Here it is folks, another running blog! Just what the ultra-community needs. I'm no elite athlete, I pay for my own shoes and steal gels from races to re-coup entry fees. So why am I writing? More importantly, why are you reading?! In the spirit of the Occupy Wall Street movement, this site will reflect life as the 99% - the runners who finish the day after a race starts, spend more than 45 seconds in aid stations and occasionally walk the downhills. Did you know that some runners actually check cutoff times, rather than course record splits? Welcome to I Run Slow!
