New Beginnings

My last decade centered around family, work and racquetball. As I turned 40 a year ago my racquetball related injuries kept adding up and I decided to take on something new this decade.
It took a year and half to get started, but now I have. I am taking up running instead of racquetball. Though I am not a a runner, and I am slow and too fat I decided to go big and signed up for the Chicago Marathon in October.
Last Week I took my first training steps with a short road run with a running group in Crystal Lake.
The picture shows my very first step. In seven months I will post a picture of my last steps as I finish the Marathon. The long journey starts now.
