I am a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. I am David Graves and live in Birmingham, AL. I grew up in South Alabama, graduated college in Mobile, AL and toured the country singing for a year before moving to Birmingham in 1997. I took up running in 2008 after being inspired by my friend, Jen West, weight loss journey. My first run was 1.2 miles in 18 minutes. I followed the Jeff Galloway run/walk method. Four months later, I completed my first half marathon. You never forget crossing the finish line of that first half marathon.
Starting this blog several years ago to relay my own journey of life unfolding. I am thankful for all that running has given me. I have been fortunate to meet so many amazing people and work with some great companies. I am a Feetures Brand run ambassador for 2014 www.feeturesbrand.com, Skin Sake ambassador www.skinsake.com, and a Captain at the new Nike online run community gonike.me/jdiforum
