile without huffing and puffing. However, 2013 is the year this changes. At 47, I’m certainly never going to be an elite athlete, in the accepted sense of that term. I may never become a “fast” runner, as compared to others who’ve been serious runners. But that’s not going to stop me from getting into the best shape of my life and working to compete only against myself. In this blog, I plan to detail my progress toward that goal. And I have some lofty goals planned for this year! (gulp)
