I am a newbie to running, i ran a little in 2011... Finished my first marathon in Oct 2011. 2012 I wore down 6 pairs of shoes running 2408 miles including 4 more marathons. my goal is to finish Boston (now more then ever). My best marathon was 3:12:57 ~ missed Boston qualifying time by 2:57 ~ some say it was for the best, but i will qualify if i keep trying. sorry I wrote about running not what i am looking for ~ well i am into running / swimming / cycling... 2013 is the year of the Triathlon, my first is scheduled May. I would love someone to share my passion for being active, but if your not ~ that’s okay too we all have different interests, Almost more important then sharing an interest your lover should promote you…help you fulfill your hopes and dreams. I have a great family and nearly all are local ~ so someone that enjoys family and all that goes with it. I don't drink, it is part of my healthy lifestyle, but I won't hold it against anyone whom does enjoy the occasional drink. I am pretty sure I couldn’t be with someone who smokes.
