Hello there, fellow runners! I'm Chuck, aka PopsInDenton, from Denton, Texas. My daughter turned me on to Zen Labs' great apps and I'll be starting my training Monday, May 30 (after most of the Memorial Day weekend).
I haven't run any significant distance for almost 35 years. So, everything will be different than I remember... especially because of my age (57) and my weight (274). But, something in me was triggered last Sunday: I saw two of those oval window stickers, 13.1 and 26.2, on the back of an SUV. I decided that day that I need to get up off my duff and start running again. I want to run a marathon, as soon as possible. So, I went "whole hog", as we say in Texas, and have determined to run my first marathon in mid-November. I'll be posting my progress and struggles in these forums.
Call me crazy. Call me optimistic. But, any offering of help or criticism will be appreciated. Let me know if I can help you, too.
