Mike's Road Running History
Adjusting to the Sonoran Desert
I began running in April 1978. My first race was the Chicago Distance Classic 20K in early July. I ran my first marathon in September 1978.
I have now started my 41st year of running. In July 2010, I competed in my 500th race and I completed #600 in July 2013. It has taken a little longer to get to 700 since there are a lot fewer races out here in Southern Arizona. I hit that target in January 2017. Who knows - maybe I'll hit 800 by the time I'm 80.
I decided to create this web site to document some of my running history and to display some of my memorabilia and stuff collected over these many years. For some reason, I started keeping a scrapbook with each bib number and recording a few notes on each one to remind myself of the event. Since some races didn't have bib numbers in those early days, I kept notes on something else.
So here it is -
my electronic running scrapbook.
