Why did I start this blog?

Dear readers,

Welcome to my running blog, “Run, Peter, Run.” My name is Peter Kallai, and I am excited to share with you my journey of running and how it has become a big part of my life.

I have always been a pretty active person, but it wasn’t until about a year ago when I made some significant changes to my lifestyle. I quit drinking alcohol, started eating healthier, and I started running more frequently. And I mean more frequently. My total running mileage was over 1000 miles in 2022 and in the process I lost over 30 pounds. It was during this time that I discovered the joy and mental clarity that running brings me. It started as a way to stay in shape, but soon turned into a passion that I couldn’t live without.

I created this blog to document my progress as I train for my first marathon in May, and to share with you the ups and downs of my journey. I believe that running is not just about physical health, but also about mental and emotional well-being. That’s why I want to use this platform to talk about the impact running has had on my life and how it has helped me cope with stress. I also hope to inspire others to make positive changes to their lifestyle, as I have done, and to show that anyone can do it. I will also share my insights on any new gear. And trust me, the more you run, the more shoes you will buy!

So, whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned runner, I believe that we can all learn and grow from each other’s experiences. I can’t wait to share my journey with you, and I hope you’ll join me as we run together.

Happy running!
