Personal:

I'm married with four children.  I run with a group called the Bingham Butt-Kickers, a really fun group of people that gets me out running early on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and sometimes Saturdays.   I recently found out that I've been running with poor form for many years, which has probably contributed to some nagging aches and pains I've had for years.  One of my big goals now is to be able to run with better form and to have running feel more effortless.  I hope this won't take too many years to achieve!

Well, after struggling with hamstring issues for about the two past months, I think I'm finally healed and back to running.  Hopefully I'll be better about blogging also as we approach two months until SGM.  And hopefully I'll get some quality training in so I'm somewhat prepared.  I met with the group for the first time in a few weeks and we ran along the JR trail beginning at O. Roi Hardy park.  I kept the pace easy and tried to work on a more correct stride.  That's one of the things I really worked on while injured, trying to get a more efficient stride.  Things felt more comfortable today, so hopefully I'm on the right track.  I just want running to feel more effortless, it seems like I make it harder than it should be.  So today was a "step" in the right direction.  It's good to be back, and I hope to continue injury free for at least a couple of months.
