Run n Drum

    Hey everyone.  Not a new runner, but new to the site.  I live in Central Texas with my wife and two daughters.  I've always been fairly active and have done quite a few running and multi-sport events.  I had Achilles surgery about a year and a half ago and am still rebounding from that.  It's been a very long and slow recovery.  I'm just now hitting 20 mile weeks again trying to build a solid base.  I've never been fast and don't really care to be.  I just love to run and stay active.  I do have aspirations of one day entering the world of Ultras, but we will see what the ankle says about that as I continue to heal.  Looking forward to jumping in here.
