After reading several running blogs, I figured I would give it a go too. My name is Joshua aka “Dewey,” and I recently hung up my Air Force uniform for the last time after 20 years of service. Now it is time to work for fun!
All of my great ideas are born and my problems solved as my feet glide across the ground below me. I ran track in high school (200 & 1-mile relay), but replaced it with bodybuilding shortly after joining the Air Force. My distance running adventures began the summer of 2010. I went on a two-week road trip to the Pacific Northwest; during my planning, I discovered one of the cities was hosting its annual 10k race on the beach. I figured why not try it out, I had about a month to train. How hard could a 10k really be, right? I quickly discovered that six miles was a long way! However, once I crossed that finish line, I set course on a life-changing journey. Within a couple of months, I kicked the weightlifting habit, lost 35 pounds muscle, and signed up for my first marathon. I have been hooked ever since – finding new challenges and new paths to travel – it’s the glue that keeps me together.
When I am not running my other hobby is creating craft beer…running fuel.
