About

Hello!!  Welcome to my site…as you can probably tell by now, this site is mostly about running, on occasion there will be other topics to discuss but mostly, it’s about running and anything remotely related to running.

Big Sky Bling!

Big Sky Bling!

The central theme is my journey to complete 50 marathons in 50 states, but it’s not just about me – my wonderful wife Paula and awesome son, AJ are a huge part of this grand adventure as we endeavor to travel the country over the next 10-15 years!  I figure 4-5 quality marathons and associated training cycles is about the limit of what I can train and run for in any given year.

Paula (aka PK and Wifey) has a fabulous running themed blog in place with lots of followers Never A Dull Bling, which actually inspired this site, so make sure you go check it out too.  The goal is to offer commentary, updates, laughs, tears, jeers, and cheers…related to our journey, most of the time.

As you will quickly figure, we live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest just a bit north of Seattle, the Emerald City, that we love.  We are huge fans of the Seattle Seahawks, Sounders, and Mariners and take in games whenever we can.  You’ll also notice plenty of coffee and beer on the site.  I am fortunate to have a fabulous job working for Starbucks Technology in the global support center in Seattle.

Please feel free to comment and join in the discussions…share your thoughts and say hello.

Run strong, run safe, and run happy!

Cheers!

James
