Sean BrownMy name is Sean Brown.

I live in the East Bay area of Northern California and have a wife, two boys (14 and 12), and a completely insane German Shorthaired Pointer named Mosely.  I’m keeping this blog because I find myself doing a lot of thinking as I put one foot after another while I run.  It can be a struggle because everyday I have the choice to either get my butt out there on the road, or succumb to laziness.  Mr. Newton was right (at least about me) that I will, in fact, “persist in a state of rest … unless acted upon by an external force.”  That external force has to be me or none of the lessons I’ve learned from running will have any meaning.

It was September 2009 when I restarted running.  This blog covers much of what has happened since.

I’ve received lots of questions about the masthead image since I put it up, so this is as good a place as any to explain.  In January 2012, I ran with an ultra team in the Ragnar Florida Keys relay race.  The very end of my first run, a 13 mile double-leg,  had me running into, then one lap around, Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, FL.  An experience I won’t soon forget!
