Welcome all to The Half-Fast Runner blog.
I had been kicking around the idea of doing a blog for my running, gear and companies I like as well as running related articles and tips that I find helpful. As the title of this blog implies, I am far from an elite runner and the same could be said for my writing. In fact there are chimps that can type better than me and some probably run better too.
I got back into running in 2012 after a 29 year hiatus. Back when I was younger, it was a chore, something I had to do; today I run because I enjoy it and it's relaxing. Another thing I really enjoy about running today is the community and camaraderie of runners on social media. There are so many great people all over the world to interact with as well as get advice and tips to be better at the sport (yes, running is a sport).
So I hope my little blog is able to add something to the conversation, provide some useful information and maybe a few laughs as well.
One thing I try to keep in mind, and I hope you will too, is that it's not about how fast you run or how far you run; it's that you have just made the effort to go out and run.
