Longtime lurker; firsttime poster.

bio: 33yrs;88kgs+/-3;180cms

exercise history: started gym exercise in late teens - on reflection spent much time doing cardio w/ light lifting from age 17-23; nothing serious, productive or what I would now call effective. 'Fun' runner from 23yrs - have run on off for 10 years - have completed two marathons (2004, 2006);4 half-marathons(2003,2005,2007,2009) - will not be going to the olympics but really enjoy it. Discovered exrx.net in 2007; have completed two Starting Strength cycles over 3 months; first in late 2009 while studying for masters; 2nd early 2010 prior to wedding.

self assessment: moderately fit; below average strength for weight. With exrx have increased interest in form.

motivation: I exercise for my general well being; I am a Librarian, I require exercise for stress management, as a hobby and to compensate for being inactive during the working day.

purpose of journal: to provide a more permanent record for my activities, as well as provide a reference for reflection.
