About Guest Bloggers

In order to widen the views of running given in this blog, I'm inviting a few other runners to be guest bloggers. However, because this blog is a personal blog and is not a tutorial blog, guest bloggers must be active in some aspect of running that supplements my activities, such as running triathlons, wheel chair competition, running with prosthetics, or running in locations that are different than my locations. In addition, guest bloggers will be expected to write occasional posts about their activities rather than doing just one-time posts. Guest posts must be personal and must explain in positive ways how the runner overcame challenges to his or her running. Hopefully, the guest blogs will help runners having similar problems be motivated to put in the time, sweat, and tears that will be needed if they are to become successful runners.

Here are the bios of my guest bloggers.
