Sharing my cycling experiences after many years of sharing my running experiences. A view from the back of the pack.
Look at that quad!
Wow that's super impressive - 31 years!! I hope I am running that long. I've only been running since 2008, so I guess 4 years...pales in comparison to you! Congrats!
Great picture from the time vault Johann! Only 4 years running here.
Congrats on your running anniversary, Johann!I have been running since 2005. Before I began to run I had swum and played soccer.
Wow! That's quite a running career. Mine started in 2005. I'm a newbie!
I started running in 1993, during high school, but slacked off through my twenties with a few short running spurts of a few months. I made a lifestyle commitment 3 years ago and have been going strong every since.
More than three decades of running - fantastic! I ran my first road race in 1985 at age 8 (just for the fun of it with my friends, of course), so its 27 years on and off for me :) .
Amazing achievement Johann! I've been running on and off for about 22 years (unfortunately more off than on).
31 years of running is a lot! Very impressive. And that is a fast marathon!
Congrats to you! That's really cool that you've been at it so long. (Especially b/c you're only 34, right? ; )I've been at it for 15 years now and can say it's part of the fabric of my life.
Congrats on 31 years of running. A lot of people are afraid to run because they worry about the long term impact on their joints. I've read some articles that say running keeps your joints healthy and allows you to have a higher quality of life in the long term. You are proof that running smart allows you to run for many years. You should do a post on what worked for you (physical, mental, and long term passion) and what to avoid.I ran most of my life but for sports (soccer, baseball, basketball,...). I ran my first marathon (3:48) in 2006 and never looked back.Awesome pic of you - Leading the pack.
Well done Johann, congrats on the FIRST 30 years :) .... 5 years me but only now long distance trails - my old knees can`t cope with much road running. Cheers Mike
That's awesome!The photo and the fact that you've been running that long. Great!
31 years...Wow! Congrats Johann.
Wow...so awesome. I'm a newbie-ish runner and really only been doing so seriously for almost 4 years. I hope I have at least another 31 in me...
Sjoe ons word oud! Maar hou so aan!
Awesome! Cheers to 31+ and many more years of running!
That is great, love the picture! I ran my first marathon in 1997 - but it was a 3:59. My PB is 3:44 in 2009 so we are close :). I hope you have at least another 31 years of running!
I don't know which is more impressive - the PB or the fact that you've been running for 31 years. Actually your longevity as a runner probably wins by a nose.
a 3:49 marathon is quite an accomplishment Johann. You are truly an awesome runner. I have a friend who has been at the front of the pack (in his youth) and now at the back of the pack (in his 70's), and he says that the back of the pack is WAY FUNNER. That's where you will find me. I suspect I will find you in the middle, if I can get there. Awesome legacy of running you have Johann!!!!! You have something geat about you!!
Love the picture! Wow, you've been running a long time. I started running in 2010...just a baby. :)
I always enjoy seeing your "throw back" pictures! You have been running for such a long time. I am not sure when to say my running started. There are big gaps between some of the sections. I ran a little in high school: a few weeks- to prep for soccer. Then again at the end of college for about 2 years, and then started to get serious about about 4 years ago.
I have gaps, too, but I ran my first marathon in 2006. Congrats on 31 years of running!
great picture, and 31 years! wow!! i have been running since 1998 - don't let me catch up to you! :)
Congrats Johann! I began logging a daily journal in 1984 so I'm up to 28 years...
Wow, 31 years and still going strong. Great picture to have.
