Rob Williams: Here We Go Again...

COLUMBIA TUSCULUM, OH (FOX19) -

Let the sweat and sometimes tears commence. 

I recently decided, that there was another marathon in my future. 

The first group run was this past Saturday. Runners gathered for the seven-and-a-half mile run on Eastern Avenue in Columbia Tusculum.

The House of Run N Tri is leading the training program for marathons and half marathons this spring including the Flying Pig (the one for which I am training). 

We will meet twice a week, but the big long run happens early Saturday morning. 

I was nervous and excited driving to meet the other runners. 

I haven’t run a marathon since Boston 2012.  That’s the year before the infamous bombing, and really felt I was done. 

Guess I’m not. 

Started getting the urge late last year, and decided to see if I had another one in me.  I don’t yet know the answer to that question.  However, I’m going to have fun finding out.  You know that whole corny saying, “the journey is the destination (blah, blah, blah)”  I have come to realize that I’m not as young, as fast or as strong as I once was, and that’s OK. 

During this training cycle, I’m going to stop pressuring myself and enjoy the runs and the company. 

If you have ever thought of training for a half or full marathon check out  House of Run N Tri: http://www.jfttraininggroup.com/  Or call 513.871.2200  It’s a challenging and nurturing environment. 

There was even mini cupcakes at the end of the run.  Score!
