>General Running>Who all is here and what are you doing?
My name is Travis and I live in St. Augustine, Florida near Jacksonville. I am Midwest transplant originally from Indiana. I love living in Florida because I can comfortably run every day of the year and the winters here are awesome. My wife and I started running together about 1 1/2 years ago to stay fit.
Running has become my devotional time. I used to try to get up early everyday and pray and read my Bible before work and now I kill two birds with one stone by praying while running and I listen to the Bible on my Zune. It is an awesome feeling to be able to get exercise while communing with God and enjoying His beautiful creation.
I recently just ran my first Half in 1:54:51 on Thanksgiving Day. I am now training for my first marathon which will be Feb. 15th. I am running the 2nd annual "26.2 with Donna" in Jacksonville, which they say is the only Breast Cancer awareness marathon in the nation. I hope to finish it in under 4:00:00.
I wish all of you the very best as you pursue your running goals in 2009!
