i am unhealthy

Walt Disney quote about Disney World
In 1999, i never imagined a decade later where running would fulfill a childhood dream.


i am unhealthy.

So on April 15 (tax day), 1999, i began ‘running’.

It consisted of jogging from our mailbox to our neighbor’s mailbox – about 100 meters away.

One mail box a day for a week. The pace was slower than walking.

The second week i jogged two mailboxes a day.

Third week, three mailboxes. Fourth week, four mailboxes.

It took one month before i was jogging the equivalent of one lap around a High School track.

Ten years later, i found myself at the 2009 Masters Track & Field World Championships (in Finland) in the M50-54 400 meters.

This train of thought continues with “i am a wretch” at the next Blog
