Attempted Runner.

I am a runner…..

I want to be a runner. I typically cannot run a full mile. I jog, sometimes walk. I sign up for 5ks, 10ks and so far 1 half marathon. This sites purpose is to encourage, motivate and keep you (but really this is for me) running. I will be training to improve all my errors from the past. I’ll adjust days to make up for the ones I’ve missed. I’ll add in strength and cross training. I’ll eat better. I’ll do it for reals this time. This is me and my running. My aches and pains. My Race Day experiences and running woes. My PR’s, my DNF’s (hopefully not!!!) and everything else in between.

I am the Attempted Runner.

Sorry to leave so many replies on your (awesome) blog in one day. I just discovered it, so forgive me.

You’re not an attempted runner…. you ARE a runner. I firmly believe a jogger becomes a runner the very first time they hit the starting line at a race. I think it was Jim Fixx who originally said that and he certainly knew a few things about running.

You’ve certainly inspired me to push myself even harder, and I’m 100% in your corner. Rock it, own it, but mostly just enjoy it. After all, isn’t that why we really run?

Well, thanks!! I went from attempted runner, convicted slacler. To just attempted runner. The definition of attempted pretty much suits all runners at all distances; to make an effort to do, accomplish (something great). I didn’t do so well in the past. I half asses a lot and got injured. I’m really trying this time. I may run a 5k in the low 40s, a 10k in 1.5 and a half in 3.5 but all those times WILL go down. I got my own determination and the encouragement from people who enjoy the same things. They always say that running isn’t really s team sport since its just you going the work, but it sure as hell is a team atmosphere!
