I’m “Jun”, a mid-forties. civilian, army veteran guy with two kids, a wife, (taking care of) a very old and sick-with-Alzheimer-and-diabetes- mother-in-law, work, and school. The most basic truth about this blog thing is that I want to hold myself accountable for this mission that I’m going to try to accomplish. I’m going to qualify for the Boston International Marathon. Things have changed since I got out of the service about 9 years ago. I used to be strong and fast, literally. Those days seem all gone now but I might find some kind of new strength and inspiration from this thing they call “vegan ism”. I don’t know what’s going to happen, this could be just another wishful thinking for me again. I hope not.
