First blog posts can be intimidating. They are supposed to set the tone for the entirety of your blog - nothing like a little pressure, eh? So, let me start with this statement: I'll never be a swimmer. I can fake it, but I'll never swim well. It's not in my genes. I can fake being able to run, but alas, swimming is a different story.
I swam 10 wimpy laps yesterday and they weren't pretty. On the other hand, I ran 5k in 26.06; a time that I know isn't wonderful, but isn't completely appalling either. I can work off that time and know that I can improve it. Those laps? Well, I can make them a little less ugly, but it won't stop me from looking like a spazz splashing around in the water.
So what's the purpose of this blog? Who knows! Whatever I feel like at any given time. I plan to run 1,000+ miles in 2011 (more on that later), enter lots of races, and have lots of fun doing it. Plan on oodles of pictures (bare bones for the time being- sorry), sarcasm, and plenty of weirdness.
One last thing - about the name: take it as either: watch Meg O run or watch me go run. I like the versatility of it!
