Introduction I ran my first step in August of 2005 and birthed the dream of completing a marathon, chronicled in my first blog "Marathon Dreams." I then set my sights on a higher goal, chronicled in "Qualifying for the Boston Marathon," which I achieved with a 3:38:22 in October 2009. But these milestones were only the beginning. I approach running as I approach life; undiluted. I want to be a better runner, a faster runner than I was last month or last year. By knowing I'm still improving; I know I'm still OK. I'm alive... to run yet another day.
