A new Chapter(s)
My first book of running stories spanned the early years of the new century and is very much a story of love and discovery when my rekindled relationship with the sport (in my late 30’s) was young and alive.
This second offering of stories chronicles a new phase in my running passion.The celebration is still there and now it is accompanied by a new exploration – one more mature.While the first set of stories marveled in new heights this set marvels in the breadth and width of the sport.
This compilation opens with the story of my first triathlon and closes with the story of my initiation into the ultra-marathon.I’m not getting any faster and never will be more than a mid-packer but I’m still in love with the sport and finding new edges to explore.
These stories are sorted by date of creation – oldest to newest to give you some sense of the timeline within which they were born.
