Welcome to Just Run

Chuck Kaekel

Welcome to “Just Run” my modest attempt at a blog about all things running. My name is Chuck Kaekel and I have been running on and off for almost 40 years.

I am by no means an expert on running so my perspective will be that of an recreational runner. I can run a 10k just fine but a half marathon is a real challenge and a full marathon is right at the limit of what I can do.

There are many reasons to run and mine has been and continues to be for the health benefits both physical and psychic. My hope is to help promote healthful running here in the south valley. I will also promote local running events because they often support good causes, are a lot of fun, and are very helpful motivation for doing your daily runs when you don’t really feel like it.

I am a member of the South Valley Running Club (SVRC) and will shamelessly promote them and their activities whenever I can. If you are a race director or just know of local activities that could use a plug here, shoot me an email and I will do what I can.

I am new to this blog business so I’ll ask you to forgive my spelling and grammar errors ahead of time. If you have comments or suggestions let me know.

Hope you like it and as always, lace up and Just Run.
