I’m Jeremy, a husband, father and runner in Richmond, Va. I started this blog in January 2011 as a way to document my journey from being “just a runner” to becoming a triathlete. With my first and second sprint triathlons under my belt, I completed my goal race – an Olympic-distance triathlon – on Sept. 25, 2011.
But a funny thing happened on the way to triathlon – I fell back in love with running, and got much better at it. I set healthy PRs in every distance, from 5k to 10k (and then again and again) to the half-marathon. I capped off more than a year of hard training with a 44-minute PR at the Shamrock Marathon on March 18, 2012.
In June 2012 my journey took a new turn as we welcomed our second daughter. Life is busy, and even though I am not blogging anymore (other than race recaps), I’m still running strong, looking to chip away at PRs and dipping my toes into the world of ultra-running. You can still find me on DailyMile.
