aboutHi.  My name is Jim Paterson and this is my blog – Running Longer: Years Behind Us, Miles Ahead.

I came to the running game late after years of letting myself go.  2010 I decided to get fit and found running was both effective and meditative.  After a few 5ks I ran my first half marathon in 2013 and my first marathon in 2017.

As a late comer to the sport I am well aware of the issues faced by masters runners and look forward to sharing what I have found along the way with you.  Together we can keep running longer – with years behind us and miles ahead.

I hope you enjoy and look forward to hearing from you.
