A Little More About Louie
As for what got me into running, it was a combination of things. My post-graduation life was not going the way I had thought it would. I was struggling to find a job and had recently gone through a break up. I decided to go buy a pair of running shoes because at least that was something I could control. I could control whether I got up and went for a run.
I started running pretty slowly. I was excited about a 15 minute mile and being able to run more than a mile. Eventually, I decided to start running races. Well, I was talked into it because I had no plans to race. I was not comfortable with my ability to run, but still signed up for my first race. It was a the Harvard Pilgrim Finish at the 50 10k on July 3rd. I have been addicted since. I have run 5k's, 10k's, 5 milers, a Spartan Race, and other obstacle races. I plan to continue to run them and I hope you enjoy the reviews and other posts.
