Welcome to The Run!

This is not my first effort at a blog to follow my running adventure.  My original blog is HERE.  I’m migrating over here for a a number of reasons not the least of which are: A) Difficulty some of my friends have had posting comments over there; and B) I wanted to have a simpler, more to the point URL to be able to point people to.  If you would like to read the (brief and so far unspectacular) history of my little middle-aged running adventure I’m more than willing to wait while you meander back through the posts over there.  If nothing else, please read the first one since it explains what I’m doing here.  Now defunct.

There, that wasn’t too painful.

As soon as I get this post “published” (that seems like such a strong word) I’m going to post one last one there directing people here.

The most important things to remember are this:

I have no clue what I’m doing as a runner, but I’ve got some really great trainers and coaches guiding me along the way.

I have no clue what I’m doing as a blogger, and I have absolutely no trainers or coaches providing guidance on this part.  Sorry.  You’re on my own with this part.

And finally, I know there’s going to be a whole lot more going on than just running and writing about running.  This is my Mid-Life Awakening and all I know is that wherever this goes, it’s gonna be a blast!

But for now, I have a kitchen to clean.

  1. Julianne I am really enjoying your posts each week. Your thoughts are put down so well it reminds me of the book (and former blog) Julie and Julia. So…maybe at the end of this you will be a novelist as well!! I was reading one of your blogs from last week regarding your training schedule and wanted to offer a lesson learned by myself last year when training for the first Triathlon I did. I was training everyday with no days off for about two months and then I hurt my knee (too much running and biking). I had to take some time off and was so angry with myself. I went on some triathlon training sites and running sites and they recommend taking one day off a week for recovery purposes. Once I put the one day of rest into my schedule I was able to train harder each day and felt better doing it. My knee got better and I stopped aggravating it – plus it was nice to have that one day without the exercise monster hanging over you. Keep up the good work! You are doing awesome! You will be great!

  2. Yay! Congrats on the WordPress page. I love reading your blogs! Can’t wait to follow you in your running adventures. Just so you know, you Rock! 🙂
