I moved to Hancock from Connecticut in September 2017. I retired from 40 years of teaching June 2018. After commuting to NH on weekends for 9 months, I am now here permanently. During those first weekends in NH, I was just trying to find new running routes... I was lucky to run into several MILERS on some of these runs.
Since my college days, I have always run to relieve stress. It wasn't until 10 years later that I started to up the mileage. This happened when I joined a local running club - Sport Hill Runners. Their motto was "No Hills, No Thrills".
We ran twice weekly at 5:30 am for 4-5 miles and long runs on Saturdays followed by recovery on Sundays.
Someone was always training for a marathon, so I trained for my first half and eventually a full. I have trained for a marathon pretty much every year since 1990. However, I have only run the race once a decade. I am due to run one in my 60s. Maybe this year will be the year.....
With the Sport Hill runners, we also ran several Ragnar Relays as well as many of the local shorter races. I have really enjoyed running the small NH races because I am not fond of crowds. It has also given me a chance to get to know the Monadnock region.
I would be happy to train long runs with anyone wanting to do a marathon. I am NOT fast!! (10 minute miles) I like to have a slow build up and I don't mind going out early in the dark.
I am honored to be your new treasurer. I have the time and I really enjoy all the club activities.
