Steve Tomczyk Moving Forward...
I started by finding a small group of people who ran on a regular basis. I went to a doctor for a checkup, and despite some problems with asthma, I began running short distances, close to home on a regular basis despite the weather.
I signed up for an 8K run in February of 2011. I ran the route (slowly) a few times before the event. I then knew I COULD do this despite the time.
I’ve continued running for a variety of reasons, but found it better to go alone. No guilt if I take a day off. No excuses from others to hold me back.
I now regularly run about 15 miles per week. I walk to most locations for errands and snowshoe whenever I can.
