Christian. Family minded, do-it-yourself homeowner, former high school/college athlete. Now semi obsessive about running and running info.
Living in Chambersburg, PA.
I found out that a grandfather 8 generations ago (Edward Marshall) ran/walked 65 miles in 18 hours in 1737. He was recruited as a runner for the Walking Purchase in Eastern Pennsylvania. I retraced his approximate route in 2013 and matched the time.
|Why do I run:
Fitness, sense of accomplishment, to be with running friends. Fun. The structure to my day is useful too.
|Why I started running:
I was tired of getting out of breath with just a little exercise so I started running with a YMCA "bootcamp" group to start towards fitness - April 2007. And I wanted to slim down to not look so out of shape with my shirt off.
