Back in 2014, at the age of 39, I decided to live a healthier lifestyle. I never felt I was overweight or unhealthy, but looking back now, I probably was. I also became a vegetarian in 2016. Also part of my healthier living transformation I added running into my weekly routine in 2014. No long distances at first, just went out and ran.
After some time of running in my neighborhood I decided to enter my first 5k, the Inaugural RunDisney Star Wars Dark Side 5k. So I flew from New Hampshire to Florida for my first race, wanted the first one to be a really fun one. That 5k was so much fun, I was hooked. That 5k led me to 10ks and half marathons, which are my favorite race lengths currently. I also really enjoy doing destination races, so I can add a vacation after those race weekends.
Running in rural New Hampshire gives me the opportunity to see the changing seasons and many animals that love to interrupt my running, from rabbits, turkeys, deer, and bears. After my first interaction with some animals I needed a better way of bringing my phone with me, and that is when I came across Armpocket. Maybe I will see you at the races or just running, don’t forget to say hi.
