Why a blog? and why now?

"So, do you have a blog?" my uncle Steve asked yesterday, after a momentary pause in the conversation.

"A blog?" I thought to myself. "What on earth would I have to blog about?"

I tried to sound nonchalant. "No, not yet. Do you?"

Oh, did he!

He went on to tell me how great it was to blog, how it kept him in touch with members of our family, and how he'd really gotten into writing since he started publishing online.

"You should give it a try," he continued, "You can write about your running, and what's going on at the Hollywood Bowl -- you know, keep people updated on what's going on in your life."

It's true, I love to talk about my trail running; wilderness is my true passion. So I'm doing it. I'm blogging! Come with me down a crooked trail or two -- and watch this space for more info on running, sports nutrition, and great trails to explore!

Of course, if you'd rather read the work of a more experienced blogger, please visit my uncle Steve. He's an enthusiastic blogger -- and I've got him to thank for this new obsession of mine.

Read on -- and I'll see you on the trail!
