Longboat's profile   

Resident historian
Name: Neil Longhurst
Profession: Retired from business career
Why do I run: 
"I just felt like running!" - Forrest Gump
Why I started running: 
Ran in HS (miler and XC), but liked tennis and basketball more. 27 years later, my daughter ran school XC. I ran a little with her. We moved to Valencia, Spain;I ran around the neighborhood. Some guys at work spotted me running, and asked me to run with the work Club de Athletismo. First run with them was 16k; I made it without much problem. Back the next week, then twice a week. Then they invited me to a road race. Finished a half marathon -- and I was hooked for life!
