Who is Shoo?

Me in 1976 12 yrs old

Shoo is a 51 year old south Louisiana native who currently resides in Albuquerque NM. As of January  6th, 2015 I consider myself a runner.  I started the addiction hobby after 25 plus years of being very inactive physically.  My weight ballooned to 183 pounds. That is way too much for my 5’6″ size.

So, after much research, a drastic change in diet and purchasing way too expensive running attire, I hit the trails of the Sandia foothills and begin to train.  I set my sights on my first “official” run on the April 25th Pat’s Run in Tempe Arizona.

My first day of running I was able to complete a half mile!  A HALF MILE!  Not a half marathon.  A half mile.  Determined I continued to put on foot in front of the other and got inspired by the improvement.  Thus began Shoo Runs!

Follow my journey as I seek improvement and continue to enjoy this wonderful sport, addiction and hobby.  Experience the ups and downs associated with running in my early 50’s. Feel the pains and the triumphs that lay before.  Experience Shoo Runs! as it happens.
