It all started about 40 years ago with a visit to the doctor. I was told
"I should have bought the
extended warranty."
I had high blood pressure and 
would need to take medication. I told him give me six months and the running began. I decided the side effects of running(seeing wonderful places, meeting amazing people, increased energy and weight loss) seemed far better than those of medication(insert those from TV adds here). I started keeping track on Jan 1 1979 so I reached 100,000 just short of 40 years. I actually have 40 years of old fashion log books so it
is very anally documented. 

Shortly after I began running I got in with the RIGHT crowd and began competing in races from the mile to the marathon. I have since run 21 marathons and I am trying to do at least one every decade of my life, starting in my 20s. Luckily I have a very supportive family who have seen me do some pretty crazy runs at all times of the day and night. I never ran in HS or college so everything was figured out on my own, but looking back I sure wish I had. The most important thing I learned is that the human body can do amazing things if you just ask. 

Now my biggest problem is what to put on my ROADID since it has had “100,000 Miles or Bust” on it for about approx 15 years. A good day running trumps all!! Well almost, since my wife and kids may read this.
