Let's stay in contact

Welcome! and thank you for visiting my little home on the web. I would love to tell you more about my journeys in tech and running. I mostly write about what I learn from running long distances and building large scale web applications. I also enjoy reading your email responses.

Thank you, Chris

My journey from lazy to walking to running has trained me to tackle all areas of my life that can be improved. I started with a simple goal, 10,000 steps/day and have journeyed to running 5 Kilometers consistently.

When I started I wasn’t thinking about running. I was only thinking about walking more. It was a small goal. It was a simple achievable goal. I only had to make a small change to my daily schedule.

Overtime I realized I was meeting my walking goal. I increased my walking goal to 15,000 steps. Another small increment. Little by little my body became stronger. Little by little I was unknowingly preparing myself for running.

When the weather was warm and the runners were out on my walking trail I knew it was my time. I would start running. I had prepared my body for several months before I went for my first jog. Slow and steady. I built my healthy habit brick by brick over a long time.

Now I’m a runner. I run for fun. I run for a challenge. I run to think. I run to relax. I run to push limits. I run to be a better me.

The simple process of slow and steady improvement works. I’m improving 1% every day. I know it works because it worked with running. I do not fear the ‘dip’. I know that on the other side of the Dip is success and a better me. I do not power through the dip. I do not endure the dip. I simply traverse the dip knowing success waits for me on the other side.

I fell in love with running after I committed to running a 5k everyday during the month of September. Now I'm training for my first Marathon on October 1st, 2017.
