Starting off Right

It's not exactly a New Year's Resolution, but I did finally commit to my next Marathon, the Alaska Marathon in June ( This, and my other Marathon, getting out of Debt, are going to be the focus' of this blog.

So, today, in addition to getting in a quick 2.4 mile run and enjoying some time off, I have almost finished reading Dave Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover". I've been listening to his podcast for a few months, after realizing we needed to get out of debt NOW! Well, actually back in May is when it finally hit me and we started our Debt snowball.

I'll be tracking both the progress of both Marathons, AK and Debt, in this blog. I'll get into specific number of mileage, but keep it kinda vague on the debt side :)

In the past I've tried to get my wife involved in the marathon training, but I've come to realize it's not for everyone. However, I need to get her and my family on board with the Debt Marathon. We didn't get this far overnight, so we're not going to get out of it overnight either.

More later...
